In its bid to continuously capacitate the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program’s (DILP) focal persons, the Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns (BWSC), through the Workers in the Informal Economy Development Division (WIEDD), spearheaded a training on business planning and project appraisal workshop to be conducted in two batches from April 04-30, 2022.
To ensure that the skills, knowledge, capabilities, and competencies of the DILP focal persons are attuned to the emerging trends, and responsive to the needs of the clients, the BWSC initiated the capacity-building in order to train them in preparing a business plan and appraising a project.
It aims to equip the participants with the necessary knowledge and skills in business planning like understanding the key elements of it, and the critical areas in small business or enterprise management.
The training also intends to provide various methods and techniques in project appraisal, and give knowledge on the strength and weaknesses of a certain project to be able to help eligible beneficiaries identify the kind of undertaking they can start.
From April 04 to 09, 2022, the first batch of participants from the Luzon Group will have their training at Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, while the second batch – composed of the Visayas and Mindanao Group, will be facilitated from April 25 to 30, 2022 in Davao City.
The BWSC will guarantee the continuing capability training for its flagship programs’ focal persons to ensure that its programs are being implemented diligently.
