Deceptive scheme' of some schools

POEA Administrator Jennifer Manalili  warned applicants about the deceptive scheme of some training and learning schools. These schools, she said, target mostly nurses, healthcare professionals and students who are required to finish their course in the said school then given promises that their school will facilitate their employment abroad.

Another is the trainee-worker scheme, where workers are recruited and deployed as trainees based on an agreement, even as training and learning schools are not licensed to recruit workers for overseas employment.

Manalili also reminded applicants that UK restricts the charging of any placement to persons seeking employment. She further stressed that all interested jobseekers should ckech the veracity of employment opportunities abroad through the POEA website.

According to the POEA, the Middle East remains the major labor market for overseas Filipino workers in 2010 as the financial crunch has minimally affected the economies in the region except for Dubai. Press release
