TADIAN, Mountain Province Some one hundred fifty residents from the different parts of the province are now undergoing the Nihongo language training as a requisite for their deployment in Japan as overseas workers in various fields.
Clark Dexter Badaran, president of the Manila-based Philippine Human Resource Global Information Center (PHGIC), stated that 15 farmers who are among those undergoing the language trainings being conducted in the municipality and in nearby Sabangan town will be deployed to their work in the next 4 months while the rest are awaiting the completion of their training and the preference of their prospective employers.
He added that 11 farmers are from the ongoing Nihongo language training in Sabangan while the four others will come from the newly opened language training in the locality which was a product of the ‘bayanihan’ among concerned individuals to help their townmates land gainful jobs in Japan.
The PHGIC official claimed that those undergoing the training will be deployed for the jobs that have been made available by their prospective Japanese employers where the groups’ activity is covered by the required special recruitment activity (SRA) from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
The recruitment of qualified residents for jobs in Japan is being done by the PHGIC in close coordination with the Dominguez family through the Join Us for Progress: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs program which had been going on over the past 3 years.
Badaran commended the responsible individuals from Tadian who volunteered their time,
effort and resources just to establish the venue for the said training to cater to the increasing number of individuals wanting to avail of the program to help them cope up with the serious negative impact of the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic to the employment and economic activities of the people.
According to him, a native of Bauko is set to leave the country within the week to serve as a plywood maker in a manufacturing company in Japan which is a clear testament that the recruitment being done is legitimate to negate the bad perception being depicted by some quarters on the real purpose of the program.
Badaran stipulated that the PHGIC is regulating the number of trainees attending the language classes in Tadian and Sabangan so that the group will not be overwhelmed and to ensure that the trainees who can complete the Nihongo language training will first be deployed for their work in Japan before a new batch of trainees will be accommodated.
The PHGIC brought to the province several Japanese employers who personally interviewed their prospective employees who are part of the trainees undergoing the language training, a proof of the legitimacy of the Dominguez family program and not just lip service.
He disclosed1 there will be another batch of employees who will be travelling to Manila anytime to meet with their prospective Japanese employers for initial interviews while awaiting the completion of their training to pave the way for their future deployment.
