TESDA to provide jobseekers skills training & assessment
by Press release

The Technical Education Skills Development Authority is set to provide skills training and assessment to some jobseekers who took part in the recent Labor Day job fair last May 1.

Those to be given training were 47 jobseekers referred by the Department of Labor and Employment while 31 clients directly served by Tesda-CAR underwent skills training and assessment.

“Rest assured that we will be providing the necessary skills trainings that these jobseekers wish to avail from our agency,” said Engr. Manuel B. Wong, acting regional director of TESDA-CAR on May 8.

He said attending to the needs of the clients is in line with the President Rodrigo Duterte’s effort to aid the marginalized communities with skills development that would uplift their conditions.

He added that Tesda supports the objectives of other line agencies in providing quality services to the public.

“Although the mandate of Tesda focuses on trainings, we are also eyeing for a suitable employment for our graduates. Our thrust now is training for livelihood and employment after. It is a must that trained IP scholars and graduates get employed,” Wong said.

The annual Labor Day job fair in Baguio started a pivotal shift from simply offering jobs to becoming a T-N-K or the trabaho (job), negosyo (business), and Kabuhayan (livelihood), thus providing options to jobseekers.

The recent job fair offered 18,256 job vacancies with 2,638 for local employment from 38 companies and 15,618 overseas jobs offered by 10 manpower companies.

Based on DOLE’s report, 349 were hired on the spot for both local and overseas jobs.

A pre-registration was held on April 11 and 12 at the Regional Training Center and Baguio City School of Arts and Trades, respectively, to allow interested jobseekers to cut short their queuing time on the day itself.

Meanwhile, a total of 31 clients availed of Tesda programs and services, while 194 Filipino worker-applicants benefited from the wellness clinic set up by Tesda-Benguet during the same event.

“A total of 31 clients have been served and 28 have registered for various scholarship programs under Tesda. Three have registered under the free Competency Assessment and Certification for Workers,” said Engr. David Bungallon, Tesda-Baguio-Benguet provincial director.

Of the 31 served clients, four registered in Bread and Pastry Production National Certificate (NC) II; one in  Events Management Services NC II;  four in CNC Milling Machine Operations NC II; two in Caregiving NC II; two in Cookery NC II; three in Trainers Methodology I; one in Technical Drafting NC II; four in Shield Metal Arc Welding NC I; two in Barista NC II; one in Animation NC II; one in Slaughtering Operations NC II; three in Hydraulic Excavator NC II; and three have registered under CACW.

Bungallon said the provincial office provided health and wellness services to the public during the activity.

“The services were provided by our 16 community-based trainees under the Bottoms Up Budgeting program in Basic Training on Beauty Care with the City Government of Baguio,” he said.

He said 194 applicants were served, with 80 clients in Body Massage, 32 in haircut, and 82 in manicure-pedicure.
