25 Alicia residents undergo skills training, receive starter kits
ALICIA, Isabela, Aug 8 (PIA) -- Twenty-five unemployed Alicia residents, mostly males, underwent a technical and vocational skills training to become productive residents.
The trainees underwent a 10-day training like welding, hair and make-up, massage therapy, and heavy equipment operation supervised by the local government unit of Alicia.
Alicia mayor Jeng Reyes said the training aims to enhance and nurture the capabilities of the unemployed sector in the locality and turn them to become productive in their selected technical and vocational interests.
Reyes said the primary problem today is unemployment and giving skills training to interested residents is one of the measures to sustain the day-to-day living.
The local government unit of Alicia, in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-Isabela) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda), joined resources to give training and grant free starter kits as initial materials by the beneficiaries.
The starter kits have hair and make up kit, barbers kit, massage starter kits, and such.
The public employment service office of Alicia is accepting another batch of trainees interested to learn skills which will soon be beneficial in their day-to-day living.
The training is jointly conducted and financed by the local government of Alicia in coordination with the labor and employment department, and the Isabela State University (ISU) and the Tesda. (TCB/MGE-PIA 2, Isabela)
