Aliping Announces Sholarships for TESDA Programs
June 20, 2015
BAGUIO Rep. Nicasio M. Aliping Jr. has announced the opening of scholarship slots for Baguio residents who want to pursue a technical course.
Aliping said the Training for Work Scholarship Program (TSWP) was once again opened by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to qualified Baguio residents in order to allow those technically inclined and immediately begin to earn a living.
“The TWSP is a program of TESDA which allows students to learn a highly marketable skill in less than a year. After the training, the student can already be employed here or abroad because these trainings come with National Certification (NC) ratings,” Rep. Aliping explained.
To qualify for the scholarship, applicants must be at least 18 years old, at least high school graduate, and have not availed of any TESDA, Private Education Student Financial Assistance (PESFA), or other TESDA scholarship from 2006 to 2014, Rep. Aliping added.
An endorsement letter from the Office of Congressman Aliping is also needed in order to qualify. Slots are limited so applicants will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.
Available trainings this quarter are for slaughtering operation with a NC II rating to be administered by the MMS Development Training Center located at the ground floor of the CAP Building at the Post Office Loop.
