SENATOR Christopher “Bong” Go acknowledged the vital role of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority in providing inclusive and top-notch training to help Filipinos gain skills, stressing that vocational education empowers individuals.

“We need more skilled workers in various industries, and I encourage you, graduates, to use your newly acquired skills to help our country’s economy grow,” Go told those who
completed their TESDA programs at the Training Center for Skills and Development Inc. at Queen Rose Building in San Andres, Malate, Manila.

“You are now equipped to contribute to our society and make a positive impact in your respective communities,” he said.

The senator handed out tokens to the graduates.

“Your dedication, hard work, and determination have truly paid off, and you stand as shining examples of the power of education and skill development. Through your commitment, you have not only enhanced your own capabilities but also contributed to the growth and progress of our nation,” he said.

Go has filed Senate Bill 2115 that seeks to institutionalize technical and vocational education and training.
