Malaybalay City, Bukidnon — The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-X) -Bukidnon Provincial Field Office (Buk PFO) received the plaque of recognition as “Best National Government Agency (NGA) Partner” during the annual Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) awards on 31 August 2022 at Mallberry Suites Business Hotel, Cagayan de Oro City.

DOLE-X Buk PFO Chief Raul Valmores said, “We are elated and honored to receive this recognition from TESDA-X. TESDA has always been one of our strong partners in the delivery of services to our shared clientele. We are grateful for the opportunity to promote and contribute to the Technical-Vocational (Tech-Voc) programs in the region, especially in the province of Bukidnon.”

Likewise, TESDA Bukidnon’s End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) Focal Person Daniel A. Cañete said, “Since 2019, DOLE has implemented several key projects identified by TESDA related to Executive Order No. 70 (or the Institutionalization of the Whole-of-Nation Approach in Attaining Inclusive and Sustainable Peace, Creating a National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict, and Directing the Adoption of a National Peace Framework) to priority barangays. Also, DOLE is an active member of the Provincial Poverty Reduction Livelihood and Employment Cluster (PRLEC) chaired by TESDA.”

Cañete said DOLE Bukidnon was rightfully chosen as ‘best partner’ among other NGAs in Region X because of their significant contributions to TESDA including livelihood grants to TESDA beneficiaries. DOLE and TESDA are also partners in the promotion of employment facilitation thru the conduct of job fairs and referral of parents of child laborers for trainings.

Valmores said DOLE-X has already granted P2,516,703 worth of ELCAC related livelihood projects to 446 beneficiaries from 2019 to 2022, as its contribution to PRLEC, of which, 82 are TESDA trainees and some were former rebels and mass supporters.

The TESDA annual awards gives recognition to partners, stakeholders, and employees for their significant contribution and sterling commitment as the Agency’s partner in the implementation and development of Tech-Voc programs in the region.
