LCC Bacolod Offers Adult Learning Program Through Equivalency and Modular Instruction
La Consolacion College Bacolod (LCC-B) announces the opening of admissions to its Adult Learning Program, a modular option for those who want to attain a college diploma, but do not have time to attend regular classes. The program is a variation of the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency Advancement Program (ETEEAP), which allows working individuals to equate their work experiences whether through employment or by practicing as an entrepreneur, with grade credits in courses required in the curriculum of a degree program.
This comprehensive educational program is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education and leads takers into degrees in: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Human Resource Management; Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Marketing Management; Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management; and Bachelor of Arts major in English.
LCC Bacolod caters to all sorts of adult learners from various industry backgrounds. The program targets those who have substantial experience in a particular field of endeavor, but lacks the opportunity for career advancement because they are short of educational qualifications.
Students in the program are subjected to an equivalency process where their skills, work portfolio or exam results are examined to see if they meet the competency requirements of a particular degree. Once they have satisfied the assessment criteria, they only have to take those courses whose competencies are not found to be possessed by the adult-learner through flexible or modular delivery methods at a very affordable cost.
The program, which has been running for more than a decade, has graduated successful local entrepreneurs like Jojo Vito, who owns one of the biggest local souvenir manufacturing company; Frederick Pe, owner of one of the most stable local travel agency and part-time faculty of the University of St. La Salle – he has recently finished a doctorate degree; or Mark Vizon, an entrepreneur who owns a local frame manufacturing shop.
To date, classes are ongoing for the Adult learning which can accommodate a minimum of six (6) students for every class.
Prospective students may bring a copy of their Report Card or Transcript of Records; and Certificate of Employment or Business Permit.*
