LIVELIHOOD TRAINING IN EAST BAJAC-BAJAC

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. awarded the twenty-two (22) participants of East Bajac-Bajac at the Rizal Triangle Multi Purpose Center on June 23, 2008 with Certificates of Completion for successfully completing the training/seminar in haircutting conducted by the Livelihood and Cooperative Development Office (LCDO).

The five (5) day training/seminar was held in the Brgy. Hall of East Bajac-Bajac from June 16-20, 2008 with the theme ‘Isang Gunting, Isang Suklay’.

“Nakadagdag po sa aming pagkatuto ang mga kompletong equipment sa paggupit na libreng pinagamit ng mga facilitators,” said Ma. Theresa Orio, one of the participants.

Chris Tooley, a professional hairdresser and member of Olongapo’s Hairdressers Association and his assistant Norfa Balor, who graduated from the same training in 2005 trained and guided the participants.

Basic haircutting like barber’s cut, layer hair style and hair trimming were some of skills learned by the participants.

The said training was just one of the many trainings that are being conducted by LCDO in line with the programs of Mayor Gordon to advance the livelihood opportunities for the benefit of the Olongapeños.

“Hindi hadlang ang kahirapan para umangat sa buhay. Sa tulong ng mga skills on the different sources of livelihood na tulad ng haircutting at skills on food processing maaari nang makapagsimula ang ating mga kababayan ng munting negosyo bilang simula ng kanilang pag-asenso,” Mayor Gordon stated.

100 WELDERS NEEDED IN SAUDI ARABIA

The Public Employment Services Office, Olongapo City conduct a screening at FMA Hall this June 18 and 19 at 9:30 am-3pm for 100 welders needed at BIFAL Heavy Industries Ltd. in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

“Ang BIFAL ay isa lamang sa mga companies na may full support at may tiwala sa kalidad ng workers ng Olongapo. It does not only need workers but it also prioritizes employee’s’ rights and welfare once you are hired. Malaking bagay ang tiwala nila for Olongapenos who have welding skills and other crafts,” said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.

BIFAL Heavy Industries Ltd. is one of the largest heavy steels manufacturing company in the Middle East. It has two factories located in Jubail and Yanbu which were both established in 1993.

“Ang kompanya ay accredited ng Philippine Overseas Employment Administration kaya tiyak na ligtas ang mga workers na maha-hire,” said Evelyn Delos Santos, manager of Public Employment Services Office (PESO).

Vacancies in the company include project management, equipment supply, construction works and commissioning of clients.

Workers who have work experience or welding training with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) will have the edge on the screening.

Aside from the interview, the applicants will undergo a trade test or skills test which will be the final basis of selection.

Interested applicants can also apply online at http://www.rrjm.com/ or submit a detailed resume at the PESO office. PAO/don

Human Resource Tracking System


The Human Resources Tracking System was developed in-house by the City of Olongapo. It is the database of all skills training graduates including applicants who wish to benefit from the project. The tracking system is a tool to analyze the training needs depending on requirement of Freeport Locators. It tracks where job applicants are endorsed and the end of their tour of duty in case of contractual workers so that they may be endorsed to our online job matching service, at www.jobs.subicbay.ph or http://olongapo-subic.com/jobs

50,000 Filipino workers needed in Guam

As TESDA, PASEI ink Guam deal

THE Technical Education and Skills Development Authority yesterday signed a memorandum of agreement with the Philippine Association of Service Exporters, Inc. for the training and development of construction workers to Guam.

TESDA Director General Augusto Syjuco and Victor ER Fernandez, PASEI president, were the signatories for the MOA.

Syjuco said the MOA came about after the Guam Contractors Association has announced that construction companies there would need around 50,000 workers over 3-5 years’ time, in anticipation of the construction boom to happen in Guam beginning 2009.

