1 S E A M E O N N O T E C H POLCY NOTES Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Center for Educational nnovation and Technology NO Secondary education is at the crossroad of education systems. t is tasked to prepare unprecedented numbers of young people for further learning and sustainable means of livelihood. n the Philippines, far too many young high school students leave high school before earning their diploma. The high school graduation rate is only.% and those who earn their high school diplomas do not possess the necessary knowledge and skills for success in post-secondary education and in the workplace. This underscores the need to strengthen the technical-vocational high schools State of Technical-ocational High Schools in the Philippines in order to bring students into employment and the mainstream of social and economic activities. n these circumstances, SEAMEO NNOTECH conducted a survey to profile Technical and ocational High Schools and identify their enabling and hindering conditions. This report outlines the conditions and recommended key reform agenda to improve learning achievements and investments in the technical-vocational secondary education in the country. SEAMEO NNOTECH Policy Notes are meant to inform policy and decision-makers on new and recent policy-related scholarly research. This study was conducted by the Research Studies Unit in CY 00. State of Technical-ocational High Schools in the Philippines

2 "Education, as we all know, serves as the foundation for sustained economic growth for individuals and the nation as a whole. t is the key to progress." The World Bank (World Bank, Cousing,, Moura Castro, ) reported that technical-vocational education around the world is marked by poor quality, very high cost, training not suited to actual socio-economic conditions, and a disregard in the labor market needs, resulting in the high unemployment rate among graduates. n his State of Education Address in the 00 National Education Congress, Secretary Jesli A. Lapus stressed the importance of education to the economic development of the country. He said, Education, as we all know, serves as the foundation for sustained economic growth for individuals and the nation as a whole. t is the key to progress. He also pointed out the need to provide a solution to the job mismatch in the country (i.e., graduates do not have the skills required by hiring companies). Therefore, there is a crucial need to improve the DepED s TE program to address this need. Secretary Lapus said, Each year, we produce thousands of college graduates who cannot find jobs that fit their skills. n addition, a greater number of Filipino students fail to enter college (many of whom do not even finish high school) so they, too, cannot find jobs even though there are a lot of jobs both here and abroad. Our graduates just do not have the proper skills to qualify for work. Secretary Lapus spearheaded the survey of technical and vocational education high school programs in order to provide intervention mechanisms and strategies. He envisioned a relevant TE program that will match job skills requirements in the workplace. Secretary Lapus further explained, With continuous dialogs and partnership with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), we expect to further improve the country s capacity to provide relevant education to everyone. The DepED, in support of the national government s ultimate goal of alleviating poverty in the country, has been engaging in several projects that aim to enhance our country s TE system. The aspirations of the present DepED Secretary to strengthen technical-vocational high schools is a move to improve the access of secondary education students to an educational program that will uplift them in their socio-economic situations. Established in a two-track secondary school curriculum, the Revised TE curriculum will allow high school graduates to become apprentices in industry and eventually take up gainful employment. As part of the Philippine government s effort to enrich TE in secondary program in the country, the DepED tapped the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Center for Educational nnovation and Technology (SEAMEO NNOTECH) Research Studies Unit (RSU) to conduct a survey on technical-vocational high schools State of Technical-ocational High Schools in the Philippines

4 Survey Findings NPUTS Types of technical-vocational high school by areas of specialization The study revealed that the number of specialization subjects varied, ranging from to TE subjects among TE high schools. The types of technical-vocational high schools showed the underlying competencies and motivations of the schools which helped us analyze their structure and resources. t was found that percent of the total number of technical-vocational high schools in the country specialized in arts and trade. Thirty five () percent specialized in agriculture and percent specialized in fishery. Free Secondary Education Act. n SY 00-0, there were around, technical vocational high school students. The average school enrolment is,0 students per school. The enrolment in TE high schools mainly depended on the number of students that TE schools could accommodate. TE schools that are within or near population and business centers commonly had higher enrolment. The class size or number of students per section ranged from 0 to 0. TE high schools have also started to reduce their number of TE subject students to students to better deliver instruction or training.

