by BA Recebido

Sorsogon Province (7 August) — Some 400 students studying in the private tekbok (technological-vocational) schools across this province will benefit form the Private Education Student Fund Assistance (PESFA) being implemented by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) provincial office here

Rodolfo Benemerito, TESDA Sorsogon provincial director, stated the program seeks out indigent and deserving students who want to pursue technological-vocational courses after finishing high school to hone their skills to become more productive and competitive not only in the local labor fronts but also overseas.

Benemerito said TESDA, with the assistance of the local government units (LGUs) through the Community Training and Employment Coordinators (CTECs), has already commenced the selection process for qualified applicants.

He added the scholars under the PESFA program may choose from 13 strategic packages offered in some 19 private tekbok schools in the province.

“Since our programs in TESDA are multi-entry programs, training classes may start anytime of the year as long as the minimum number of scholars required is met,” he noted.

Benemerito further calls on and encourages qualified students grab this opportunity offered by the government to help the poor communities allotting some P3.6 million to finance the scholarship of deserving locals.

TESDA Sorsogon, meanwhile, has announced the Ladderized Education Program (LEP) Scholarship will soon be implemented in the province targeting some 70 students who are already enrolled in the ladderized courses at the Sorsogon State College (SSC) and Aemilianum College, Inc. (ACI), both located in Sorsogon City.

Meanwhile, TESDA Sorsogon was given a total of 2,652 scholarship slots with P24M budget for this year’s Pangulong Gloria Scholarship Program (PGSP).

Mariglo M. Makabuhay, TESDA-PGSP provincial coordinator, said scholars may opt from the 50 technical-vocational courses or special packages offered in various accredited private and public schools in the province.

She averred that since the PGSP’s implemented this year, TESDA has already recorded a total of 1,454 graduates, including the five overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who now have jobs overseas.

“We are presently gathering data from TESDA accredited schools and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to find out the extent of success among our graduates, furthermore, as bases for the PGSP second phase of implementation in the province,” she said. (PIA Sorsogon)
