The Provincial Government Palawan (PGP) is committed to help graduates of the Palawan Technical Vocational School (PTVS) in Aborlan find income-earning job opportunities for them.
PGP Education Program Chief Orphy Ordinario said around 300 to 500 graduates from PTVS is set to be re-trained by Nippon Technical School, so that they can work in Japan.
Among the jobs up for grabs in the said country are welding, computer programming and various jobs in car manufacturing companies.
Ordinario said the provincial government is closely coordinating with several companies in Japan to encourage them to prioritize getting workers in Palawan.
It can be noted that the first batch of Aborlan tech-voc students graduated last September, while about 2,700 students is set to march this month of November.
Ordinario said the second batch of tech-voc students are also doing well in their studies. The provincial government, he added, believes the good number of students it sent to school will surely land a job after completion of their chosen tech-voc courses.
