Fernandinos Graduate From JobStart Program [ Tuesday, 18th of August 2015 | 2 years ago ]


Fernandinos who underwent training and seminar from the JobStart Program of the Public Employment Services Office of the city and the Department of Labor and Employment received their diplomas in the first ever graduation rites of the JobStart beneficiaries held at Midas Hotel, Pasay City on August 14.

More than six hundred graduates attended the said program headed by the Department of Labor and Employment together with the four pilot local government units of the program namely Quezon City, Taguig City, General Trias and the City of San Fernando, Pampanga.

The said program was attended by DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, Asian Development Bank Director Kelly Bird, Ambassador of Canada to the Philippines Neil Reeder, House Committee on Labor and Employment Chairman Karlo Alexei Nograles, and over six hundred graduates from the four pilot cities of JobStart.

According to Secretary Baldoz, the Jobstart Program has been a long project of DOLE together with the Asian Development Bank and the government of Canada to help young Filipinos in honing their skills in order to find work and lessen the rate of unemployment in the country.

“Right after completing the Life Skills Training, some were already employed by companies who saw interest in their skills and work attitudes. Considering that this is only the pilot stage, we can see that many employers are already absorbing our JobStart beneficiaries,” said Baldoz.

Over fifty Fernandinos who have completed the complete cycle of the program were given the recognition and diplomas.

The City of San Fernando accepted three hundred sixty participants that underwent Life Skills Training and four hundred sixty two participants were referred for internship.

Meanwhile, according to City Manpower Focal Person Meilyn Gallarde, having these graduates reflects the positive outcome of the program, meeting the expectations set by the Department of Labor and Employment.

“Ang JobStart program ay malaki ang naitutulong sa mga kabataan. Nabibigyan natin ng pagkakataon na sumailalim sila sa mga training para matulungan natin silang maipasok sa mga tamang employer,” said Gallarde.

The City Government of San Fernando, led by Mayor Edwin Santiago is supporting the project of the Department of Labor and Employment together with the help from the Asian Development Bank and the Government of Canada.
