Abstract

In the correlational study, purposive sampling was used to select the 53 respondents based on a set inclusion criteria. Instrument used by the persons with disability included both demographic and employment profile of the respondents as well as their evaluation on the extensiveness of the training program they had graduated. Data was analyzed through frequency and mean. Results showed that demographic profile of the PWDs showed a mean age of 29.81, 27 were male with the majority having hearing disability (N=29). Employment status showed that only 17 were employed after graduating on the training program. Extensiveness of the training programs was perceived as moderately extensive, non-formal education as moderately extensive, ethics and social responsibility as fairly extensive, worker’s attributes/values and skills training as fairly extensive and workforce readiness and placement training as poorly extensive. Overall extensiveness of the training programs catered by Cavite City showed that the training programs were fairly extensive as perceived by the 53 PWD graduates. The researchers conclude that no significant relationship exists between the extensiveness of the training programs catered by Cavite City and the employment status of PWD graduates as shown by the chi-square test of association.
