BAGUIO CITY -- The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority  has set 30,000 slots of scholarship grant for Cordillera  Administrative Region that can be availed of starting this November.
 Secretary Guiling Mamondiong announced this during the recent Tapatan Sa TESDA at New Town Plaza Hotel here.
The scholarship grant is in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s thrust to increase employment opportunities and open entrepreneurial undertakings.
The scholarship will be inclusive or open to anybody.
Tech – voc courses to be opened will depend on industry needs as identified by regional and provincial TESDA offices in the region.
Mamondiong  also presented the administration’s thrust on developing TVET as a driver of poverty reduction, anchored on TESDA’s two pronged strategy – which is using TVET for Global competitiveness and for social equity through productive and world class skilled workforce.
Since appointed as Secretary General of TESDA, Mamondiong has been working for the empowerment of barangays to be a partner in strengthening Technical – Vocational Education and Training of TVET down to the community level under his “Barangay Kasanayan para sa Kabuhayan at Kapayapaan” program.
The program aims to achieve twin goals “kabuhayan” or better income opportunities and better peace and order or “kapayapaan” as  better opportunities in life will lead  people  away from bad vices  or  from lawless actions  just to earn money, he stressed.
Mamondiong said in line with the President’s campaign against illegal drugs, they are working for a drug – free TESDA, both personnel and their learners.
The Tapatan Sa TESDA was attended by more than 300 TVET stakeholders from the different parts of Cordillera. 
TESDA Cordillera regional director Genaro Ibay also presented the regional office’s contribution to the first 100 days of President Duterte.
