NAGA CITY, Mar. 13 (PIA) – Pursuant to the effective implementation of the K to 12 program, the Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Naga City has invited various stakeholders to the Senior High School Immersion Partnership Forum held Friday at the Avenue Plaza Hotel Convention Center, here.


This is to ensure the successful implementation of its Student Immersion program this school year – DepEd’s work related professional learning opportunities meant to help the students acquire useful skills, knowledge and attitude in the pursuit of their chosen careers. The students, under the said program will have the chance to observe a typical office setting and bring their experiences as a learning tool that they can use in the future.


DepEd Naga OIC Schools Division Superintendent William E. Gando stated that ideally students should aim to gather range of experiences throughout their immersion in the fields of housekeeping, food and beverage, kitchen, events management, media and technical courses and also as front liners in various offices.


“DepEd’s immersion program will provide an opportunity to the students to develop themselves in the workplace in a supervised setting, while also allowing the employer to evaluate their performance and management potential for future possible employment,” Gando added.


Covered by the program are Grades 11 and 12 students who have to complete the 80-hour hands on experience or work simulation reflective to the competencies that should be acquired by the Grade 11 students under the Technical-Vocational and livelihood track.


Invited to sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as initial partners for the SHS Immersion are the city government of Naga headed by Mayor John Bongat, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Provincial Field office through its provincial field officer Ana Christine Soriano, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Provincial Office under the headship of Provincial Director Edna Tejada, Metro Naga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI) represented by President Gilbert Albero and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Camarines Sur Provincial Office represented by its Information Center Manager.


Gando said that the partners will help a lot in incorporating the SHS program of DepEd in their respective advocacies and eventually contribute in the provision of data and information on the current projections of their respective agencies.


Among the secondary schools that will implement the SHS are the Camarines Sur National High School (CSNHS), Concepcion Pequeña National HS, Cararayan NHS, Naga City School of Arts and Trades, Carolina NHS, Naga City Science HS, Leon Q. Miranda HS and Tinago HS. (LSM-PIA5/Camarines Sur)
