In his report on Balitanghali on Thursday, GMA News' JP Soriano said the guidelines for the Japanese government’s Technical Internship Training Program (TITP) have been finalized and are expected to be signed for implementation in September.

POEA deputy administrator Jocelyn Sanchez said applicants should keep an eye out for more job orders coming from POEA-licensed recruitment agencies.

"Mag-abang and mag-prepare na rin 'yung mga tao sa mga documents niya," she said.

The salary under the TITP has yet to be disclosed. However, according to the POEA, care workers in Japan are paid more compared to other Asian and European countries.

The goverment agency said it was possible that the salary would start at no less than P50,000 to P70,000 per month.

The POEA said applicants, apart from finishing a course on caregiving, are not necessarily required to be fluent in Niponggo.

"Pag napili ka, sila 'yung bahala du'n sa...language training fee mo," Sanchez said.

Aside from the TITP, the POEA is also coordinating with the Chinese government regarding 1,000 jobs for Filipino English teachers.

In the mean time, the POEA advised job-seekers to monitor job orders posted on www.poea.gov.ph. and be cautious about bogus recruiters.

“The first recommendation which is expected to be made during the meeting will be to review the civil IDs of all registered bachelors in the private and model housing areas. No ID will be renewed unless the address is changed. This is in addition to preventing the registration of any new lease on behalf of any bachelor and landlords who do not abide by the instructions will be referred to the Public Prosecution, the source said.

The source pointed out the service centers in the country complain about the deterioration of infrastructure, and negative effects on the power plants and the tremendous pressure on the sewage system. This is in addition to the deterioration of the streets, the accumulation of waste in front of homes because of the large number of bachelors in the private and model housing areas.

The source stressed on the need to punish the bachelors who violate the law through the imposition of financial fines. This means need to increase inspections and it is the duty of the security authorities to act and evict bachelors from private and model housing areas.

The source stressed on the importance of forming an integrated team comprising members from all concerned parties and not only the Kuwait Municipality emergency teams, whose role is to take immediate action, either by cutting off power supply or refer the individuals to the security authorities for appropriate action.

According to recent statistics released by the Civil Service Commission (CSC), 57,500 Kuwaitis work for the government sector (teaching, education and training jobs) compared to about 26,000 non-Kuwaitis who do the the same jobs, reports Al- Qabas daily.

In terms of non-Kuwaitis in the government sector, education, teaching and training services they rank first, followed by medical and health services.
