August 2014 MMM

For the August Monthly Membership Meeting Professor Tomas Lopez, the President of the University of Makati, talked about what K-12 is and what it means for businesses.

He explained that the lack of K-12 had created a grossly under-qualified labour force, and that its implementation is a step forward to creating more competent workers. He also cited the experience of the University of Makati piloting the K-12 program, with outstanding success of both 11th and 12th Graduates being either successfully employed or pursuing higher education.

He also notes the private sector has in contributing to K-12’s success in terms of OJT opportunities, knowledge-sharing, and consultation.
