MANILA, Philippines —The first batch of grade 12 students will graduate this year.

In line with this, the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd) said that several companies are ready to accept K-12 graduates.

The first batch of students who underwent K-12 program will graduate this year.

Mac Paul Adrian Dagami of the Kapitolyo Senior High school in Pasig City is among the 1.25 million grade 12 students who will finish senior high.

He said that he will no longer go to college since he needs to find work immediately.

Under the K-12 program of the Department of Education (DepEd), students like Mac Paul who finished grade 12 can apply for work.

However, Mac Paul still worries that he could not find a job since he has many college graduate competitors.

“Kinakabahan pa rin naman po kasi college level na po yun,” said the senior high school student.

( I am a bit worried because there are college graduates.)

But the Philippine Business for Education said that several companies are open to accepting K-12 graduates like Mac Paul.

PBed Executive Director Lovelaine Basillote noted that there will be no discrimination between K-12 and college graduates.

Based on the group’s research, 93 percent of skills needed in the service sector are being taught to K-12 students.

“After going through the K-12 system, at naachieve nila yung competency targets, kaya nilang gawin yung trabaho na available sa mga companies,” said the executive director.

(After going through the K-12 system and they achieve the competency targets, they can do the work available in companies.)

Fifty companies in Metro Manila are set to hold a job fair exclusively for K-12 graduates.

These companies are in the service industry such as business process outsourcing (BPO), human resource management, and hospitality tourism.

Meanwhile, the DepEd is confident that the curriculum of K-12 is sufficient to prepare its graduates for work.

“In terms of their competencies, they have been trained to be ready for work or higher education,” said DepEd Assistant Secretary Atty. Nepo Malaluan. — UNTV News & Rescue
