Industrial labour opportunities: Vocational skills training-cum-production with the Provincial Government of Cebu

The magnitude of Super Typhoon Haiyan’s (Yolanda) destruction meant that the amount of reconstruction work required, remained enormous even months after the typhoon struck. The increased demand for skilled workers, including welders, was an opportune situation for the affected labour force to find employment.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) partnered with the Provincial Government of Cebu, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and 14 municipal local government units (MLGUs) in implementing a welding training project called “I LOVE WELDING: Vocational Skills Training-cum-Production”.
