Panabo grabs provincial Kabalikat award

TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte, Sept. 18 (PIA) – Panabo City was hailed as Davao del Norte’s KABALIKAT awardee as announced on Thursday (Sept. 17) during the 21st anniversary celebration of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) at Kor-Phil Training Center, Davao City.

For the second year in a row, Panabo City was lauded as TESDA’s outstanding partner in the promotion and enhancement of technical vocation education and training (TVET).

Panabo City Public Employment Service Office Manager Cherelle Espinosa said that the institutionalization of City Skills Training, Livelihood and Entrepreneurship Program (CSTEP) in City Ordinance No. 07-14 was the city’s edge in obtaining the award.

“The ordinance, which institutionalized our TVET program, paved way for the increase of the number of TVETs conducted in the city as its budget was also boosted,” Espinosa emphasized.

The PESO manager bared that with the implementation of the CSTEP ordinance, the number of TVETs conducted in a year grew from 2-3 trainings to 15 trainings.

Among the TVETs conducted with TESDA competencies were shielded metal arc wielding (SMAW), dressmaking and housekeeping.

Espinosa stated that the city is eyeing to establish a Training Center to be accredited in the Unified TVET Program Registration and Accreditation System (UPTRAS) of TESDA.

“We are still finalizing the exact location of the center but the city already allocated P 1-million for its initial phase of construction,” she said. (PIA-11/Michael L. Uy)
