FTW (Flexible Training for Work)

 

Ano ang FTW?


Ang FTW o Flexible Training for Work ay isang s kills training program ng Philippine Business for Education (PBEd) at ng United States Agency for International Development (USAID) na nagbibigay ng libreng online mentoring, technical-vocational learning or training, on-the-job training, at oportunidad na makapagtrabaho sa isang kompanya.




Ano ang mga benefits ng programa?

 2. Bibigyan ang trainee ng mobile internet at load allowance na nagkakahalaga ng PhP 1050 na sapat para sa tatlong buwan. 3. Magpapahiram ang programa ng isang learning device (smartphone or tablet) sa mga walang magamit na device. May pagkatataong mapasaiyo ang nasabing learning device kapag nag-qualify at nakapagsimula ka ng on-the-job training.
 4. Bibigyan ang trainee ng isang YouthWorks PH FTW training kit na may kasamang T-shirt, notebook, pen, at face mask. 5. Magkakaroon ang trainee ng isang mentor na gagabay sa kanya hanggang sa technical-vocation training na parte ng programa. 6.

Libreng access sa online employability modules ng Skills to Succeed (S2S) Academy para matuto ng mga do’s and don’ts sa paghahanap at pagiging matagumpay sa trabaho. 8. May pagkakataong makapag-aral sa isang technical-vocational school (para sa mga lugar na GCQ at pwede na ang face-to-face trainings). 9. Pagkakataong makapag-undergo ng on-the-job training (OJT) sa partner companies ng PBEd. Makakatanggap ka din ng allowance habang nasa OJT. 10. Magbibigay din ng tulong pinansyal ang programa para sa TESDA assessment at certification. 11. Tutulungan ka ng programang makapag-apply sa trabaho pagkatapos. Magbibigay rin ang FTW ng tulong (financial subsidy) pambayad sa mga dokumento o requirements na kailangan mo sa pagtatrabaho gaya ng NBI clearance, medical certificate, o iba pa. 12. Makakatanggap ang trainee ng tatlong klase ng certificates:


  • Certificate mula sa technical vocational institute o TESDA Online Program

  • Certificate mula sa YouthWorks PH na nagpapatunay na natapos ang core and employability skills AT tech-voc training

  • Certificate mula sa YouthWorks PH na nagpapatunay na natapos ang core and employability skills, tech-voc training, at OJT




Ano naman ang kailangang sagutin ng isang trainee sakaling matanggap sa programa?


Sagot na ng trainee ang kailangan na load sakaling magkulang ang data allocation sa load na ibibigay ng programa, pati na rin ang ibang documents o requirements na hindi matutugunan ng ibibigay na financial subsidy.




Sino ang pwedeng makasali sa programa?


Ang mga kabataang edad 18-30, nakapagtapos ng at least ng high school o Grade 10, at hindi nag-aaral, nagtatrabaho at nagsi-skills training sa panahon ng registration at implementasyon ng programa ay pwedeng mag-sign up. Ang age range ay posibleng magbago depende sa mga patakaran tungkol sa community quarantine. Wala itong entrance exam. Pwede ring sumali ang mga nakapagtapos ng college at kasalukuyang walang trabaho.




Okay lang bang sumali ang may anak na?


Oo. Pwedeng sumali ang may anak na sa programa.




Kailan ito magsisimula?


Ang Phase 1 ng programa ay nagsimula noong July 2020 para sa mga kabataang nakatira sa Greater Manila Area (Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal) at Zamboanga.
Ang Phase 2 naman ay magsisimula sa October 2020 at tatanggap ng mga applicants hanggang March 2021.




Gaano katagal ang programa?


Ang buong programa ay tatagal ng humigit-kumulang 6 na buwan kasama ang 3 buwan na online mentoring at 3-4 na buwan na on-the-job training.




Ilang oras kada araw/linggo ang programa?


Kailangang mag-attend ang trainee ng isang online session na tatagal ng isa hanggang dalawang oras, isang beses sa isang linggo.

