Dual Education and Training (DET) is a twofold approach to learning that ensures a proper balance of theory and practice with the goal of maximizing the potentials of students for immediate employment after graduation. The theoretical part is taught in a classroom setting while the practical side is fulfilled in the companies through Industry Immersion.

This Guidebook is a blueprint for schools and their industry partners to implement the DET approach as an optional delivery mode in the TVL tracks of SHS. The guidebook is a product of a participatory process where selected schools and industries were engaged in a series of workshop initiated by GPCCI. The lively discussions and intellectual stimulations contributed to defining the school and companies’ roles and responsibilities BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the students’ completion of their Industry Immersion. Through this guidebook, it is ensured that the Industry Immersion component of the K to 12 Program will improve and the process of its implementation will become more efficient and effective.


Users of the Industry Immersion Guidebook


This guidebook is intended for all the educators and in-company trainers who are committed to help develop entry-level skills among SHS students for future employment. The required competencies are drawn from the curricular program identified by the school in partnership with relevant industry stakeholders and coherent with the training regulations set by TESDA.

Apart from SHS, this Industry Immersion guidebook can also be used by other educational institutions as basis for implementing their respective Industry Immersion programs, e.g. prescribed hours of on-the-job training.


Content Structure of the Guidebook


The guidebook focuses on the main processes, stakeholders, and their roles and responsibilities to carry out the Industry Immersion effectively. Each implementation stage spells out the preparatory work, the specific activities, and the deliverables to be achieved.

Specifically, the guidebook includes the following parts:

Part 1: Preparatory Phase

This portion identifies a series of activities that the school needs to undertake in order to lay down the foundation to implement DET. Crucial to this phase is the formalization of partnerships with companies where the structured and supervised Industry Immersion will take place.

Part 2: Actual Industry Immersion Phase

This phase shows how the students actualize their Industry Immersion in a company setting. Most of the activities will delve on how mentoring can be effectively done so that the students are able to strengthen their skills in their chosen field of study.

Part 3: Post-Industry Immersion Phase

This part includes activities that will help the school assess the performance of the SHS students to determine whether they have complied with the competency requirements set by the Industry Immersion program of the school.


Qualities of the IIG


The design of this guidebook considers the needs of the identified users who all play a vital role in making the Industry Immersion an effective component of the dual approach to learning. To make it usable and appropriate, the guidebook possesses the following qualities:

A guidebook that is generic yet focused

This guidebook is broad enough to allow different industries to customize its content to their respective contexts. Yet it is focused on the processes indicated in the implementation of the Industry Immersion. Such processes set the minimum standards in implementing the Industry Immersion under the DET mode.

A guidebook that is interactive and popular

Guidelines and benchmarks help implement each step of the Industry Immersion. The question and answer format challenges the user to reflect whether the processes undertaken are correctly followed or not.

A guidebook that values experiential learning

Short cases and reminders presented in each phase of the Industry Immersion process were drawn from the experiences of the participants shared during the workshop. This lends a pedagogical approach to the discussion of contents.
