Two members of the Regional Management Team (RMT) have been going around the designated Local Resource Institutes (LRIs) in Region 6, to monitor the conduct of the Sangguniang Kabataan Mandatory Training since May 17 until its final run on until May 26, 2018.
DILG R6 Assistant Regional Director Maria Calpiza Sardua, Local Government Capability and Development Division (LGCDD) Chief Roselyn Quintana, Regional SK Focal Person LGOO V April Mae Plazo together and the rest of the RMT members are doing random monitoring activities in 10 partner LRIs to ensure the efficient conduct of the SK Mandatory Training in the region.
The SK Mandatory Training is currently ongoing in Aklan State University (ASU), University of Antique (UA), Capiz State University, University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos (UNO-R), Carlos Hilado Memorial State College, University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) Iloilo City and Miag-ao Campus, Central Philippine University (CPU), University of San Agustin (USA), Iloilo Science and Technology University and West Visayas State University (WVSU).
These partner LRIs are catering more than 31,000 participants from the 4,051 barangays of Region 6 consisting of eight (8) SK participants per barangay. The training is conducted simultaneously in 9 days, with 120-130 participants per batch. The training will run for one day covering three modules. Module 1 will cover Decentralization, Local Governance, SK History and its Salient Features; Module 2: Meetings and Resolutions, Planning & Budgeting; and Module 3: Code of Conduct & Ethical Standards for Public Official and Employees.
Meanwhile, non-attendance to the SK Mandatory Training without any valid reason will be a sufficient ground to disqualify SK officials or subject them to disciplinary actions as provided in the SK Reform Act of 2015 (RA 10742). However, in the first run of the SK Mandatory Training, those who failed to attend with valid reasons shall submit a written request to the local training management team of the concerned LGU for a special training. The special training will not go beyond June 30, 2018. Only SK officials that have completed the mandatory training can assume their post.
The DILG and the National Youth Commission (NYC) partnered with the Regional Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas (LnB), Regional League of the Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP), and City and Provincial Governments through their Local Youth Development Officers (LYDOs). -LGOO II Judy Mae T.
