To guide graduating high school students in choosing the right career particularly on relevant job market trends and their corresponding competencies, the Youth Profiling for Starring Careers (YP4SC) was administered to students in the Municipality of Siay at the Siay Community eCenter.
The said synchronized career guidance program, intended to assess the aptitudes and interests of high school students, was created under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) in cooperation with the Profiles Asia Pacific and the Department of Education.
* The YP4SC program aims to develop a career guidance program that covers the following: aptitude and occupational interest assessment, labor market information, education and training information, career profiling, and career guidance and counseling.
** YP4SC is a complete guidance delivery system to help young Filipinos make the right career choices based on an objective assessment of their strengths and interests coupled with provision of information on what work will place them in a "starring role", updated information on what job and employment opportunities that are and will be in demand and information on education and training choices where the job can be learned. In the end, the students and parents are equipped adequately in making the right career decision. Ultimately, it will lead to a greater job fit and greater value to education and training.
