TESDA Antique trainees sew face masks for DSWD 6

SAN JOSE, Antique, May 19 (PIA)- - The trainees of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)  in Antique collectively sewed a number of face masks and were turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Region 6.

TESDA Antique Provincial Director Glenn Murphy, in an interview, said that the face masks were made by the students of St. Anthony’s College (SAC), a TESDA-accredited school implementing the qualification of Dressmaking NC II.

“I really thanked SAC for heeding the call of TESDA to support other frontline workers in ways they can such as providing them with face masks sewn by the trainees themselves,” said Murphy. 

A total of 1,070 face masks, which are intended for DSWD frontline workers and the agency's beneficiaries,  were turned over to DSWD 6 through Wesley Angelo Barayuga.

For 2021, TESDA Antique is implementing various programs, both school and community-based, to help Antiqueños earn the knowledge and skills and become competitive in various fields of employment.

Meanwhile, Murphy urged those interested to avail of TESDA programs to visit the accredited schools, Provincial Training Center or TESDA Provincial Office so they will be given proper guidance on how to avail the scholarship programs and free assessment.

For those in remote barangays, TESDA has designated Community Training and Employment Coordinators (CTEC) in every municipality to provide assistance or information to interested Antiqueños. (JBG/psm/PIA-Antique)
