NAVAL, Biliran – The lady chief of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) in Region 8 sought the help of the municipal and barangay officials in the monitoring on the use of toolkits distributed to training graduates.
No less than Cleta Omega, regional director of TESDA-8 attended the graduation and distribution of national training certificates and toolkits to some 50 graduates of Maripipi town held at the town covered court on Tuesday, June 9.
There were 20 trainees who graduated in preparing and cooking hot meals leading to cookery NC II and 30 trainees who graduated in preparing and cooking cold meals leading to cookery NC II.
Omega appealed to the local government officials of Maripipi town to also help TESDA 8 in monitoring if the distributed toolkits were used by the graduates and see to it that it will not be sold by the beneficiaries because the acquisition is quite hard on the part of the government.
