Training for Employment
This program aims to address the education and employment of out-of-school youth. In partnership with Next Generation Technological College(NextGen), KKFI have developed this new program that will allow out-of-school youth, who graduated from high school level but who, because of poverty, could no longer pursue education, whether college or technical-vocational courses.
The training program offers TESDA-accredited courses using Dual Training System (DTS), a training delivery system that involves two venues of learning: the training center where theoretical inputs are given and the industry- based where practical training is held.
The course design is based on the need of the industry partner with the approval of TESDA. After 3-6 months of training at Gilead Centre, the students will be deployed to an industry partner for their practical or on-the-job training where they will receive an allowance equivalent to one month minimum wage of a regular employee.
KKFI will initially provide the amount they need like dormitory and food during the first phase of the training in a form of a soft loan. Once the students start receiving their allowance from the factory, they will be able to pay back the loan in affordable terms.
