TACLOBAN CITY- Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Director General Guiling Mamondiong announced the opening of 10,000 scholarship grants for the region.
To avail the scholarship grants, applicants must go to their respective barangay officials, Mamondiong said during her speech at the recently-held regional consultation with government agencies and private sector at the Eastern Visayas State University, this city.
TESDA had already sent letters to barangay officials for them to submit the names of their constituents that need skills training.
“There is a possibility that in the submission of nominees, those who did not support their barangay officials will not be listed so we also made the application form available online so groups can nominate them,” Sec. Mamondiong explained.
Applicants may also apply directly at their offices, he said.
Providing skills to unskilled individuals will lead them to land better jobs which could also result to decline of crime incidents to include being hooked to illegal drugs, the TESDA chief added. (ROEL T. AMAZONA)
