THE Technical Education and Skills Development (Tesda) in Negros Occidental Director RomeliaNuezca met with Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson on Monday, November 15, to present the agency’s “Tulong Trabaho Scholarship Program” (TTSP).

The scholarship program was established through Republic Act 11230. It aims to primarily address unemployment and job-skill mismatch through the delivery of Selected Training Programs (STPs) to qualified recipients.

The TTSP seeks to address the immediate skill needs of the Filipino people, especially those who are greatly affected by the pandemic.

The beneficiaries of the program are displaced workers, repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), out-of-school youths, and employed individuals who need upskilling to expand their capabilities and opportunities at work.

They will undergo training programs implemented by accredited Technical Vocational Institutions.

The said program covers sectors that are considered “key employment generators” or priority sectors identified in the National Technical Education and Skills Development Plan that include agriculture, fishery and forestry, tourism, construction, ICT and IT business process management, transportation and logistics, manufacturing, and health and wellness.
