THE local government unit (LGU) of Mabalacat is set to establish its skills training center as part of its livelihood and employment program.
Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) head Jaime Castillo announced this during the recent graduation rites of more than
200 students in various technical courses like baking and pastry, bartending, barista, foreign language, and housekeeping from this city.
The Tesda official assured that the agency provides funds to LGUs and entities implementing skills training program.
