Attn: Undergraduates, Hurry! Last Chance to Finish A Degree in College thru ETEEAP by CHED

Updated as of October 25, 2018 (ETEEAP is on-going)

Have you given up your diploma in college? Can you imagine yourself in first day high again? Do you wish to finish your college degree but finds it impossible due to time constraint and soaked at work? This is the answer to the dream you have been planning all these years. You have until Summer 2018 to enroll! I learned about this Memorandum of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) only last July 2017. Read more about CMO 54 Series of 2016 the Revised Policies, Standards and Guidelines for the Implementation of the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) for Undergraduate Programs . It is supported by the Executive Order 330. Download to learn more about EXECUTIVE-ORDER-330.

According to the CHED,

The ETEEAP (Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program) is a comprehensive educational assessment program at the tertiary level that recognizes, accredits and gives equivalencies to knowledge, skills, attitudes and values gained by individuals from relevant work. It is implemented through deputized higher education institutions that shall award the appropriate college degree.

Beneficiaries must be Filipinos who are at least high school graduates. They must have worked for at least five years in the field or industry related to the academic program they are obtaining an equivalency. They must also be able to show proof of proficiency, capability and thorough knowledge in the field applied for equivalency.
While NTSP (Non-Traditional Study Program) is a self-study program wherein the student’s educational background, work experiences, and achievements are evaluated and accredited through a rating system that leads to the completion of an undergraduate and graduate degree.
A self-paced study program wherein modules, independent researches and other instructional materials are laid down by the college and administered by learning facilitators who help enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the students. The final requirement is a paper presentation based on the field of specialization of the student. (Non-Trad info from PUP, which they are offering)
In short, this is for aspiring enrollees who have not finished their degree course and are not holding a professional or managerial position. I learned about this from the POC of PUP.
never give up
These are the Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and Degree Programs offered nationwide that were AUTHORIZED by the CHED for ETEEAP: (as of October 2017)

It is best to contact them directly for inquiries. Just like the Angeles University Foundation, it is on the list but the 2 lady personnel I have spoken to over the phone, answered that ETEEAP is not offered at their university. I called their 2 contact numbers for verification of info, I got the same answers. I did not ask further.

These are the questions I have for them in every inquiry I made:

  1. Programs offered (not all are on the list)
  2. Requirements for admission
  3. Enrollment ongoing?
  4. Tuition and other related fees
  5. Active contact number and POC for ETEEAP

Based on my experience, every school has different lists of requirements to be submitted for  ETEEAP admission. Some has a looong list and other lists are possibly you have readily available documents. What I did was search online the schools, get their emails and jot down their contact numbers until I reached the correct department. It requires patience as well.

The Higher Education Institution will require you to take an Assessment and PERSONAL interview. You must consider the proximity of your chosen HEI. Some may instruct the student to perform a demonstration/demo or practical exam on a face to face set up. And lastly, you will visit the university on your graduation day! It will be your choice if you will march towards the stage to receive your diploma. But, why not? You worked hard for it, right? So, the proximity should be considered. Agree?

laptop work school

Basically, after the assessment, interview and enrollment, the contact numbers of the professors assigned to the specified subjects will be provided. From then, the student and the professor will exchange communication as to the details of sending the modules, schedule of exams, submission of chapter tests, etc. Everything will be online since the thought of you as an employed student is considered. That is what the ETEEAP is all about.

I have inquired to the POC’s of Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Angeles University Foundation, Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University, Mariano Marcos State University and Pangasinan State University. Each of them varies with regard to requirements and fees. Some have just been Googled but never contacted yet at this point of writing. I will update if I gather any relevant information. I hope the CHED will extend the time frame allotted for undergraduates to finally finish their studies and get that diploma everyone has dream of.

I am not the perfect person to ask further about ETEEAP, but feel free to send me a personal message or comment down below. I will try to answer as quick and as accurate as possible. If I cannot address your queries, I apologize in advance. I have also just learn about ETEEAP. (Disclaimer)

Update:

I inquired with CHED directly if the ETEEAP has been extended. They replied to visit a link with their details about ETEEAP and other downloadable forms. Please see screenshot below.

Getting this reply means the ETEEAP program is on-going. So, hurry now and follow the steps to your dreams.

Please spread the word and like my Facebook page for more. 🙂 Good luck students!

 

CHED Urges College Leavers to Finish Studies by 2018

QUEZON CITY – The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) called on students who graduated from high school prior to the implementation of the K to 12 program, as well those who have yet to finish their undergraduate degrees, to enroll in college on or before school year 2017-2018 as the country shift to a new educational system.

