Le F-OMD aide 2.000 jeunes philippins défavorisés à trouver du travail


TESDA, ILO tap 2,000 scholars from poorest provinces

TAGUIG CITY, Oct. 21 --A total of 2,000 youths from four of the country's poorest provinces will have the chance to move from idleness into the world of work.

In store for them are free training on the course of their choice, stipend and opportunities for employment or a business of their own under the joint program of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Dubbed as “Alternatives to Migration: Decent Jobs for Filipino Youth,” a labor market-responsive technical vocational skills training for disadvantaged youth, the program is expected to benefit 500 youth each from the provinces of Masbate, Antique, Agusan del Sur and Maguindanao.

The first batch of 940 youths has been training since September, and the second batch is being readied for this month.

After the classroom sessions, the students will undergo hands-on on-the-job-training with select companies through an apprenticeship program. They are expected to complete the program on or before end of May 2012.

“Jobs and the urgent need to provide them are high in the priority list in the government's development agenda in the Philippines as it is the same case in other countries where youth employment scenarios are near-crisis level,” TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva said.
