643 Kapampangans complete the SLA program

ESL is a parallel learning system in the Philippines that provides a convenient option to existing formal education.

If a learner cannot access formal education in schools, ESL is an alternative or substitute.

ALS includes both non-formal and informal sources of knowledge and skills.

Vice Governor Lilia Pineda reminded ALS graduates to continue their studies at university or take vocational training programs from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Provincial Center training of the Capitol’s workforce to obtain better employment opportunities.

ESL recipients are mostly out-of-school children in special cases who are of official school age (5 to 17-18) but are not enrolled in elementary or secondary schools due to special cases such as economic, geographical, political, cultural. , or social barriers.

These also include learners with or with disabilities, indigenous peoples, children in conflict with the law, learners in emergencies and other marginalized sectors.

With the help of staff from the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, the Provincial Treasurer’s Office and the General Service Office, each beneficiary received a cash gift and food parcels.

Governor Dennis Pineda said this is how the provincial government recognizes student achievement.

Fritzie David Dizon and Sajid Khan Eusoof, Mayor of Guagua Anthony Joseph Torres, Vice Mayor of Guagua Jun Lim, Provincial Librarian Jasmine Cordero, Director of PESO Luningning Vergara and TESDA officials assisted the Vice Governor during the event.
