SEC 2010 is on its second year of implementation in all secondary schools in the Philippines. Some private schools last year did not adopt the program immediately but on the second year, it is already mandatory as advised by the Department of Education.
When students enroll in first year, they already have to choose a major field of specialization in T.L.E. which will be laddered until they finish high school. So they are not allowed to transfer to another field. It applies the so called UbD or Understanding by Design which is based on the SEC 2010 Curriculum. PECs or Personal Entrepreneurial Competencies is given emphasis here. And that essential understanding will be implanted in their heart and mind.
In T.L.E., students will be trained to become entrepreneurs someday. Whenever they go to college or not, as they graduate they will be bringing with them a crown that can never be taken-the mastery of their chosen field. If they go to college and will take a course related to their chosen field in high school, it would not be hard for them anymore since they already have the prior knowledge. What they need is to enrich the learning they obtained in the intermediate course. If they can not go to college for some reasons, at least they are already equipped with understanding about entrepreneurship and the specialization. They can start a small business related to his specialization or look for a job suited to his qualification.
