Santa Maria gets P16.8M for skills training
The local government of Santa Maria now has the funds to conduct various skills training sessions to help alternative learning students to earn a living.
Santa Maria Mayor Cindy Carolino thanked the Development Academy of the Philippines for providing P16.8 million for the implementation of the Alternative Learning System- Educational Skills Training.
Under the program, ALS learners would be taught skills that they could use to find a job or start a business, said Carolino.
It would be offered not just to Santa Maria residents, but to those from nearby areas as well, she said.
“Sa mga susunod na linggo ay gaganapin na po ang kanilang training na napili – Caregiving NCII, Electronic Installation and Maintenance NCII, Bread and Pastry Production NCII, Shielded Metal Arc Welding NCII with Scaffolding Erection, Organic Agriculture Production NCII, at Housekeeping NCII,” she said on Facebook.
There are some 300 learners under the ALS, and registration is still ongoing.
Santa Maria has also signed a memorandum of agreement with three providers for the training sessions.
