‘Dual training system’ for college eyed

ANGELES CITY – The local government here is now in coordination with Clark Freeport-based electronics company SMK Corporation to begin the implementation of the ‘dual training system’ (DTS) for the City College of Angeles’ (CCA) market-driven courses for academic year 2013-2014.
“We had early talks with SMK Corporation regarding plans on how we will be able to implement the ‘dual teaching system’ with them. This is very apt for CCA since we have designed our curriculum based on the employment needs of companies inside Clark Freeport,” said CCA President Averell Laquindanum.
Under the DTS, the first two semesters of the students enrolled under the Technical and Vocational Education (TVEd), specifically in Electronics, will be under the premise of CCA for the academic and theoretical domain of the curriculum.
After a year, SMK Electronics will take over the students for the field education. The company will also provide scholarship grants, meal and transportation allowances for qualified students.
“Again, these are initial plans; but if this scheme will push through, it will help a lot since we are raising the competency of the Angeleños in the market,” Laquindanum said.
The dual teaching system is an incorporation of corporate apprenticeship to vocational schooling and is practiced by most technical schools in the Philippines.
DTS’s incorporation to CCA’s curriculum is seen to provide work experiences and learning opportunities outside the classroom to the students of the city college.
Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan, on the other hand, vows to continue the improvement of the educational programs of the city.
“Education is a vital foundation to one heading for a brighter tomorrow. We are very privileged to establish the city college which is a life-long dream of the Angeleños,” Pamintuan said.
“The CCA stands strong as our symbol of hopes and dreams. For the city government, it is a promise fulfilled,” Pamintuan added.
To date, the CCA accommodates a total of 376 students with vocational courses in Computer Science, Information System and Tourism.
In the Academic Year 2013- 2014, the city college eyes to accommodate as much as 1,000 students with the additional four-year bachelor’s degree courses of Computer Science, Information System, Tourism Management, and Technical Teacher’s Education in Physical Education and Food Services.
The CCA will also establish the Institute for Teacher’s Education, Institute for Information Technology, and the Institute for Technical and Vocational Education along with the DTS with private companies.