5 Curriculum Around % of the technicalvocational high schools reported using the Revised TE Curriculum (RTEC) while % followed the Revised Basic Education Curriculum (RBEC). Some % used a combination of the aforementioned curricula while the remaining % used others (see Figure ). Combined (%) Others (%) RTEC (%) high schools also increased the duration of TE subjects from - hours per day (or - hours per week). RTE specialization subjects were also mandated to be taught for an additional number of hours on top of the regular teaching hours. Some schools paid their TE teachers for overtime while some did not provide any remuneration. Average Mean Age of Technical- ocational High Schools The survey also found that the average mean age of the technical-vocational high schools in the Philippines was years (see Figure ). This means that they are generally well established. RBEC (%) n=0 Figure. THS Curriculum mplementation Shares During the validation visit, the research team found out that the distinction between the Revised Basic Education Curriculum (RBEC) Curriculum and Re-designed TE (RTE) is not clearly understood by school administrators and TE teachers.

Majority of TE high schools are on the second year of transitioning from implementing RTE though some still used the Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE).

6 TE Subject Offering An average of seven TE subject offerings were offered in each school (see Figure ). t was evident that among technical-vocational high schools, discrepancies existed in terms of the kind of offering of specialization, e.g. food technology-food trades; fish preservationfish processing; home economics-home technology; computer-computer and information technology. Majority of the technical-vocational high schools offered subjects such as Computer-CT, Electricity, Electronics, Journalism, Business Distributive Arts, Drafting, Metalworks, Home Nursing, Cosmetology, Food Service Management, Related Crafts, Recycling, Garments Technology, Culinary Arts, Entrepreneurship, Foods, Nutrition, Food Trades and Handicraft. Teacher Quality and Ratio Per Student The 0 schools surveyed have a total of, teaching staff members. This was equivalent to an average of teachers per region or teachers per school. The average number of teaching-staff members ranged from -.

Majority of TE teachers were also found to be between 0-0 years old and resided within or near the municipalities where the schools they taught in were located. The study also revealed that the average nonspecialist specialist TE teacher ratio was :. t also pointed out that there were very few TE teachers (approximately.%) who have had industry background or experience, most of which are in arts and trades schools.

Among these aforementioned buildings, an average of classrooms, three laboratories, and six workshops could be found. There were also makeshift laboratories and workshops made of bamboo and other light materials that are considered fire hazards and thus unsafe for teachers and students especially to the TE subjects that utilized electricity (i.e. welding, electricity and electronics technology).

Some were no longer appropriate for use as laboratories or workshops. Some school laboratories and workshops also functioned as multi-purpose rooms for several TE subjects due to a shortage in classrooms and large enrolment size. The technical-vocational high schools also reported average usage rates of.% and.% for equipment and machines, each of which were, on average, and years old, respectively. The importance of equipment, machines and laboratories cannot be overemphasized.

12 Proposed TE Reform Agenda The Philippines' Technical and ocational High Schools are still beset with the problems of quality, relevance, efficiency and access. The survey gave sufficient evidence as to what areas need extensive reform programs. These reform programs should be implemented systemwide and anchored on a TE development plan that would essentially provide investments and program guidance to enhance and further develop the DepEd s current TE program. As such, the suggested systemwide reform program should: Establish and develop criteria for identifying flagship technical-vocational high schools The study recommends the development of flagship technical-vocational high schools that will be fully equipped and staffed with highly qualified teachers. These schools will act as nodal centers that will lead others in the capacity-building strategies and resource sharing in every region. The DepED, in consultation with designated TE experts, may design the criteria for selecting flagship THSs and identify the roles they should play. The criteria must stress quality with regards to THS programs and geographical dispersion throughout the THS network. Phase out substandard technicalvocational high schools and consider converting them into general high schools instead Poorly equipped and staffed THS must be encouraged to offer general secondary education program rather than low-quality THS programs with limited State of Technical-ocational High Schools in the Philippines

13 training components. DepED should be able to identify the weakest technical-vocational high schools and thus advise them to either shape up or shift toward becoming general secondary education providers instead. Make TE more relevant A technical-vocational school s specialization must be kept in line with the thriving industries in the local community. For instance, if the province or region is well known for its exquisite and exportquality handicrafts, then the technicalvocational institutions in it should implement a curriculum that leans toward industrial arts, home economics, or entrepreneurship. Allow or create a THS Special Fund Scheme The DepED should propose to Congress a bill that will support the creation of Technical-ocational High School Special Fund from both private and public sources which will help upgrade laboratories and repair workshops to better meet their needs. This fund shall be used for targeted teacher professional development programs. This is in consideration of the findings of the study that most of the hand tools and equipment that THSs have were already The DepED should propose to Congress a bill that will support the creation of Technical- ocational High School Special Fund from both private and public sources which will help upgrade laboratories and repair workshops to better meet their needs. very old, damaged or deteriorating and thus were not suited anymore for teaching. Requiring students to bring their own hand tools, equipment and consumables would only result in more dropouts due to lack of financial resources. nvest in capacity building and THS teacher and administrator training t can be clearly seen that there is a lack of skilled technical-vocational teachers. n our analysis by region, it is very easy to see that more of the teachers handling technical-vocational subjects cannot really be considered experts in the field. t is clear, too, that despite their lack of expertise, they are not even given opportunities to develop their own skills in order to better impart their knowledge to their students. t is, therefore, recommended that DepED prepare a capacity-building plan for THS teachers. To help increase the rate of THS with training from 0% to about 0% trained by 0, local scholarships to upgrade teaching quality may be designed. This scheme will also encourage new education graduates to apply for work in technical-vocational high schools. The scholarship scheme should be accompanied State of Technical-ocational High Schools in the Philippines

