Education For Global Competence: Servicio Filipino and ACT Partnership

"Education for Global Competence."

Servicio Filipino, Inc. and ACT has recently signed a partnership that aims to assess the needs of the Filipino workforce through its Career Readiness Certification. This will also serves as a tool to gauge the skills and competencies of students and trainees before entering the workforce.

The partnership also aims to provide training options for the labor force, develop the first registry in the country, propose the national recognition of Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education and Skills Development Authority of the ACT assessment, training curricula and certification as part of the career portfolio among students, et al.

"We will implement the full-scale Work Ready Communities (WRC) framework in the Philippines. The main purpose of the study was to examine the key strengths and weakness of the workforce in terms of their level of foundational workplace competencies based on the 21st century skills framework," said Luis 'Lloyd' Anastacio II, President and CEO of SFI Group of Companies. "This program envisions that the ACT WRC process, platform, methodology, and common criterion metric can be successfully adapted for Philippine government national workforce development strategy."

"ACT Workeys Curriculum helps people build the essential skills employers demand in today's competitive business environment," explained Simmy Ziv-El, VP for Global Business Development, ACT Inc., Iowa City.

This assessment and training system has been effective and brought positive results especially when it was conducted as a research in the province of Bataan in 2014. The result of the KeyTrain curriculum which was participated by 520 high school students in the province of Bataan showed improved foundational skills in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading Information based on the pre and post-test results. The qualified students were given International Career Readiness Certificate.

Through the partnership between SFI and ACT, the program will be brought to Mindanao to guage the competencies, strength and weaknesses of the workforce, and eventually in other places in the country as well.