Pagkatapos nito ay asynchronous (hindi sabay-sabay) na ang mga sessions sa natitirang mga araw ng linggo kung saan gagawa at magpapasa ang mga trainee ng home tasks at matututo sa mga employability skills modules.

Ang isang trainee ay kailangang gumugol ng at least 8 hours per week (2 hours synchronous + 6 hours asynchronous) para sa sessions ng core skills at employability skills (S2S). Para naman sa technical-vocational learning, kailangan maglaan ang trainee ng at least 4 hours per week (kung full online gamit ang TESDA Online Program). Kung face-to-face ang tech-voc training, ang number of hours ay nakadepende sa training plan na mapagkakasunduan ng PBEd at ng partner school.




Ano ang online mentoring component ng programang ito?


Ang online mentoring ay ang bahagi ng FTW kung saan isang mentor ang i-a-assign sa isang grupo na binubuo ng 15 trainees. Sa online mentoring, gagabayan ng mentor ang trainees na matuto ng iba’t ibang core skills na makakatulong sa paghahanap ng trabaho.

Magkakaroon din ng chance ang mga trainees na magparticipate sa one-on-one mentoring chat isang beses sa isang buwan.




Ano ang technical-vocational training component ng programang ito?


Sa tulong ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) at ng ibang technical-vocational schools, may pagkakataon ang mga trainee na mag-aral ng mga kakayahang tutulong sa kanilang maghanda para sa on-the-job training. Pwede itong gawing online o face-to-face, depende sa kurso.




Ano ang on-the-job training component ng programa?


Pagkatapos ng online mentoring at technical-vocational component, bibigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga trainee na mag-on-the-job training sa isang partner company ng YouthWorks PH. Ito ang parte kung saan aktwal na mai-aaply ng mga trainees ang natutunan nila sa core skills mentoring, employability skills training, at sa tech-voc training.




Pagkatapos ng on-the-job training, anong mangyayari?


Pagkatapos ng programa, tutulungan ka ng YouthWorks PH na mag-apply para sa assessment and certification sa TESDA. Ine-encourage din ng PBEd ang aming mga partner companies na i-absorb ang mga trainees na nagpamalas ng magandang work performance sa OJT. Bukod pa dyan, i-e-endorse din ng PBEd ang mga nakapagtapos ng buong programa sa aming mga partner na Public Employment Service Office (PESO) para matulungang maghanap ng trabaho.




Kailangan ko pa bang mag-training ng technical-vocational kahit may NC II na ako?


Hindi na kailangan hangga’t valid pa ang iyong NC II para sa kahalintulad ng training. Ang NC II ay merong limang (5) taong validity. Kapag expired na, kinakailangan mong magrenew ng NC II sa pamamagitan ng assessment.




Paano ko matatanggap ang aking internet at communication allowance? Magkano?


Ito ay ibibigay sa pamamagitan ng GCash. Mayroong separate na instructions kung paano ka magse-setup ng iyong GCash account. Siguraduhin lamang na sa iyo mismo nakapangalan ang GCash wallet na iyon at hindi sa kung sino man.




Makakatanggap ba ako ng sahod sa in-company training?


Hindi sahod kundi training allowance . Walang employee-employer relationship sa panahon ng iyong OJT dahil ikaw ay isang trainee pa lamang sa bisa ng programang ito. Pero nakipag-ugnayan ang PBEd sa aming partner companies para mabigyan ka ng training allowance na magagamit mo bilang pantustos sa pagkain, pamasahe o ibang gastusin habang ikaw ay nag-o-OJT.




Paano magco-communicate ang mentor at trainee?


Maaaring magka-usap ang mentor at trainees sa pamamagitan ng email, SMS o di kaya ay sa GoPH online platform, web conferencing applications o iba pang social media.




Ano pa ang kailangan kong malaman?


Magkakaroon ng orientation ang mga trainees bago magsimula ang programa. Manatiling nakatutok lamang sa GoPH site at sa Facebook group para sa mga updates.




Sino ang kakausapin ko para sa mga karagdagang tanong?


Pwedeng magpost ng tanong sa inyong Facebook group o itext ang inyong Youth Empowerment and Recruitment Officer sa mga detalyeng ito:
