Sodeyama Training Center Inc. (Formerly Sodeyama Foundation Inc.) is a non-stock private technical-vocational educational institution duly recognized and licensed by the Security and Exchanged Commission with its SEC Accreditation No. A200110596 and was incorporated July 23, 2001.
Every member of the corporation has a positive outlook on helping each Filipino in uplifting or improving their way of living. Thus with this outlook became a mission it became a battle cry for each member of the corporation that Sodeyama Training Center, Inc. will always STAY FOCUSED ON THIS GOAL!
During its early years SODEYAMA TRAINING CENTER, INC. (Formerly Sodeyama Foundation Inc.) was incorporated with a main objective of providing a training system and technology transfer scheme furthermore to acquire a more potential and more practical technology, skills and knowledge and activation of human resources for the purpose of economic advancement of our country the Philippines. Initially the corporation is establish as a Foundation to be part of the TESDA-JITCO Transfer Technology Project.
February 14, 2002 embarks a milestone for the Former SODEYAMA FOUNDATION, INC., the foundation has been chosen by TESDA to be one of its Sending Organization under its TESDA/JITCO Transfer Technology Program. A Sending Organization responsible in monitoring, assisting and assuring the welfare of qualified trainees in Japan. The objective of the scheme is to intensify the training of industry workers through the update and acquisition of new skills and technologies from developed countries like Japan. It also aims to strengthen the cooperation and friendship between Japan and the Philippines.
TESDA/JITCO program is a private arrangement between Japanese and Philippine companies supervised by JITCO in Japan and TESDA in the Philippines. Japanese companies accept trainees through Accepting Organizations, which enters into a training contract with Philippine Sending Organizations. JITCO and TESDA serves as project managers and information focal of their countries. Filipino youths will have the opportunity to undergo training given by Japanese sponsored companies, in various technical fields under JITCO classification and to enhance their technological knowledge in their fields of endeavor, with the help of TESDA locally and counterpart JITCO and some various Cooperatives, Accepting Organization of JITCO.
It was July 5, 2002 with a passion of continuing helping Filipinos the Board of Trustees hereby approved a resolution that will allow the Foundation to have a much greater purpose on helping more Filipinos to uplift their economic and living condition by assisting Japanese descendants to avail their rights and benefits by giving them aid in processing their documents that they may qualify to live and work in Japan. By then on it was the year 2004 where the Former SODEYAMA FOUNDATION INC. embarks another milestone. The foundation’s first descendant was recognized by the Japanese government and was able to gain her rights to live and work in Japan as descendant of a Japanese national. It was on the same year, November 2004 when we have our first batch of Filipino trainees to be dispatched under the TESDA-JITCO STTP Scheme in the field of Construction Scaffolding.
It was the year 2010 where the foundation faces one of its greatest challenges. The Japanese Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act and the Philippines Migrant Worker Act of 1995 also known as RA 8042 was amended thus moving the TESDA-JITCO Project to the management of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) in favor of the new laws. With this the Foundation will not be allowed to deploy Filipino trainees to undergo a training opportunity from Japanese sponsored companies.
But then with a positive outlook and looking all possibilities to further serve Filipinos and to ensure that the commitment given to its Japanese partner companies be fulfilled, the Foundation in partnership with VERDANT MANPOWER MOBILIZATION CENTER, INC. sharing a common vision concluded a memorandum of agreement to team-up for the continuation of facilitating the deployment of Filipino skilled worker under the JITCO Program.
With the said team-up the Foundation was therefore amended its Article of Incorporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission therefore making a huge corporate structure change from being a foundation to a technical-vocational institution offering Basic and Advanced Japanese Language Training Course for individuals who wanted to learn Japanese Language, Culture and Traditions.
As of the year to date SODEYAMA TRAINING CENTER INC. is still focusing on helping Filipino skilled workers to gain more knowledge and uplift their way of living by helping them to be part of the said program in partnership of VERDANT MANPOWER MOBILIZATION CENTER, INC. Since then from the founding of our foundation until being an education institution it became our GOAL and COMMITMENT to help our economy in the long run and will alleviate not only the individual trainees’ standard of living and financial status, but as well as the country’s economic status.
Let us help one another for a successful turn of this opportunity given to us. Sodeyama Training Center Inc., will be and will always be STAYING FOCUSED ON THIS GOAL.
