PCCI, DePEd-R8 sign MOA for enterprise-based education system
In an effort to continuously improve the skills of Filipino workforce in the country, the PCCI, through its human resources development arm, the PCCI Human Resources Development Foundation (PCCI HRDF) and the Department of Education (DEPED) Region8 signed a Memorandum of Agreement to implement a Dual Education and Training (DET) Program in Hotel and Services Qualification in Leyte. The program will use the DET approach where students are trained both in school and company. It is a combination of practical, on-the-job, enterprise-based training, and theoretical education, which has proven to be effective in securing employment in developed countries like Germany. The program will be implemented together with the DEPED Region 8, the PCCI HRDF, PCCI Tacloban-Leyte Inc, Easter Visayas Tourism Association (EVTA). and the various municipalities and Senior High Schools in Karigara, Dulag, Palo, Alang-Alang, and Tanauan, Leyte.
