DepEd transacts with service provider to help ALS learners

The Department of Education-Cordillera has partnered with a job contracting service provider in an efforts to provide Alternative Learning System (ALS) learners and graduates job opportunities and enable them to acquire the necessary skills, attitude, and work values.

DepEd Regional Director May Eclar and JobConWorx Inc.(JCW) Corporate Operations Officer Jean Robelo formalized the partnership with  the signing of  a memorandum of agreement  at the DepEd Baguio Division Office last Jan. 30.

Under the MOA, JCW will help enhance the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and work values of ALS learners and graduate through on-the-job training opportunities and full-time or part-time employment.

JCW Human Resource Manager Jodelle Villanueva explained the importance of the partnership in providing training and job opportunities to young people especially in Baguio where there is a big demand of manpower in the tourism industry.

First to benefit from the partnership is a batch of 150 ALS - Baguio graduates who will be hired for full-time position in two known fast food chains in the city through JCW.

They started their 10-day training on Feb. 1 to be followed by actual work. 

Eclar assured a continuing partnership to ensure the development and betterment of ALS learners not only in Baguio but also in the other provinces of Cordillera.

Meanwhile, ALS-Baguio Supervisor Fernando Eleponga welcomed the partnership with JCW which is a big help to their learners.

The ALS program include skills training such as baking, hair science, welding and electrical, among others. After training they are being linked to take the national certification of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority so that they are ready for work.

ALS learners who pass the accreditation and equivalency exam will earn a diploma equivalent to those who finished DepEd formal school (Junior high school) which is the minimum requirement for job opportunity, or they can continue in senior high school then to college.

Eleponga affirmed the growing demand for ALS education with more than 500 learners in 2016 and up to around 1,000 learners in 2017.
