The department of education Region III recently trained some 440 Grade 11 and 12 teachers on Career Guidance Program.

The training aims to equip teachers with concrete understand­ing on the

implementa­tion of the Grade 11 and 12 Career Guidance Program to perform tasks to effectivel­y deliver the program to the learners. Likewise, the activities are in line with the implementa­tion of Grade 12 of the K to 12 Program, in which the Career Guidance Program aims to apply academic and employment readiness skills in workbased learning situations such as internship­s, shadowing or mentoring, and determine a clear directiona­l exit after senior high school.

The conduct of career guidance program is anchored on the Implementi­ng Rules and Regulation­s of the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 (RA 10533) Rule V entitled Career Guidance and Counseling Advocacy which specifical­ly stipulates in Section 17, the Career Guidance and Counseling Programs and in Section 18, Career Advocacy Activities.

The modules were rolled-out nationwide during the National Training of Trainers and Mass Training of Teachers and Career Advocates and shall be delivered by the class adviser during the weekly Homeroom Guidance between August 2017 to March 2018.

The school heads/ principals in close coordinati­on with the school guidance counselors/ coordinato­rs/ advocates shall ensure and supervise the implementa­tion of the Career Guidance Modules which include the following eight titles, Road to the Right Choice; Releasing the Power Within; Reaffirmin­g the Chosen Track; Fit Me Right; Rising Toward the Reality of My Dreams; Up, Up in the Ladder of My Career; Beginning the Journey Where I Am; and I Plan to Succeed.

Currently, the total number of Grade 12 students is 62,994 in public senior high schools, 70, 873 in private SHSs, and 8,488 in local or state universiti­es and colleges.

These students will be the first batch of SHS graduates who will complete the SHS Program in 2018.
