Marcos demands to review K-12 curriculum to address job mismatch

President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’  Marcos Jr. emphasized the need to review the education curriculum to enhance the skills of students.

Marcos said that basic education skills and knowledge must be improved to address job mismatch.

“That is why we have to look at the curriculum as well. Not only of TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority), but also even our diploma courses,” he said.

Trade and Industry Secretary Alfredo Pascual vowed to work closely with the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education, and TESDA to address job mismatch, 

“We’re developing or helping universities develop this system of micro-credentialing because technology is changing very fast. There is a need for workers to update themselves, to reskill or upskill,” he said.

Pascual also suggested that Filipino teachers be sent abroad for training.

“Vietnam, for example, sends teachers to the United States and Europe for advanced studies,” he said

  1. The mismatch are caused by often disregard of the necessary skills and knowledge called for by the industry . There are no permanent talks and coordination between schools and the stakeholders occuring that would definitely lead to the refinement of the curriculum and ultimately lead to the resolve of the job mismatch. Dep Ed K12 are meant to have graduates to continue in College while others who can not continue are to get employed.
    To make this work it would entail the constant review ,refinement and flexibility of the K12 Curriculum according to the industry needs.
