Ex-OFWs urged to become TESDA trainers


- Advertisment -

Retiring and returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who gained experiences abroad are being urged by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to become their trainers. 

“’Yung iba pa pong OFW natin na mga expert na, paretiro na o wala nang planong bumalik pa sa ibang bansa, s’yempre they were able to gain expertise abroad, at the same time TESDA graduate naman po sila, hinihikayat namin silang maging trainers para po makapagbigay din tayo ng tulong at livelihood sa ating retiradong OFWs,” TESDA Deputy Director General Aniceto Bertiz III said. 

He added that additional trainers re needed due to the surge in the number of enrollees at TESDA. Currently, the state-run training institution has over 800,000 trainees. 

Around 71,000 OFWs have enrolled in TESDA’s skills training programs since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic until September 13, Bertiz said. 

TESDA is offering over 70 online courses, from electronics to web design, that Filipinos may take while staying at home. 

“Mapapakinabangan po ito lalo na ‘yung mga work-from-home, gustong magkaroon ng extrang kita at siyempre concentration natin ‘yung major priority sectors— agriculture, construction, healthcare pa rin natin ‘yung ating tinututukang programa,” he further added.
