TESDA eyes more grads under Build, Build, Build program
by Hazel Torida

LUNA, Apayao – The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority here is eyeing to produce more graduates under the metals and engineering sector to fill in the demand of skilled welders to work on the “Build Build Build” program of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“The government is seeking to construct big infrastructure projects, including airports, railways, bus rapid transits, roads and bridges, and seaports in various parts of the country. It is high time for Tesda to train more scholars under the construction sector, said Engr. Victor P. Brioso, Tesda Apayao provincial director.

He said being trained under Tesda is vital to generate workforce, especially in the Cordillera.

“Our thrust is to encourage individuals to avail of the skills training under the construction sector to produce more graduates,” he said.

He said in the past years, only a few enrolled under Tesda’s construction courses.

“Currently, there are 35 beneficiaries under basic welding and steel fabrication in Kabugao, and Sta. Marcela, Apayao,” he said.

Brioso assured Tesda will continue to provide intervention and that all sectors will be given free skills training.

Tesda-Apayao supervising TESDS Fidelia Galvezo urged the graduates to apply the skills they have learned from the institution.

“There are so many job opportunities in the welding industry that can be applied in the different sectors, including construction, agriculture, mining and automotive,” she said.

She said Tesda is known for its holistic approach in teaching, of which part of trainees’ learning is to instill the importance of positive attitude and discipline to have a successful career.

Sta. Marcela Mayor Evelyn Martinez encouraged the trainees to establish a steering committee to lead their cooperative and be able to request for another financial assistance to the local government unit and other national government agencies to realize their goals and objectives.

The graduates were given cash, which will be used to purchase two portable welding machines and protective gears.

“This is just the beginning of your journey and I hope this will yield a positive result that will improve your financial status and somehow will help the country meet the demand for skilled workers like you” Martinez said.
