DepEd-CAR belies K-12 grads lack competency

Mar 24, 2018

BAGUIO CITY – The Department of Education-Cordillera (Deped-CAR) belied claims that grade 12 learners lack the competency to be able to land a job after graduation.
DepEd-CAR regional director May Eclar said under the K to 12 program, learners are provided with enough time to choose a strand and master a skill that would help them college and job ready. The program also provides them entrepreneurial skills to become life ready.
“We admit that we still lack classrooms and equipment for the grade 12 learners. But we do not have any research and information that says our learners luck the competency,” Eclar stressed.
The K to 12 program was criticized during its implementation because of the shortage in class rooms, teachers and equipment.
This month, all K to 12 graduates are required to take the Basic Education Exit Assessment (BEEA) to identify their learning progress and attainment of the learning standards. Deped through its Bureau of Education Assessment (BEA) will administer the BEEA with the help of the schools division’s personnel. The BEEA will be conducted before April 6, 2018.
“TESDA will issue a certificate of competency for our learners, and only then that we can evaluate their capability. But by that time, our senior high school learners would have already acquired almost all the competencies and skills. Helping them as they transition from high school to real life,” Eclar said.
Aside from training in the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), grade 12 learners undertook work immersion to further develop their competencies, work ethic, and values relevant to pursuing higher education and joining the world of work.
During the said immersion, the public, private institutions and organizations were invited to lend their expertise to strengthen the skills and capability of the senior high school learners without monetary obligations.
In the Cordillera, DepEd-CAR expects at least 22, 472 senior high school graduating from grade 12. DIONISIO B. DENNIS / ABN
