The TESDA-accredited SCG Training Center officially opens following an inauguration and ribbon-cutting ceremonies last month in Mariwasa factory. The said training facility is a joint project of Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc. (MSC), the country’s leading tile maker and SCG, one of Southeast Asia’s leading industrial conglomerate and MSC’s parent company.
SCG Training Center is the first of its kind outside SCG’s headquarters in Thailand. The training center aims to develop skills related to construction such as installation of building products such as tiles, roofing, bathroom, wall and ceiling as well as to enhance service skills of SCG and Mariwasa frontilners or sales personnel in dealership. The short training course is TESDA-accredited and will be offered to select contractors, construction workers, specifiers, SCG employees and SCG frontliners. Upon completion of the course, trainees can increase their chances into landing a more rewarding job and enhance the quality of their lives and their families. As part of Mariwasa and SCG’s commitment to social responsibility, the training courses are offered free of charge.
“We believe that education is the key for sustainable growth, especially with the ASEAN integration challenging the productivity fundamentals of the industry sector, this has led our organization to develop the SCG Training Cente , an educational support assistance initiative for all stakeholders we engaged with”, said Mr. Phaskorn Buranawit, SCG Philippines Country Director and President of Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc. during the inauguration ceremony.
Training will begin this month and is expected to impart skills to over 100 trainees before the year ends.
“With our common vision of fostering social development in the Philippines, I hope we continue to bring alternative avenue of developing talents and helping out- of- school youth in our society to learn trade skills we can offer”, added Mr. Buranawit.
The opening of SCG Training is part of multi-activity kick-off celebration of Mariwasa brand’s 50th anniversary in 2016.
