THE UNIVERSITY, in partnership with the city government of Pasig, will launch a 10-month science teaching certificate program for Pasig teachers on Oct. 17.

The 27-unit program will train 163 junior and senior high school science teachers from Pasig who are scholars of the city government to earn a certificate in science teaching.

The schedule for the program will be divided into three eight-week learning cycles. Classes will be delivered in a hybrid format.

There will be five sections for the selected teacher-scholars, four for junior high school teachers, and one for senior high school teachers. Each section will consist of around 30 teachers.

Experts from the College of Education and the College of Science will mentor the teachers.

Louie Dasas, the project’s lead and the UST Education High School’s science supervising teacher, told the Varsitarian that the teachers would attend some face-to-face (F2F) classes at the Albertus Magnus Building for their laboratory skills development courses. UST faculty members will also conduct some of the classes in Pasig.

“I am very happy that UST is continuing its mission to not just contribute to the formation of the professionals, but also contribute to the formation of already professionals. And I think that is part of the University’s mission to form competent, compassionate and committed individuals,” Dasas said.

Vice Rector for Academic Affairs Prof. Cheryl Peralta represented UST in the signing of a memorandum of agreement with Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto and Department of Education (DepEd) Schools Division of Pasig Superintendent Ma. Evalou Agustin on Sept. 20.

Dasas, College of Education Dean Assoc. Prof. Pilar Romero, College of Science Dean Prof. Rey Papa, Department of Secondary Education Chair John Valeroso and other Pasig and DepEd officials also attended the signing event. Logan Kal-El Zapanta