14 School heads should also be trained in terms of sourcing support to keep up with the rapidly changing technologies. by eligibility criteria, award conditions and selection processes. Balance the teacher supply with the number of TE students t is also very evident that despite the lack of teachers, those that do stay on and continue doing their jobs seem to be overburdened in terms of number of students. This may be especially hard, for instance, if a teacher handles a class that uses heavy equipment or machinery that may endanger their students. On average, technical-vocational subject teachers handle around students at once. Teachers assigned to handle classes that may be dangerous should be given a little consideration by lessening their number of students per class so they can more easily supervise and ensure the safety of their wards. An actuarial study on how many THS teachers are needed within the next five years with the specific areas of specialization will also assist DepED in improving its teacher hiring and selection process. Develop a scheme to upgrade TE equipment and machinery The infrastructure in technicalvocational institutions should also be accorded its due importance. Some schools that have thousands of enrollees only have a few classrooms and infrastructures should they have the financial capability to do so. Technical-vocational schools may need financial help in order to accommodate all those who want to become more employable and productive, as is the DepED s and even the national government s aim. There should be a project to equip technicalvocational high schools' with laboratories and workshops that would bring them up to speed with prevailing standards in more developed technical-vocational schools. The identified Technical-vocational high schools should receive financial aid from the DepED to upgrade their laboratories and workshops. Utilize technical-vocational high schools mature technologies to generate income School heads should also be trained in terms of sourcing support to keep up with the rapidly changing technologies. They should not just depend on the budget that the DepEd gives them. They can, for instance, solicit tools, equipment, and machines from huge manufacturers and other large enterprises that frequently upgrade or shift to more advanced technologies or applications by convincing then that they can get tax write-offs for their contribution. They should, in other words, try to think out of the box and come up with ideas that may improve the quality of education that they provide to their thousands of students. State of Technical-ocational High Schools in the Philippines

15 Further strengthen the existing TE curriculum The DepED should continue to focus on providing not only quality education but also useful skills development to learners, especially to those that do not have the means to study if high costs are involved. The use and implementation of Strengthened TE Curriculum must be monitored fully to see proper implementation. Since it has been observed that technical-vocational high schools have different ways of interpreting the technical-vocational high school curriculum, close monitoring of their implementation is necessary. Develop strategic partnership with the community-based industries for facility and faculty sharing The administrators of the 0 technical-vocational high schools should collaborate with industry partners to meet their schools' specific educational needs. Lack of resources can be addressed by convergence, amalgamation and strategic partnerships. Review the existing TE specialization areas The technical-vocational highschool curriculum can further be developed in such a way that students can choose what technical-vocational course they want to concentrate on, similar to choosing a course in college. This way, instead of becoming knowledgeable in different fields, they can instead become masters in a particular field of their choice. Establish a link between the DepEd s TE program and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) s certification system The DepEd, aside from giving graduates of technical-vocational highschool graduates diplomas, can The DepED should also give them the equivalent continue to focus on TESDA certifications on the providing not only technical-vocational skills they quality education have acquired. Should they then, but also useful skills for whatever reason, fail to get development to a college degree, they may still learners, especially have opportunities to get jobs those that do not using their respective TESDA have the means to and DepED HS certificates. A study if high costs ladderized interface between are involved. TESDA and DepED is thus recommended. Periodically conduct further studies to review technical-vocational high schools progress The DepED needs to conduct further study to plan and invest for expected repair, servicing and other requirements of project laboratories, examining availability of technicians and maintening repair workshops and other school infrastructures. The DepED should consider the proposed THS Special Fund to finance these repair and maintenance of these laboratory and equipment.