Through a memorandum dated 13 July 2015, CHED Chair Patricia Licuanan said that the CHED Commission En Banc passed Resolution No. 264, series of 2015 which allows students “who graduated from high school prior to 2016, under the basic education curriculum before K12, and who failed to complete their undergraduate degrees, to enroll and finish their baccalaureate degrees from SYs 2016-2017 to 2017-2018, as a ‘last chance to go to college,’ subject to the policies of their respective higher education institution.”

In a facebook post, the CHED K to 12 Transition Program clarified that the Lifelong Learner Track aims to give assistance for higher education attainment of students who graduated from high school under the old curriculum before the K to 12 reform was implemented.

“All students who enter or return to college from SY 2018-2019 onwards will be presumed to have graduated from Senior High School. If you have previously taken college courses, the college or university you enroll in may credit them, consistent with the systems and policies of individual schools in terms of crediting,” it read.

CHED also added that they commissioned the Philippine Survey and Research Center, Inc. (PSRC) to conduct a study on the potential students under the Lifelong Learner Track. “The research addresses the longstanding need for a proper study on out of school youth, and how the education sector, particularly higher education, can best respond to their needs,” they said.

Resume Template of a Fresh Graduate

Are you a high school graduate or a college graduate? And you need to write your first resume? I am very happy to help you out. Hey that is customer service indeed. Let’s start your journey as an applicant.

Let us start with high school/college graduates with no work experience at all. You may be are too worried on how to make your first resume look good. The BPO (Business Process Outsource) industry is getting more competitive. The same goes for other industries. You have to sell yourself and show that you are the best candidate for the post. Here is a guide in writing your first resume:

Lazada Philippines
First Section: Contact Information

  • Use your full name and not your Nick name. Ex. Maria de Leon
  • No need for full address, baranggay and city will do. Ex. Manggahan, Pasig City
  • Use your mobile number and not your home number or somebody elses ex. 09xx xxx xxxx
  • Indicate professional email and avoid unprofessional ones such as sexybitch@yahoo.com. An email address with your name is good. Ex. Maria_deLeon@yahoo.com
  • You may include substantial network such as your LinkedIn url.

Second Section: Personal Branding Statement

The employers want to see what you as an applicant can do for them and not what you want from them. You have to show what you offer and how you are different from the other candidates. It should be inspiring and catchy like below: (Source: http://www.hloom.com)

I have a passion for customer service and I can create innovative solutions to keep customers committed to your brand and have them coming back for more.

You can also add actions to your branding like below: (Source: www.hloom.com)

I help companies drive profits and improve their reputation through innovative customer service solutions, never saying no, and not closing an interaction until satisfaction is achieved.

Your branding statement should be unconventional. Only you know how to brand yourself. Here are points to consider:

  • Keep it short and simple. All should be about your customer service skills.
  • Terms like passionate, committed, emphatic, creative, energetic, focused, aligned, intuitive, innovative, collaborative are strong words to consider in writing your resume. You should also brag about your problem-solving skills.
  • Focus on customer service skills. Mention what is impressive and not what is he business in general.

Third Section: Education

One of he qualifications is being a graduate. For high school graduates, you may include your primary, middle school and high school institution including the years and city where it is located. For college graduates, you may include the course you finished.

Fourth Section: Skills Summary/Qualifications

Since you do not have work experience yet, this is the next section of your resume. I will write another blog with experience section for non-newbie. This should have only 10 at most bullet points with word/phrases. Include the most relevant skills, not all. Highlight any Honors received while in school. Your entry-level resume should include ALL  the community service activities you engaged in. List also the part time jobs and internship. If you have Technical Skills, you may add those.

Lazada Philippines
Fifth Section: Seminars/Training Attended

You are a newbie, there is no work experience to flaunt yet. Yet, it is necessary to include the training and seminars you attended with connection to your education and the job you are applying for if possible. State the Title of the Training, Location, and Date (Month and Year will do). Make sure you have the certificates with you to present on the schedule of your interview.

Last Section: Reference

The reference section should not include any member of your family. The reference will possibly be contacted to ask about you and your background.These people will serve as the basis if the information written on your resume are true and valid. You may include 3 names with their profession, place of work and contact number. As a fresh graduate, you may include your professors or any one who knows you who can say attest to what is written on your resume. You can also say, “Will be provided upon request.” But, make sure you have it listed.

Remember not to use funky fonts. Arial font style  at 11 font size will do. Your resume should look as professional as possible. An image or 2×2 picture attached on the resume is not required at all. There are some cases that it affects the impression of the recruiter/interviewer to the applicant. I am speaking in general.

Below is an example of a resume. Feel free to add your personal details & achievements.
