Labor agency expands internship coverage
by DOLE release

To encourage more individuals to pursue a career in government service, the Department of Labor and Employment has expanded the coverage of the Government Internship Program (GIP).

In Department Order 204-A, s. 2019, Sec. Silvestre Bello III allowed individuals aged 31 years old and above to also apply for the program.

They must have no work experience or with intermittent work experience; laid-off or terminated due to closure of establishments; or displaced due to natural or manmade disasters.

The program may also be extended to victims of armed conflict, rebel returnees, persons with disability, and indigenous peoples.

Previously, the DOLE-GIP is open only to beneficiaries aged 18 to 30 years old. The new qualifications add up to the requirements for GIPs who must have no work experience and at least graduates of high school/senior high school or its equivalent level under the Alternative Learning System, or graduates of a technical-vocational course.

The beneficiaries assist DOLE and its partner agencies in duties that are not highly-technical, such as encoding of registrants in the PESO Employment Information System and profiling of child laborers, PWDs, and senior citizens in concerned barangays.

The internship period shall be for a minimum of three months to a maximum of six months. The salary is equivalent to the minimum wage of the region where the beneficiary is employed.

The intern is also entitled to an insurance coverage, which shall not be deducted from the beneficiary’s allowance, based on the premium agreed by DOLE and the Government Service Insurance System.
