AMA Education System offers alternative learning route that can lead to fruitful career

Posted on Feb 15 2018 - 11:51am by Upgrade Staff

Statistics from the Technical Skills Development Authority (TESDA) bode well for students of skills-based programs. According to TESDA, seven out of 10 graduates of vocational courses easily find jobs, and nine out of 10 employers are satisfied with the performance of vocational school graduates. This means that exploring skills-based education, over traditional academic education, is now a viable option.

This is what the different schools under the AMA Education System (AMAES) is aiming to respond to, offering a range of skills-based options from 3-D Game Development to Sales Channel Management.

In a statement, AMAES said that it “believes that educational institutions should help students by providing options beyond academic courses. It has thus increased its vocational course offerings across the schools under its banner.”

“Schools should help expand opportunities for students and not limit them,” says Ambassador Amable R. Aguiluz V, considered the father of IT education in the Philippines and founder of AMAES. “We believe that learning is life-long and limitless, and offering more skills-based courses is our way of giving our students at AMAES institutions a wider, more extensive arena.”

Currently, AMAES schools offer skills-based tracks both for senior high school and college level programs.
