USAID Opportunity 2.0 is supporting the strengthening of the Alternative Learning System in the Philippines to achieve the shared goal of expanding quality education to more vulnerable out-of-school youth.
Dubbed ALS 2.0, the five-module Teacher Development Program will add project-based learning and design thinking content into ALS by training teachers and administrators. This helps ensure learners will gain skills as well as mindsets that prepare them for the dynamic world of work and business.
The training course was designed with experts from the Department of Education, SEAMEO INNOTECH, Education Development Center, and partner higher education institutions such as Miriam College, West Visayas State University, and the University of Southeastern Philippines.
An overview of ALS 2.0 is provided in this primer.
