P24-BILYON PONDO HIHILINGIN NG TESDA

Hihilingin ng pamunuan ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) na madagdagan ang kanilang pondo sa susunod na taon upang makapagbigay ng skills training sa tinatayang 1.5 milyong Pilipino.

Ayon kay TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong, P24 bilyon ang kanilang kakailanganing pondo upang makapagbigay ng skills training sa mas marami nating kababayan sa taong 2018.

Aniya, posibleng madagdagan ang mga kababayan nating gustong magkaroon ng skills training dahil na rin sa pagbibibay ng prayoridad ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na makalikha ng mas maraming trabaho.

Kabilang sa limang industriya na inaasahang maging patok sa ating bansa sa susunod na taon ay ang health care and wellness, business processing outsourcing, tourism, construction at agriculture.

Dahil dito, inaasahan ni Mamondiong na posibleng dumami ang bilang ng mga gustong magkaroon ng skills training na ipinagkakaloob ng TESDA partikular na sa limang nabanggit na industriya.

Bukod dito, muli na namang bubuksan ng TESDA ang Training for Work Scholarship para sa mga gustong maging caregiver at housekeeping sa mga hotel.

Kabilang pa sa mga plano ni Mamondiong ay ang makapagbigay ng maraming scholarship ang TESDA at matiyak din na makakukuha ang mga ito ng trabaho at maisakatuparan ang emergency skills training para sa mga Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) at iba pang sektor.

Plano din ng TESDA na mapondohan ang modernisasyon ng mga Regional Training Center sa buong bansa upang mas makapagbigay ito ng dekalidad na kasanayan.

Napag-alaman pa na kumpara sa Department of Education (DepEd) at Commission on Higher Education (CHED) ay napakaliit lamang ng budget ng TESDA na umaabot lang sa mahigit na anim na bilyong piso. ###

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) has said that it would be needing P24 billion budget to fund the skills training of 1.5 million Filipinos in 2018.

TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong said that TESDA is expecting a surge in the number of Filipinos who want to avail of the agency’s skills training program as the government prioritizes job opportunities in the country.

Mamondiong said that the industries he foresees to be a hit among Filipinos next year are health care and wellness, business processing outsourcing, tourism, construction and agriculture.

The TESDA chief said that he anticipates a big number of Filipinos who want to enrol in skills training in line with these five popular industries.

Mamondiong also said that TESDA will soon open the Training for Work Scholarship for those who want to become caregivers and housekeepers in hotels.

Other TESDA projects include reinforcing the scholarship program and eventually find jobs for the graduates and come up with emergency skills training for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and other sectors.

Mamondiong said that he is seeking an additional budget for the modernization of regional training centers nationwide.

TESDA officials said that the agency’s budget for 2017 is only P6.9 billion which is lower as compared to the Department of Education (P567 billion) and Commission on Higher Education (P8.3 billion). ###
