LA TRINIDAD, Benguet— The Technical Education and Skill Development Authority Cordillera cannot accommodate all who wish to enroll at their regional training center in nearby Baguio City even if they like to because of limited space of their facilities.
Anthony Oria, regional Tesda information officer bared this during media forum on "OplanvBalikvEskwela" in  this capital town last week, saying  they can only accept a total of 150 students even if the number of enrollees every year reaches up to more than a thousand.
He said most of them enroll in welding and automotive courses.
According to Oria, their regional training center is the smallest training facility of TESDA in the whole country. He said that even the Baguio City School for Arts and Trade (BCSAT) is small to accommodate more students.
He said one factor why they can only accept less number of students is lack of teachers.
He said because of that, they cannot hold one class in the morning and one in the afternoon.
He said if such is possible then they can afford to accommodate more students.
He added they can do it at present if they want to make two classes in a day with the same instructors teaching in those days.
"Ang problema lang dito ay yung magiging quality ng pagtuturo ng mga instructors kasi magiging paulit-ulit na lang yung sasabihin nila magmula sa klase nila sa umaga hanggang sa klase nila sa hapon," (The problem of such is the quality of the teaching methods of the instructors as they will only repeat what they will say in the morning classes in their afternoon classes) he said. He explained that there will be tendencies that their focus and accuracy on their subjects will be affected as it will be repetitious to them.
Oria said he hoped these concerns would be addresses by the incoming administration of incoming president Rodrigo Duterte.

He said TESDA Cordillera will request to the new administration assistance in acquiring more spaces to build additional school buildings and other facilities and hiring of more trainors and instructors.
