TAGUIG CITY – In partnership with the Taguig City Local Government Unit, Aboitiz Foundation, and Department of Education – School Division Office (DepEd-SDO), Edukasyon.ph will close this year’s Metro Manila pocket education fairs in the city that will be attended by over 2,000 graduating senior high students.
The education fair will provide a venue for students and parents to discover college courses and career pathways; inquire to colleges and universities; and apply to these schools using the Edukasyon.ph online platform, www.edukasyon.ph.
“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,” Edukasyon.ph Head of Sales Daniel Macusi said.
“Students not only can learn about their opportunities after the senior high program but also know how they can have a quality education that would get them to an employable job,” 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.”
Additionally, there will be a plenary session that would cater Grade 12 students. The topic that would be discussed is divided into choosing the right college degree; getting hired in a job; and starting a small business enterprise.
Aboitiz Foundation First Vice President and COO Maribeth Marasigan, DepEd Taguig City and Pateros – School Division Superintendent OIC Dr. Romulo Rocena, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Senior Trade & Development Specialist Beverly Jiminea, and Taguig LGU Scholarship and Policy Office Director Rene Lopoz are invited to deliver messages to open the activity. Young professionals are also invited to share their career experiences.
The series of education fairs were made possible with the help of Aboitiz Foundation, ASUS Philippines, Jollibee, Netopia, Lazada.com.ph, Maynilad, Shopback, Jobstreet, Kalibrr, and John Clements. 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.
