PIA Press Release

Albay unveils literacy cum livelihood program

by MA Loterte

Legazpi City (4 February) -- Jail workers and teachers, especially those who are still awaiting for their assignments, would now have opportunity to make use of their time in the literacy cum livelihood program offered by the Provincial Government of Albay.

Emily Kare, Albay Millennium Development Goal Office (AMDGO) coordinator for Albay, averred the provincial government will hold a Basic Training for Instructional Managers on the Delivery and Implementation of Alternative Literacy System (ALS) on February 8-12, 2010 for qualified jail guards and teacher.

Kare explained that applicants who would complete the five-day trainors' training will then undergo accreditation, equivalency and skills training.

She said that teachers will handle literacy class, under the supervision of the Department of Education (DepEd) Albay division office, in remote barangays of Jovellar, Camalig, Manito, Guinobatan Daraga and Sto. Domingo towns.

Teachers will also cater to out of school youth (OSY) and the underserved, unprivileged, poor but deserving learners and residents of far flung areas in the province.

Jail guards-turned-educators, on the other hand, will handle classes inside the jail using ALS curricula," Kare added.

"For inmates serving their penitentiary court decisions, they were totally deprived of their privilege to access education resulting to physical, emotional and social traumatic stress," she noted.

Kare also said the provincial government has tied up with the DepEd, Anislag ALS Community Learning Center, Daraga Municipal Government, and Bureau of Jail and Management (BJM) regional office for the implementation of the program.

DepEd, according to Kare, has already deployed some 2,000 ALS district coordinators and almost 1,000 mobile teachers nationwide to handle the same program to minimize and eradicate illiteracy in the country. (PIA V) [top]
