TESDA TUTULUNGAN ANG MGA UMUWING OFWs

Magbibigay ng libreng skills training ang Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) sa mga umuwing Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) partikular na ang mga nagkaroon ng problema sa kanilang napuntahang bansa.

Ayon kay TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong, layunin ng programang ito na matulungan ang mga umuwing OFWs na mabigyan ng skills training na kanilang magagamit sa paghahanap ng trabaho sa loob at labas ng bansa.

Sa pamamagitan din ng programang ito ay matutukoy ng TESDA kung anong skills training ang ipagkakaloob sa umuwing OFWs base na rin sa kanilang kaalaman na hahasain para sa kanilang pagkakakitaan o itatayong negosyo.

Bukod sa libreng skills training ay mabibigyan din ng free assessment at certification ang mga OFW na tutugma sa mga kinakailangan trabaho sa loob at labas ng bansa habang isasama din ng TESDA sa proyektong ito ang kanilang mga kaanak (immediate family member).

Para sa mga interesadong aplikante, maaaring magtungo sa kanilang regional, provincial at district offices ng TESDA at dalhin ang mga kinakailangang dokumento tulad ng referral letter mula sa Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), kung wala ang pangalan sa database ng ahensiya at pasaporte ng umuwing OFW.

Sa mga kaanak naman ng mga umuwing OFW na nagnanais na mapasama sa programang ito ay kinakailangang magdala ng photocopy ng passport ng kanilang kapamilyang OFW, letter of authorization mula sa umuwing OFW at marriage or birth certificate na nagpapatunay na may kamag-anak itong OFW na umuwi sa bansa.

Upang mas maging epektibo ang programang ito ay bumuo din ang TESDA ng database para sa mga umuwing OFWs at kanilang mga kaanak na nakinabang sa naturang proyekto para mas mapadali ang gagawing monitoring ng ahensiya. ###

TESDA TO GIVE FREE TRAINING SKILLS TO RETURNING OFWs

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) said that it will provide free skills training to returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who worked in foreign countries affected by crisis or those who have problems with their employers abroad.

TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong said that the free skills training program aims to assist the OFWs in finding employment here and abroad.

Mamondiong also said that the skills training project would determine the appropriate assistance needed should they decide to open a business or any other income-generating opportunities.

Apart from the free skills training program, the OFWs would also be given free assessment and certification which are requirements for employment, TESDA said.

The free skills program is also extended to the immediate family members of OFWs.

Interested applicants may visit the regional, provincial and district offices of TESDA and submit the documents, such referral letter from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), if their names are still not listed on the database of the agency, and passport.

Immediate family members who want to avail of the free skills training program should bring a photocopy of the passport of the returning OFW, letter of authorization from the OFW, and marriage or birth certificate which would prove that they are immediate relatives of the OFW.

TESDA has also created a database for returning OFWs and their immediate family members so that they could be monitored in relation to the skills training program. ###
