2 Kalinga colleges opt for ladderized education

by Gigi Dumallig

TABUK, Kalinga (30 October) -- Two of the largest colleges in the province have opted to ladderize selected courses in their institutions.

According to Technical Educational Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Provincial Director Julie Ann Banganan, St. Louis College of Bulanao (SLCB) and Kalinga Apayao State College (KASC) chose to ladderize their Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) and Bachelor of Agricultural Technology(BAT) courses respectively.

In the case of SLCB, its technical vocational courses which are Computer Science and Computer Programming are now embedded in the BSIT course pursuing the national qualifications of Personal Computer Operator (PC Operations NC II); Hardware Servicing NC II and Programmer NC IV in the first third years of the BSIT course.

KASC, on the other hand, wants to embed in its BAT course the national qualifications of PC Operations NC II, Horticulture NC II, Agricultural Crops NC I and Horticulture NC II in its four-year BAT curricular offering.

Banganan said ladderized education harmonizes the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) and Commission on Higher Education Department (CHED) components of a tertiary education allowing a person to progress between technical vocational and college degree programs.

"With ladderized education, one is allowed to acquire work-related skills and competencies that will empower an individual to land for a job, earn, save enough money to finance one's college education", Banganan stressed.

Through Executive Order 358 which was promulgated by President Gloria Macapagal-Arrroyo on September 15, 2004, the following disciplines are approved for the implementation of the ladderized curriculum. For the year 2006, these are Hotel and Restaurant Management, Tourism, Information Computer Technology Engineering, Maritime, Education, Health, Agriculture and Criminology. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
