Work hard for a good life: Toby Tiangco inspires Navotas tech voc graduates
Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco challenged graduates of the Navotas Vocational Training and Assessment (NAVOTAAS) Institute to use their newly acquired skills to give their families a better life.
In a message to mark the graduates’ milestone, Tiangco said: “It may take a while before we can go back to normal and regain the economic stability we once enjoyed. Nevertheless, you must continue to create the life you want for yourself and your loved ones. Take advantage of the skills you have gained to help your family surpass these trying times.”
Of the 114 graduates of the NAVOTAAS Institute, 36 completed the Japanese Language and Culture I while 12 graduated from the Japanese Language and Culture II program. Fifteen of the graduates, on the other hand, finished Korean Language and Culture I.
Meanwhile, 16 trainees completed and received national certification (NC) II for housekeeping, 15 for food and beverages services, and 20 for barista.
Navotas has four training centers that are open to Navoteño and non- Navoteño trainees. Residents may study at the institute for free while non-residents may enroll and take assessment exams for a fee, depending on the course they will take.
