DepEd and SSC jointly launched the Grade 10 Mass Training with 137 Math, 136 English and 153 Science teacher-participants from Sorsogon province and city divisions on May 4-9 and May 11-16.
As part of its extension mandate, the SSC Teacher Education department – headed by Dr. Gerry S. Digo – provided the training staff and 3 of its faculty who served as trainers: Mari-grace Carretero (English), Karina Belardo (Math) and Lawrence Mendina (Science). They supported an additional 14 DepEd resource persons as well as their monitoring/supervising teams. SSC, a Teacher Education Institution (TEI), formed this partnership with DepEd as part of the implementation of the K+12 curriculum. It also hosted the Mass Training for Grade 9 last May 2014.
