The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority continues to provide support to persons deprived of liberty (PDLs).

Tesda through the Baguio City School of Arts and Trades (BCSAT) trained 30 PDLs and two correctional officers from the Baguio City Jail on Restaurant Services at the Baguio City Jail Multipurpose hall.

BCSAT trainer Bryan E. Agramos taught the participants on table skirting, napkin folding, table appointment arrangement, serving, and bussing out.

The three-day skills training provided the PDLs the opportunity to acquire skills, which they can apply when they are released.

While inside the prison, they may apply the skills during special occasions.

BCSAT Vocational School Administrator Arlene Cadalig lauded the participants for their participation and for completing the training program.

Cadalig encouraged the PDLs to value the skills they learned during their training to improve their lives.

“I hope that you have learned something from the training that you can use for the betterment of your lives. Do not stop learning,” she said.

She also invited PDLs and other stakeholders to avail of the different programs on skills development trainings.

“We have various training that are under the scholarship programs. Please inform your family members, relatives, and friends to avail of the programs provided by the government,” she said. – Redjie Melvic Cawis
