Tuesday, April 8, 2014
THE Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) has allocated P6.6 million for the conduct of community-based training programs in Zamboanga City.
Tesda Director-General Joel Villanueva said the allocation is part of the P1.022 billion funds that President Benigno Aquino III has allotted for the community-based trainings of Tesda.
Villanueva said the community-based training program is for out-of-school youths (OSYs) who are interested to earn skills to be able to land jobs for a living.
Villanueva said that among the skills trainings that will be conducted for OSYs are welding, computer, and language.
He said the P6.6-million allocation will be divided into the two congressional districts in the city.
He said the OSYs, upon completion of the training, will receive a National Certificate and will be provided with livelihood starter kits. (Bong Garcia)