He added the need for construction workers is due to the U.S. military transfer plan from Okinawa, Japan, where there will be around 8,000 marines and 10,000 dependents who will be moving out from Okinawa to Guam.

The GCA can only meet approximately 10 percent to 12 percent of the impending labor force and that the Guam Economic Development and Commerce Authority had announced that it prefers Filipino workers for the anticipated construction boom. Lee Ann P. Ducusin - Journal Online

THE OLONGAPO STORY


Olongapo City had been the host to the US Naval Facilities in Subic Bay since 1901 after the Americans defeated the Spanish Armada in the Battle of Subic Bay.

Olongapo has struggled to develop under harsh circumstances that strengthened its people. It was the last piece of Philippine territory surrendered by the US to the country in 1950s. It rose from a “sin city” in the 1960s and 1970s to become a model city in the 1980s and 1990s.

It survived extreme political reversals, the withdrawal of the bases and the greatest volcanic eruption of the century.

In 1992, the facilities were turned over to the Philippine Government which converted the area into a Freeport Zone by virtue of RA 7227.

Devoid of funding, its people volunteered to protect and preserve the facility, the resulting culture of volunteerism built a hardy and resilient people that remains Olongapo’s most enduring resource.

The skilled manpower requirement created by the freeport was immediately addressed by establishing the Olongapo City Technical Education Center (OCTEC) in coordination with TESDA. OCTEC was converted into a community college in 1999 and is now known as Gordon College.

VISION: Olongapo City is a natural free port, a traditional window of the Philippines to the world, which will be Fast, Friendly, Flexible, Forward-looking, and distinctly Filipino in character.

MISSION: It will be the First full-pledged free port City in the Philippines. It will act as an ENTREPOT, a warehouse, a center for trade, a transhipment point and a marketplace for the adjoining provinces, the Central Luzon areas and the Southeast Asia Region – an easy place to do trade and business

GOALS: To grow service industries, communications, information technology, banking and finance, professional trades, tourism and shipbuilding.

To build a strong support system and strengten manufacturing capabilities and educational, technical, research and development facilities.

The entry of shipbuilding giant HANJIN and return of floating drydocks in the Ship Repair Facilities prompted Olongapo City to establish the Olongapo City Skills Training Center.

Resolution Number 69 series of 2006 was passed Approving the Skills Training Program as a Priority Project of Olongapo City. (Annex A)

This was followed by series of Ordinances, Resolutions, Correspondence, Memorandum of Agreements (MOA) and Executive Orders (EO) to ensure success of the project:

Ordinance 23 s 2006 – Appropriating PHP 500,000.00 in the Skills Training Program

Ordinance 52 s 2006 – Appropriating additional PHP 500,000.00 in the Skills Training Program (Annex C)

Ordinance 32 s 2007 – Appropriating PHP 300,000.00 in the Skills Training Program

BAGUMBAYAN – SIGUE Foundation fund assistance PHP 50,000.00

UNFPA Fund Assistance PHP 100,000.00

PGMA Scholarship for Work SMAW NC II – 75 scholars = PHP 750,000.00

PGMA Scholarship for Work - Call Center Agent Finishing Course
– 75 scholars = PHP 375,000.00 fwd to TVETs

FEDEX phase-out, skills upgrading project – 15 beneficiaries = PHP 150,000.00

Funding from Mayor’s Office for honorarium of trainors = PHP1.44M for 3 yrs

Letter dtd 5 Sep 2007 – Inclusion of Skills Training Budget in 2008 Executive Budget


TOTAL AMOUNT USED FOR TRAINING: PHP 4,165,000.00

* Above amount is from 2006 to present only, funds used since the creation of Olongapo City Technical Education Center (OCTEC) in 1992 which runs into millions of pesos is not reflected in the amount indicated above.

