Furthermore, the training workshop was participated in by different GAD trainors from the Philippine State College of Aeronautics (PHILSCA) campuses and TUP system.

The above-mentioned trainings were conceptualized to let the trainors internalize the context of GAD and equip them with technical training skills for gender mainstreaming in order to become effective GAD trainors and advocates.
