Mamondiong nanguna sa pag-turn over ng TESDA training center sa Manolo Fortich

Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon—Personal na pinangunahan kahapon ni  Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Secretary  at Director General Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong  ang paglilipat sa lokal na pamahalaan ng Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon sa pangunguna ni Mayor Clive Quino ng pamamahala sa TESDA training facility sa Barangay Tangkulan sa nasabing lalawigan.

Sa ginanap na  turn-over ceremony  na dinaluhan nina  Rep. Ma. Lourdes Acosta-Albang   First District of Bukidnon, TESDA OIC Deputy Director General Gaspar Gayona, Assistant Executive Director Sonia Lipio, Provincial Director Kotie Bax, at mga opisyal ng  Manolo Fortich  na kinabibilangan nina  Vice Mayor Miguel Demate at mga miyembro ng  Sangguniang Bayan, sinabi ni  Secretary Mamondiong  na umaasa at nagtitiwala  siya na ang  Manolo Fortich Technical Skills and  Development Center ay magiging skills development hub na magbibigay ng skills training para sa anim na bayan na sakop ng unang distrito ng Bukidnon.

Ang TESDA ay tumulong sa  pagpapaayos at rehabilitasyon sa nasabing training center.

“By devolving to you our community-based training function, we demonstrate to you our trust that you will make this training facility a center of excellence. Your willingness to accept this devolution, for which I am very pleased, indicates your support to the reform agenda of the government,” ani Mamondiong.

Ayon sa  TESDA Chief,   inatasan siya ni Pangulong Rodrigo R. Duterte  na tugunan ang  mga pangangailangan ng mga technical vocational education and training (TVET)   sa Manolo Fortich,  na umano’y  dahilan kung kaya tatlong beses na niya itong  dinadalaw sa loob ng dalawang taon.

Malugod namang tinanggap  ni Mayor Quino ang   Technical Skills and Development Center,  nakaatang na mga  tungkilin at responsibilidad para dito. “We accept with open arms and open hearts the Technical Skills and Development Center and the functions and responsibility that goes with the devolution, because I have seen in TESDA and in Sec. Mamondiong his commitment and dedication to TVET. This is complementary to our program to provide free, quality education to our people.”

Sinabi ni Mamodiong na pangarap niya na   ang bawat bayan sa bansa ay magkaroon ng sariling TESD center at tiniyak nito na makikipagtulungan siya sa Kongreso at Department of Budget and Management  (DBM) upang maisakatuparan ito.

Kasabay sa nasabing turn-over, ipinagkaloob din ni Mamondiong  ang kauna-unahang registered program ng Center , ang kursong Organic Agriculture NC ll at kasama rito ang 150-slot scholarship, na karamihan ay para sa mga katutubo sa naturang munisipalidad.

Samantala,  sinabi ni  Mamodiong na magbibigay ng P5 milyon ang ahensya bilang pantapat sa g P5 million pledge  ni  Rep. Acosta-Alba  na gagamitong pondo  para  sa agarang  pagpapatayo ng  dormitory para sa mga trainees.

Ito’y  bilang tugon sa hamon ni Deputy Director General Gayona na gawing sustainable ang center  at nangako ng  dagdag  pang  TESDA scholarship slots sa local government unit (LGU) kung kinakailangan.

Kasabay sa pagbubukas ng Manolo Fortich Technical Skills and Development Center,mahigpit   na itinagubilin ni Mamondiong sa mga lokal na opisyal na  huwag  maging ‘choosy’ o walang  mangyayaring diskriminasyon sa pagpili ng mga trainee-scholars.

“My only request to you is not to discriminate in the selection of your trainee-scholars. We have a responsibility to serve those who have the least in our communities, particularly the members of the indigenous peoples,” mahigpit nitong tagubilin.

