CEBU CITY – Democratizing access to higher education and helping students make better-informed choices will allow them achieve their dream careers.
This is the message of Edukasyon.ph Head of Partnerships Daniel Macusi Jr. as they hold the largest education fair in the Visayas region this November.
Students from Grades 10 and 12 can choose the right course and discover education opportunities from various public and private colleges and universities.
The Visayas education fairs will be held in Tacloban on November 09-10 at the Tacloban Convention Center and in Cebu on November 13-17 at the University of Southern Philippines Foundation Gymnasium and Theater.
“Our goal is to help students make an informed decision about their dream career. Both our education fairs and website are designed to serve as a guidance tool to help students map their education pathway leading to their dream careers,” he said.
Over 8,000 Grades 10 and 12 students will join the Tacloban education fair. Meanwhile, over 20,000 Grades 10 and 12 students will attend the Cebu education fair. Both fairs provide a venue for students and parents to discover college courses and career pathways, inquire to schools, colleges, and universities, and apply to these schools using the online platform at www.edukasyon.ph.
“Students not only learn about their opportunities after the senior high program, but also know how they can have the top-quality education that would match their career paths,” Macusi said. “It is important that we are giving the students a chance to have a choice as this would affect their future and our future as a developing country.”
The education fairs were made possible with the help of ASUS Philippines, Netopia, Lazada.com.ph, Shopback, and Chevrolet. Local government units and Department of Education–School Division Offices are also working together with Edukasyon.ph to address the education needs of the students.
“We seek to make education reachable to every Filipino child regardless of their social status. Edukasyon.ph empowers students by giving them all the important education to career information that they need,” Macusi said.
