TESDA pushes for further expansion of services in Soccsksargen

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority is pushing to make its programs and services more accessible to those in the lower strata of society and those in remote areas to help raise their standard of living through skills training.

This after TESDA formally received the donation of a 1,027 square meter lot by the City Government of Koronadal on which the new TESDA Regional Office XII will be built. The lot is within the Prime Regional Center on which several other government agencies are either already holding their regional offices or are planned to be located.

TESDA Director General, Secretary Isidro S. Lapeña, and Koronadal City Mayor, Dr. Peter B. Miguel, formally signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) and Deed of Donation (DOD) for the lot in Brgy. Carpenter Hill, Koronadal City in South Cotabato, for the mentioned project.

The signing ceremony was held at the FB Hotel in Koronadal City last January 10, 2019.

The project is worth some Php 50M and will be completed within 18 months from the time the MOA and DOD had been signed.

“The establishment of this Prime Regional Center of Region Xll will be a testament to the continuing cooperation between national and local government agencies and units, as well as to the trust of the Duterte Administration for a government that is truly for the people. This will likewise strengthen partnerships between public entities and private companies,” said Lapeña in his message during the ceremony.

According to Lapeña, once the facility has been constructed and becomes fully-operational, TESDA will have a better chance to provide services to those who most need them, specially to those coming from communities in Mindanao.

The signing of the MOA and DOD was done as the Koronadal City was also celebrating the 19th “Hinugyaw Festival” and the city’s 79th founding anniversary. The singing ceremony was witnessed by TESDA Regional Director Rafael Abrogar ll and Koronadal City Administrator Cyrus Jose Urbano.

Lapeña also thanked the people and the City of Koronadal represented by its Mayor Miguel.

The Secretary also mentioned that the construction of the Regional Office 12 is part of the projects that will be undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) for 2019.

The TESDA chief likewise mentioned that he personally requested, during an earlier cabinet meeting in Malacañang, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar to include in 2019 the construction of the mentioned Regional Office who immediately approved the project.

According to Lapeña, Villar agreed that the Regional Office, once completed, would bring TESDA’s programs and services even closer to those who wish to avail them.

“Kung walang pamasahe ang iba nating mga kababayan, maiisip pa ba nila ang mag-training o mag-aral para maiangat ang kanilang sarili?” asked Lapeña during his message.

In the meantime, two more world class TESDA training centers are expected to be built in Soccsksargen within 2019, specifically in Sarangani and South Cotabato.

These training centers will benefit some 20,000 trainees in the next 5 years.

Aniya, kung maitatayo na ang nasabing Regional Office ay mapapalapit na ito sa mga kababayan nating gustong mag-avail ng iba’t ibang serbisyo at programa ng ahensiya.
