TESDA Palawan Provincial Office will be launching the Tsuper Iskolar Program on October 11, 2019, 1:30PM at the Lower Ground Level, SM City Puerto Princesa.
The Tsuper Iskolar Program was established in line with the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that was signed between the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and TESDA covering the implementation of the Stakeholder Support Mechanism Component of the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP) last December 11, 2018.
The Stakeholder Support Mechanism addresses concerns regarding potential social impacts that the project may bring. It also recognizes the need to enable the affected stakeholders and their dependents, to be competent, self-sufficient, and well-equipped with the necessary technical education and skills.
The Program aims to capacitate the stakeholders of the PUVMP through training and development of new training regulations to support the transportation industry.
The Tsuper Iskolar beneficiaries, or those families and their dependents affected by the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program, shall receive free skills training and assessment, daily transportation and food allowance, and free entrepreneurship training (for Cluster of Competencies (CoC) qualifications) to help them better manage the possible effects of the modernization program.
After attending the training programs offered by TESDA and passing the assessment per qualification, the tsuper iskolars will be issued National Certificates to further help them in developing their skills, putting up other businesses, and/ or landing a job after training.
