P-Noy launches DOLE National Skills Registry System


President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III underscored the importance of the Department of Labor and Employment’s National Skills Registry System (SRS) on Tuesday which he said would help narrow the mismatch between an individual’s skills against current job availability, a common problem experienced by new graduates.

In his speech keynoting the Public Employment Service Office’s 10th National Congress, President Aquino said it is high time the skill and job mismatch problem be addressed by government.

“Nakapanghihinayang po ang maling pananaw ng karamihan: wala daw pong mapasukang trabaho sa Pilipinas. Ang totoo po, napakaraming bakanteng trabaho na nangangailangan ng mga manggagawa," he said

Ang problema, hindi po tumutugma ang kakayahan ng mga aplikante sa trabahong nais nilang pasukan. Panahon na po upang ating tugunan ang suliranin ng “job and skill mismatch (It is sad that the common misconception is that there are no jobs to be found in the Philippines when in truth there is an abundance of vacant jobs that need to be filled.

The problem is that the skill of the prospective applicant does not meet the requirements of their prospective job. It is high time that we address this problem of job and skill mismatch),” the President said.

“Ibig po kasi nitong sabihin, kulang po ang kaalaman ng mga mamamayan tungkol sa mga skill-set na akma upang matanggap sila sa trabaho. Nangangahulugan din po ito na hindi sapat ang impormasyon na nakakalap ng mga negosyante mula sa gobyerno upang maayos nilang mapatakbo ang kanilang industriya.

Nagpapabagal po ito sa ating pag-unlad (It means we do not have the necessary information to train an individual’s skill set to make him or her eligible for a job. This also means that we lack the information to provide our businessmen to help them run their industry efficiently. This is a hindrance to our progress),” he added.

The President pointed out that aside from bridging the job and skill mismatch, the SRS will also be instrumental in the implementation of the government’s Emergency Employment Program which will be re-launched soon.

He said that the EEP will not only focus on emergency work programs and doable and fundable livelihood projects given to citizens in times of crisis but on the improvement of these “temporary jobs” to become permanent job skills within a certain community.

“Kung may ipapatayong imprastraktura sa isang pamayanan, kalahati po sa mga kukunin nilang trabahador at 30 porsiyento ng “skilled” workers na kakailanganin ng contractor ay mangagaling dapat mismo sa komunidad,” he added.

The President noted however that a prospective workforce in a community will not be possible if PESO staff and officials are not attuned to searching for these individuals.

He added that through job matching portals such as the government’s PhilJobNet, information on job vacancies as well as prospective employers will be made available to job seekers nationwide.

President Aquino said he has instructed the DoLE to put up a coordinative system to oversee this program and execute its implementation. (PNA/ PIA ZC).
