DepEd to prepare career path of sports-oriented students
The Department of Education will conduct a training workshop for teachers to guide sports-oriented students in choosing sports as the entry point to the world of work or to higher education in keeping with the goal of K to 12.
The training-workshop will be divided into two concepts, options in the world of work and options in higher education. It will also feature discussions on sports ethics, sports marketing, and sports psychology.
The Special Program on Sports (SPS), in line with the spirit of K to 12, seeks to broaden the range of opportunities for students. They can either choose to pursue a college degree related to sports or pursue jobs like community coaching, apprenticeship or physical fitness instructors.
Education chief Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC stressed that the workshop is in line with the goals of K to 12 which is to provide all learners with various options based on their skills and inclinations. “By orienting our students and teachers with the different fields related to the Special Program on Sports, they will be fully equipped with knowledge and processes that can be readily applied to their future careers.”
Included in the training is a lecture that focuses on integrating the SPS curriculum standards to the K to 12 basic education program. It will also serve as an avenue for teachers to acquire new competencies in integrating sports in various aspects in school.
The training-workshop will be held on October 22-26, 2012 at Teachers Camp, Baguio City. It will be participated in by regional sports supervisors, division sports coordinators, school heads and teachers of 17 SPS lead schools, heads and teachers of schools implementing SPS, and those who are interested in implementing the SPS program.
