Gokongwei Brothers Foundation (GBF) partnered with Universal Robina Corporation (URC) to offer Iskolar ni Juan scholarships to indigent but deserving high school graduates an opportunity to train practical technical skills under the GBF Technical Courses that are registered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
The qualified scholars undergo a curriculum that combines academic classes and on-the-job training to prepare them to become maintenance technicians or production operators in manufacturing firms. The scholars would then obtain a National Certificate Level II (NC II), provided that he or she passes the competency-based assessment of TESDA.
The program covers all the expenses during the duration of the training which includes their tuition fees, school supplies, uniforms, accommodations, food and transportation allowances. Graduates of the program earn a Certificate of Completion in Mechatronics Servicing or a Certificate of Completion in Instrumentation and Control Servicing and with the increasing demand for skilled workers and the rapid expansion of URC, the company readily offers Iskolar ni Juan graduates jobs after their graduation.
