CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO - The Tech­ni­cal, Ed­u­ca­tional Skills and Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (Tesda) con­ferred the City of San Fer­nando Pub­lic Em­ploy­ment Ser­vice Of­fice (PESO) with the “Ka­ba­likat” award on Mon­day at city hall.

The Ka­ba­likat award is given to a lo­cal gov­ern­ment unit which man­i­fested re­mark­able per­for­mance in the pro­mo­tion and en­hance­ment of tech­ni­cal ed­u­ca­tion and skills devel­op­ment.

Tesda Provin­cial Di­rec­tor Jaime Castillo stated that the city gov­ern­ment, through its PESO, has in­vested enough funds to im­ple­ment pro­grams and projects for Fer­nandi­nos, mak­ing it the agency’s out­stand­ing part­ner.

“It in­vested al­most P2-mil­lion from 20152017 on skills train­ing schol­ar­ship, Na­tional Cer­tifi­cate II As­sess­ment, and em­ploy­ment fa­cil­i­ta­tion ser­vices such as pro­vi­sion of starter kits and re­fer­ral for wage em­ploy­ment,” Castillo said.

Castillo also shared the city’s ac­com­plish­ment in terms of trained grad­u­ate pro­duc­tion.

“The city also pro­duced more than 500 trained grad­u­ates and 89.45% of these grad­u­ates were as­sisted and mon­i­tored em­ployed,” Castillo added.

For his part, Mayor Ed­win San­ti­ago stated that he is glad the city was named out­stand­ing part­ner of Tesda.

“The PESO has been re­ceiv­ing recog­ni­tions from other gov­ern­ment of­fices, lo­cally and na­tion­ally. Now, we are con­sid­ered as TESDA’s out­stand­ing part­ner. Mean­ing, we are suc­cess­fully mak­ing the lives of Fer­nandi­nos’bet­ter,” he said.

The city’s PESO re­ceived the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion’s Re­gional PAGASA award last year, and was also named as Out­stand­ing PESO Im­ple­menter by the Depart­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment this year.
