TADIAN, Mountain Province – Some individuals who acquired skills through the various training programs of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) organized themselves into a formidable organization to undergo the required Nihongo language training for their gainful employed in Japan in the coming months.
The group of skilled workers decided to raise the resources as their counterpart for them to avail of the 4 to 5 months Nihongo language training provided by Manila-based language teachers in preparation for their scheduled interviews by their prospective Japanese employers for their possible deployment to their expected work in Japan.
This initiative is being undertaken through the Join Us for Progress (JUP): Jobs, Jobs, Job Program of the Dominguez family for more than 3 years, the Manila-based Philippine Human Resource Global Information Center (PHGIC) and the TESDA to ensure that skilled workers who are able to acquire their certificates of competencies can be gainfully employed overseas, particularly in Japan.
Earlier, some 80 skilled workers from the different parts of the province started their Nihongo language training with the full support from the TESDA Mountain Province with a good number of them already interviewed and met with their prospective Japanese employers in preparation for their deployment after having completed the required language course.
The Tadian group of skilled workers will be starting their Nihongo language training by the third week of June with their own resources and support from the local officials while the language trainer will be provided by the PHGIC and the Dominguez family.
According to some members of the group, they raised the needed resources for their Nihongo language training to ensure their deployment to Japan in the next several months which should can be also done by other similarly-situated skilled workers in other municipalities to organize themselves.
For the past 3 years, dozens of skilled workers, mostly caregivers, were deployed in Japan through this program.
The Dominguez family commended the efforts of the Tadian group for their self-reliant initiative to support their language training as part of ensuring their gainful employment by taking the required Nihongo language training to allow them to communicate with their future Japanese employers.
Many individuals who complete their skills training under the TESDA are now flocking to the said office to inquire how to avail of this program to explore possible job openings.
