TESDA offers professional training for ARBS in Zambales
The Technical Educational and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is set to provide vocational training to dependents of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARB) in Zambales Province.
Emmanuel Aguinaldo, provincial land reform program manager, said on Wednesday that he had met and discussed with TESDA representatives on how to empower children in ARBs, not just in agriculture.
According to a report by the Philippine News Agency, the partnership between TESDA and the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) aims to provide options for dependents of ARBs.
Aguinaldo said the vocational training to be provided will not only focus on agricultural courses, but also on electronics, practical electricity, driving, welding and housework.
“While we realize that organizational development and strengthening and the agricultural production seminars organized by the DAR are necessary, we must find ways to increase household incomes in the ARB,” he said in the NAP report.
“Vocational training and eventual employment of ARB children will go a long way in breaking the reliance of ARB households on agricultural income alone,” Aguinaldo said in the report.
