Overall Program Objective Work immersion will help develop among the learner’s life and career skills, and will prepare them to make decisions on postsecondary education or employment. Through partnership building, DepEd hopes that the Partner Institutions will provide learners with work immersion opportunities, workplace or hands-on experience, and additional learning resources. It aims to make the learners: 1. Appreciate the importance and application of the principles and theories learned in school; 2. Enhance their technical knowledge and skills; 3. Enrich their skills in communications and human relations; and 4. Develop good work habits, attitudes, appreciation and respect for work. 35

Why immersion is necessary Work Immersion is one of the course requirements for graduation. A Senior High School student has to undergo work immersion in a business organization/establishment whose work requirements are related to the specialization. Through this work immersion, the students are exposed to and become familiarized with work-related environment related to their field of specialization.“Work immersion is a key feature in the senior high school curriculum. It can be conducted in different ways depending on the purposes and needs of the learners,” Education Secretary Leonor Briones said. The guidelines said work immersion – which can range from 80 to 320 hours – will enable students to become familiar with the workplace, experience workplace simulation and apply their competencies in areas of specialization. What specific skills and knowledge the trainee will acquire during the work immersion and how will they be taught The specific skills and knowledge the trainee will acquire during the work immersion are one of the goals of the K to 12 Basic Education Program which is to develop in learners the competencies, work ethic, and values relevant to pursuing further education and/or joining the world of work. To achieve greater congruence between basic education and the nation’s development targets, Work Immersion, a required subject, has been incorporated into the curriculum. This subject will provide learners with opportunities: 1. To become familiar with the work place; 2. For employment simulation; and 3. To apply their competencies in areas of specialization/applied subjects in authentic work environments. To achieve the above objectives, Work Immersion is thus a requirement for graduation from secondary education. Learners are immersed in actual work environments such as workshops offices and laboratories in which their prior training is relevant. Work immersion will help develop among the learner’s life and career skills, and will prepare them to make decisions on postsecondary education or employment. Through partnership building, DepEd hopes that the Partner Institutions will provide learners with work immersion opportunities, workplace or hands-on experience, and additional learning resources.and how will they be taught The areas in which the trainee will receive instruction in conjunction

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
