106 Navoteños complete tech-voc courses
SOME 106 Navoteños qualified as skilled workers following their completion of technical-vocational education and training at Navotas Vocational Training and Assessment (NAVOTAAS) Institute.
Of this number, 22 graduated from Shielded Metal Arc Welding NC II; 24, Food and Beverage Services NC II; 23, Bread and Pastry Production NC II; six, Tailoring NC II; and seven, Perform Manicure and Pedicure Leading to Beauty Care NC II.
Moreover, 10 trainees finished the Basic Korean Language and Culture, while 14 others completed the Basic Visual Graphic Design course.
“We congratulate all our graduates and commend them for taking the opportunity to upgrade their skills and improve their abilities. We will have more and numerous employment opportunities once our 343-hectare Tanza Airport Support Services have been completed,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.
“Visit our NavotaAs Hanapbuhay Center if you need assistance looking for jobs or starting your own business. We have various programs tailored to helping Navoteños secure gainful employment and sustainable livelihood,” he added.
Navotas has four training centers that are open to Navoteño and non-Navoteño trainees. Residents may study at the institute for free while non-residents may enroll and take assessment exams for a fee, depending on the course they will take.
Congressman John Rey Tiangco, on the other hand, noted that national-funded scholarships like the Training for Work Scholarship Program and Special Training for Employment Program are continuously offered to Navoteño tech-voc trainees.
“Aside from the free courses, eligible trainees can also avail of scholarships that provide allowances and tool kits. We hope that more Navotenos will grab the opportunity to learn and benefit from these programs,” Cong. Tiangco said.
Last month, the city also welcomed 86 new skilled workers who completed various courses at NAVOTAAS Institute.