As per latest report of the projects’ accomplishment: 6,651 completed the Shipbuilding Orientation, 4,701 completed SMAW, 285 in SMAW NCII, 525 in FCAW, 4,092 in Career Workshop and Value Formation and 429 in Computer Courses. (Annex H)

From our graduates, 4,092 are now working at Hanjin Shipbuilding Project, 250 at Hanjin Facility Development, 390 at other Freeport Locators and 150 deployed overseas.

A Human Resource Tracking System is being utilized to come up with a real-time and updated status of the City’s Skills Training Program. This is another basis for the beneficiaries’ to avail of the City’s continuous provision of scholarship. The software makes effective the Job Placement Assistance Program of the City (Annex I) on top of the regular Public Employment Service Office of the City.

The Gordon College Board of Trustees in Resolution 29 series of 2007 Approves the Offering of Associate in Shipbuilding Technology Course aimed at giving the Skills Training Graduates a clear career path and qualify for supervisory and managerial positions in the shipyard. (Annex J)

CITY DONATIONS TO THE PROJECT

Aside from appropriating generous amount to the project, additional donations in king was given such as but not limited to welding and personal protective equipments (Annex K), Skills training van (Annex L), automatic cutting machine (Annex M), skills training venues (Annexes N, O, P, Q, R, S, T)

More than 6,651 benefited from the project with maximum number of continuous supprt.

The three on-going Barangay Computer Learning Centers and the Computer Van Aralan recieves continuous Technical Assistance in terms of computer repairs, consultancy service, placement assistance and most specially moral support from the city. The city also extends support to other municipalities and provinces such as San Antonio, Botolan, San Narciso in Zambales, including those provinces from Mindanao where Hanjin will build its next shipyard.

Additional support from the Sanguniang Panlungsod are thru resolutions and ordinances ensuring the success of the training program such as:

Kudos Welders - Shipbuilders

The first ocean-going vessel built entirely in Subic Bay underwent sea trials Tuesday (eight months after the keel was laid in Hanjin's Drydock #5) before being delivered to Greece in June. “Other shipbuilders would have taken at least 18 months after cutting the steel, to launch the same size of ship,” as per SBMA Chaiman Salonga.

This was an emotional moment for trainors since the success of the first ship built by Hanjin here in Subic means that Subic Bay Workers are indeed world class. Skills Training Director Edwin Piano was honored to witness this historic event.
Pyeong Jong Yu, Hanjin’s Outside Business Department manager, said the South Korean shipbuilder has fully completed the ship, a 41,000-ton cargo carrier M/V Argolikos, which has been ordered by the Greek shipping company Dioryx Marine Corp.

The shipbuilder is proud that the first vessel built within the Subic Bay Freeport Zone has undergone sea trials. The ship has already received certifications, including an Attestation Certificate from Bureau Veritas (Ship Surveyors), a Cargo Ship Safety Equipment Certificate, a complete crew list, and a Certificate of Competency of the Korean crew issued by the Busan Regional Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Office.

The ship has a gross weight of 41,000 tons, is 258.9 meters long, 32 meters wide and 19 meters high. Its optimal speed is 24.5 knots.

Five more units are expected to be delivered to Dioryx in the next few years.

Another six ships with individual capacities to carry 4,300 twenty-foot metal containers intended for the NSC Schiffartsgeselhaft of Germany are currently being built in Hanjin local shipyard.

The ship is temporarily identified as PN-001 but will be formally named by President Arroyo in June after sea trials are done. After the naming ceremony, the ship will officially be delivered to Dioryx Maritime Corporation in Greece.

The PN-001 will be the first of the 16 container vessels of similar specifications to be built by Hanjin in Subic. The 16 ships ordered from Hanjin would cost a total of close to $1 billion, with the price of each ship costing $60 million. Undoubtedly a significant contribution to the Philippine economy and a boost to local work force.

Hanjin, which is one of the biggest shipbuilders in the world today, has an investment of about $1.8 billion for its shipyard project in Subic. About 14,000 workers benefited both directly and indirectly from the project.