Ang training  facility na nakatayo sa 1,800-sq.m na lupain ng lokal na pamahalaan, ay itinayo noong Nobyembre 2016 sa ilalim ng co-management scheme noong  nakaraang administrasyon, subalit  napabayaan lamang.

Nang umupo si Mamondiong, ang TESDA ay pumasok sa isang memorandum of agreement (MOA) sa LGU ng Manolo Fortich para tumulong sa pagpapaayos sa pasilidad. Si Rep Acosta-Alba ay naglaan ng pondo mula sa kanyang  district community program para sa rehabilitasyon at pagmamantini sa pasilidad.

Ang  rehabilitasyon sa Manolo Fortich Technical Skills and Development Center ay natapos nitong Mayo.  Ito ang kauna-unahang local TESDA training facility na  gagamit ng solar power, na magiging ‘green and environment-friendly.” (END)

In Bukidnon, TESDA’s Mamondiong turns over training center to Manolo Fortich town

Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon—The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) here yesterday chalked up a first under the leadership of Secretary and Director General Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong when it devolved its community-based training function to the local government of Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon, symbolized by the turnover of the TESDA training facility in Barangay Tangkulan to Manolo Fortich Mayor Clive Quino.

In a turn-over ceremony attended by Rep. Ma. Lourdes Acosta-Alba of the First District of Bukidnon, TESDA OIC Deputy Director General Gaspar Gayona, Assistant Executive Director Sonia Lipio, Provincial Director Kotie Bax, and Manolo Fortich officials that included Vice Mayor Miguel Demate and members of the Sangguniang Bayan, Secretary Mamondiong expressed hope and confidence that the Manolo Fortich Technical Skills and Development Center, which TESDA itself helped rehabilitate and refurbish, will soon become a skills development hub that serves the skills training need of the six towns comprising the first district.

“By devolving to you our community-based training function, we demonstrate to you our trust that you will make this training facility a center of excellence. Your willingness to accept this devolution, for which I am very pleased, indicates your support to the reform agenda of the government,” said Mamondiong, who bared that he had received instruction from no less than President Rodrigo R. Duterte to attend to the TVET needs of Manolo Fortich, the reason he had visited the town at least three times in the last two years.

“We accept with open arms and open hearts the Technical Skills and Development Center and the functions and responsibility that goes with the devolution, because I have seen in TESDA and in Sec. Mamondiong his commitment and dedication to TVET. This is complementary to our program to provide free, quality education to our people,” Mayor Quino said in his acceptance remarks.

Mamondiong said his vision is for every town in the country to have its own TESD center and said he will work with Congress and the Department of Budget and Management towards the realization of this vision.

During the turn-over, Mamondiong delivered the training center’s first registered program with TESDA, a course on Organic Agriculture NC II, and with it, a 150-slot scholarship, mostly for indigenous peoples in the municipality.

He also matched the P5 million pledge of Rep. Acosta-Alba to finance the immediate construction of a trainee’s dormitory—in response to the challenge of Deputy Director General Gayona to make the center sustainable—and committed further TESDA scholarship slots to the LGU if the need arises.

“You can already start operating the Manolo Fortich Technical Skills and Development Center,” Sec. Mamondiong said. “My only request to you is not to discriminate in the selection of your trainee-scholars. We have a responsibility to serve those who have the least in our communities, particularly the members of the indigenous peoples,” he added.

The training facility, which sits on a 1,800-sq.m local government property, was established in November 2016 under a co-management scheme in the previous administration, but was soon forgotten and the facility moved swiftly into a state of disrepair.

When Sec. Mamondiong came to office, the TESDA entered into a memorandum of agreement with the LGU of Manolo Fortich, which assumed part of the responsibility to rehabilitate the facility. Rep. Acosta-Alba herself, under her district community training program, allocated funds for the facility’s rehabilitation and upkeep.

In May of this year, the Manolo Fortich TESD Center’s rehabilitation was completed. It is the first local TESDA training facility using solar power, making it green and environment-friendly
