55 IPs benefit from TESDA skills training
by Imee Dong-as and Glenda Marquez

Various skills trainings available at the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority benefited 55 indigenous peoples in the region in line with the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to improve the lives of marginalized sectors.

Of the 55 IPs, 37 were trained in Pinukpuk, Kalinga while 18 took their training in Kibungan, Benguet, a fourth class municipality 62 kilometers north of Baguio City.

Tesda Kalinga Director Joel Pilotin said the trainings given at Ballayangon, Pinukpuk from Oct. 10 to 13 were manicure/pedicure, basic hair cutting, mushroom production and skills/livelihood training under the community-based training modality.

Of the 37 beneficiaries, 17 were females and 20 were males.

Meanwhile, the 18 women from Kibungan received skills training in bread making under the Special Skills Training Program as part of the effort to empower more women through technical vocational education and training (TVET).

Tesda Baguio-Benguet Director David Bungallon said they will continue to push for equal access to quality education, especially TVET.

He said more women will be encouraged to participate in TVET if the government will bring its programs and services closer to them.

The program was in coordination with the Cordillera Quest: Center for Complementary Education and Social Work Services, Inc.

Bungallon said culture in the workplace has been transformed and the provincial office looks forward to offering new opportunities to women.

“We only need to train and equip our women workforce in this age of automation,” he said.
