CSC, DTI Conduct Entrepreneurial Training to 11 Towns of Catanduanes

An inter-agency program on entrepreneurial development is jointly undertaken by the Catanduanes State Colleges (CSC), through its Extension Services Center, and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

The DTI Region V, through a memorandum of agreement, has enlisted CSC as consultant in this undertaking by providing a pool of lecturers for the series of trainings.

Displaced workers, unemployed college graduates, entrepreneurs, farmers and fisherfolks, members of cooperative and NGOs, RICs and ARCs from the 11 towns of the province are the beneficiaries of this collaborative program.

To date, five municipalities in the province are already covered by this project, with 279 training beneficiaries. Six hundred seventy participants are expected to be trained on starting up a small business

The training module is carried out in a day and consists of lectures, workshop and presentation of outputs.

Topics provided to the participants are basic entrepreneurial skills and competencies, business cycle, processes, risks and opportunities of business operation, and insights in generating a menu of potential businesses or products.

DTI expects that the program will increase and develop the number of new and existing micro-enterprises that are operating profitably and sustainably.

Meanwhile 10 completed faculty researches were presented in the 2009 CSC Annual In-Review of Researches on July 29, 2009. The studies featured in the in-house review were in the field of biodiversity, information and communications technology, social sciences, and science and technology.

The review and evaluation of research and development projects is an annual activity of the CSC in coordination with the Bicol Consortium for Agriculture and Resources Research and Development (BCARRD). This is regularly done to ensure that research activities in agriculture, natural resources, science and technology and social sciences are efficiently and effectively undertaken to generate useful technologies supportive of national development programs.
