Philippine to prepare career path for sports-oriented students


09:02, June 12, 2012

MANILA, June 11 (Xinhua) -- The Philippine government will prepare a career path for the students who are sports-oriented as part of the K to 12 basic education program, a senior government official said on Monday.

Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Armin Luistro said that his office will conduct a workshop for teachers to guide sports-oriented students in choosing sports as entry to careers or higher education.

He said the Special Program on Sports (SPS) seeks to broaden the range of opportunities for students. They would have a choice to pursue a college degree related to sports or enter jobs as community coaches, apprentices, or physical fitness instructors.

"By orienting our students and teachers with the different fields related to the Special Program on Sports, they will be fully equipped with knowledge and processes that can be readily applied to their future careers," Luistro said.

The workshop will be divided into two concepts: options in the world of work and options in higher education. It will also feature discussions on sports ethics, sports marketing, and sports psychology.

Included in the training is a lecture that focuses on integrating the SPS curriculum standards to the K to 12 basic education program. It will also serve as an avenue for teachers to acquire new competencies in integrating sports in various aspects in school.

The K to 12 program, which the government implemented starting this month, covers kindergarten and 12 years of basic education.
