A work immersion program will benefit 3.6K Kapampangan students.

PAMPANGA’S CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – At least 3,600 senior high school students in the area would have the opportunity to gain relevant experience and skills in their chosen industries.

This comes after the City of San Fernando’s Department of Education Schools Division Office (SDO) teamed with the Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (PamCham) for a work immersion program in which Grade 12 students will be sent to real-world enterprises to broaden their skills.

SDO-City of San Fernando education program expert Francis Dominic De Guzman stated on Monday that senior high students would acquire hands-on experience in their chosen field through the work immersion program.

“Hindi mahihirapan ang ating mga paaralan at punong guro na maghanap ng partner institutions para sa work immersion ng ating mga mag-aaral (Our schools and principals would not have difficulty finding partner institutions for our students’ work immersion),” de Guzman stated in a video interview.

He emphasized the necessity of job immersion or training to help senior high school students from the city’s 18 public schools improve their skills.

“Through work immersion, they will improve their technical knowledge and skills, as well as acquire healthy work habits, attitudes, appreciation, and respect for work.” “These equip students for the demands and challenges of job or higher study following graduation,” he said.

Senior high school students will participate in at least 80 hours of work immersion as part of the curriculum.

Lourdes Javier, chairwoman of the PamCham Committee on Education, said her group had more than 600 members from various industries.

“Iba’t-ibang kakayahan ang pwedeng malinang sa ating mga kabataan, sa dami ng mga miyembro ng PamCham.” PamCham has worked with the Department of Education to increase the many skills of our youth through corporate social responsibility (With many members, PamCham can enhance the various talents of our youth.) We worked with DepEd as part of our members’ corporate social responsibility),” Javier explained.

She believes that the senior high school work immersion program provides an excellent basis for students to improve their talents in a workplace setting and broaden their competencies.

“We encourage our members to tailor the work immersion program to the needs of our prospective businesses,” she added.
