4th Batch of Japan-bound Nurses and Caregivers

to Undergo Preparatory Japanese Language Training





On January 27, 2012, Japanese Ambassador Toshinao Urabe attended the Opening Ceremony of the Preparatory Japanese Language Training for Candidate Nurses and Caregivers bound for Japan at the TESDA Head Office in Taguig City. Other attendees include d TESDA Deputy Director General Milagros Dawa Hernandez and POEA Deputy Administrator Viveca C. Catalig.


This training is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the governments of Japan and the Philippines that have provided Japanese language instructors and training venues respectively. This endeavor goes beyond their standing commitments in the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) and aims to further assist Filipino candidate nurses and caregivers in passing the Japanese Licensure Examinations after they enter and work in Japan.


Filipino candidates from the 4th Batch of Candidate Nurses and Caregivers to Japan will undergo preparatory training from January 27 to April 26, 2012 here in the Philippines. They will then depart for Japan in the early part of May and undergo six months of Japanese language training there. - END-
