Wednesday, August 1, 2012
YES, there is free training in the sciences – and it comes with free lunch.
Pursuant to Department of Education Memo No. 129, series of 2012, there will be free training for science club advisers , science teachers and enthusiasts for both elementary and high school and all they have to do is make a request.
The free training offer is ongoing from the last week of July 2012 to end of March 2013. It is open to all public and private schools and is under the auspices of the Science Club Advisers Association of the Philippines (SCAAP).
“This is part of our continuing thrust to improve the teaching of sciences in basic education with the hope of producing a new generation of science-oriented learners,” said Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.
The training program aims to continuously revitalize science education pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 28 dated September 4, 1986 and Presidential Proclamation No. 264 dated September 23, 2002. It shall be conducted upon request preferably on Saturdays from 9:00 to 4:00 pm. No registration fee will be collected and free lunch will be served.
The training supports the implementation of the enhanced science education curriculum under the K to 12 Basic Education Reform Program. “This will help strengthen the capabilities of science club advisers and teachers which they will impart to their students,” Luistro added.
K to 12 is a component of the Go Education campaign which seeks to address teachers’ training, education resource gaps and curricular change.
