The University of Santo Tomas Graduate School strongly promotes adult literacy and learning through research, community development initiatives, and continuing education programmes. Thus, the NGO Transformare, in collaboration with the UST Family Literacy Team under RCSSED (Dr. Gina Lontoc, Dr. Camilla Vizconde & Dr. Belinda de Castro), is pleased to invite you to apply for scholarship opportunities for the ‘Certificate Course in Family Literacy and Intergenerational Learning’.

The deadline for submission of application is on February 21, 2022. Successful applicants will be notified on or before February 28, 2022. The organizers are currently processing the CPD Units (for professional teachers and social workers) for this certificate course

This program is part of the impact activities of the research project of the UST Family Literacy Team titled, ‘Family literacy, indigenous learning and sustainable development: Proof of concept pilot’. The aim of the course is to help students develop an understanding of key components of family literacy and intergenerational learning. By the end of the certificate course, students are expected to produce a project proposal which they intend to implement within their institutions.

The course will run for 8 weeks in April and May 2022 and sessions will be delivered fully online. This course is intended for Adult literacy/DepEd ALS (Alternative Learning System) facilitators and program implementers, social/community workers, social ministry staff and coordinators, and faculty members/coordinators involved in service learning and community integration/extension programmes of their institutions.
