By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (1 February) -- The Ladderized Education Program (LEP) of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is one of the priority programs of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo which is being sustained by the Administration.

TESDA Director-General Augusto Syjuco said the government is serious in sustaining LEP which aims to help those who cannot afford to go to college and avail of government's educational opportunities.

Syjuco said TESDA was granted by the Arroyo Administration about P760-million for scholarships last year and that is bound to increase as the President wants to give more scholarships for the poor.

Syjuco said LEP is a system of education in the country that allows learners to progress between Technical-Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and college, vice versa.

The Administration aims to lift the status of vocational courses and make it a jumpstart to ascend to higher job platforms and a chance to get additional college credits.

Tech-Voc courses allows one to get additional college credits and after the Tec-Voc part of education, one can go to college for the lacking units with the money and skills at hand.

TESDA categorizes a graduate of Ladderized Education as having a valuable competitive advantage over those who compete the traditional degree taken in straight four years.

In region eleven, TESDA have started Laderized Education with a number of colleges and universities crediting vocational courses.

TESDA is urging the public to make use of this opportunity when anybody can empower oneself to develop. (PIA) [top]
