400 complete special skills training

FOUR hundred scholars completed the Special Training and Employment Program (STEP) of Technical Education Skills and Development (TESDA) last April 30 at CSI Stadia, Dagupan City.

The graduates have undergone six-months special skills training in dressmaking, welding, cookery and electrical installation.

TESDA Provincial Director Manuel Wong credited the local governments of Malasiqui, Basista and Dagupan City and the Office of Senator Sonny Angara for the successful program that provided free training, tool kits like sewing machines, welding machines and allowances for the STEP scholars.

Angara told the graduates that the training will give them better future, and more confidence to start a new livelihood.

The senator added he is pushing for the passage of the One Family One Scholar Bill that will serve as the counterpart for the DSWD’s 4P’s or Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, to enable poor students to pursue their studies until college. (Nora Dominguez)
