Still part of the knowledge-sharing objective of the Bangsamoro Development Agency (BDA) is the ongoing work immersion for senior high school, which started this December 2017.
The eight students taking Accounting, Business and Management (ABM) strand are coming from L.R. Sebastian High School in Cotabato City.
Part of their exposure are lectures and orientation on BDA office and administrative management, topics on Generate Your Business (GYB), coaching on office facility operation, among others.
On December 11, 2017, the student were mobilized during the distribution of used-clothes to poor families living near BDA office in Brgy. Datu Balabaran, Cotabato City.
Fairodz Taalim, class adviser of the students shared that the experience was overwhelming for the learners.
“It was their first time to participate and even help in such activity. It was a mixed feeling of excitement and fulfillment on their part seeing the smiles and words of thanks from the beneficiaries upon receiving the assistance”, Taalim related.
Work immersion is part of the learning program for senior high school under the K-12 system of education in the Philippines. It aims to provide the students a direct exposure of the working environment, which will help them more familiar and effective to their respective jobs, based on the field of specialization they have chosen.
BDA has been catering students from various schools, colleges and universities for their internship and work immersion as part of its objective to become center of knowledge and experience for purpose of research and study.
BDA and the L.R. Sebastian School signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on September 19, 2017 for this partnership for student development.
