CGN Partners with Schools to Implement CSEP

CGN continues to share its advocacy and finding key partners from different parts of the country to help with nation building by bringing computer science to every student in every school.

CGN first signed an MOU with ACLC College Butuan City last February 2018 to incorporate the Computer Science Education Program (CSEP) to their existing curriculum as an elective and/or required course of study.

Not long after, the Philippine Programmers Rating (PPR) - an online assessment tool used to measure the real-world readiness of entry-level programmers - was recognized as an Alternative Certifying Body on Programming NC III Assessment by the Regional Technical Education and Skills Development Committee (RTESOC) Caraga Region III.

The RTESOC was established by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to coordinate and monitor the delivery of all skills development activities by the public and private sectors at the regional and local level.

Holy Angel University (Pampanga), STI College Santa Rosa (Laguna) and CIIT College of Arts and Technology (Manila) also signed the CSEP agreement to implement the program in their respective schools.

CSEP is a part of CGN's mission to increase the quantity and improve the quality of entry-level programming talent in the Philippines to adequately supply the human resource demands of the Philippine software industry.
