Fifty mobile alternative learning system (ALS) teachers from different districts in Negros Occidental completed the English Language Proficiency Training at the Negros Occidental Language and Information Technology Center, recently.
Governor Alfredo Maranon Jr., in his speech during the graduation ceremony held last Sunday at NOLITC, told the mobile teachers that the provincial government is putting more resources to promote quality education.
To narrow the huge gap between the rich and the poor, the governor underscored the need to promote quality education among the youth.
Department of Education Negros Occidental Division Superintendent Anthony Liobet thanked the governor and NOLITC for providing the free training and challenged the mobile teachers to make a difference to every ALS learner and let them graduate with employable skills.
The ALS teachers were trained by Meimei Lonasco, an ESL trainer of NOLITC, for two weeks at NOLITC Suay-Extension Center in Himamaylan City and ALS Community Learning Center in Binalbagan. The recipients of the ELP training were mobile teachers assigned in remote and far-flung areas in the province, with the goal to make education accessible to the out-of-school youth and adults.
“The purpose of the training is to enhance the communication skills and competencies of ALS teachers in Conversational English, considering that a number of ALS graduates have been trained at NOLITC and were already employed in various call center companies”, according to NOLITC Vocational School Administrator, Dr. Ma. Cristina Orbecido.
