The Central Bicol State University of Agriculture thru the College of Development Education spearheaded a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) Signing with the Selected Private Schools on 17 December 2021.
The College of Development Education offers courses that allow every student to practice the theories they learned. Through Internship Program, the students are given this chance to manifest and show their talents and skills as full-pledged teachers.
In this time of Pandemic, virtual internships can help interns put their acquired theories into practice. Aside from being a requirement for their graduation, virtual internships may provide access to work experience to students.
This Virtual Internship would not be possible if the College had no partner institution to deploy their students virtually. Hence, the Dean and the Chairperson proposed a partnership with the selected private schools, particularly Pili and Iriga City.
Among these private schools are Yobhel Christian Academy, Evangelical Christian School, Montessori Children House of Learning, Universidad De Sta Isabel-Pili Campus, and Mother Theresa Colegio De Iriga.
Further, during the MOA Signing, another CDE extension program entitled Innovative Professional Engagement Among Private Schools Teachers (IPE-PST) was also launched. Research is also one of the components of the said MOA signing.
