“The one-day seminar on work values for K to 12 teachers was very essential and timely to us teachers for us to appreciate more our duty and be inspired again and again despite work-pressure.” -- Seminar Participant
Cheater, is a result when we rearrange the letters in the word teacher. It may serve as a reminder for teachers -or for any professional- to give the best in fulfilling ones work. We don’t cheat our employer of what is due them.
There were two occasions where Dualtech had the opportunity to conduct the seminar “Dualtech 101: Work-life Effectiveness” to teachers. The first was during the celebration of National Teachers’ Month. Dualtech’s Mr. Cris Malaiba spearheaded the activity for Calamba City Public School Teachers. The event was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Calamba.
The second, was requested by the Department of Education in Bohol. There are good number of students coming from Bohol. The teachers wanted to experience what the scholars are experiencing.
The seminar was a chance for Dualtech to spread what it does best: teach work values and attitudes. Dualtech takes pride in the values formation it imparts to the students. Many partner companies make special mention on the work ethics and professionalism of Dualtech alumni and trainees in their plant. As a teacher puts it: “The training and other experience of Dualtech are awesome and amazing. They are indeed gifts from God to combat the decadence of our out of school youth. These superb experiences should be made accessible to all, especially people from DepEd who are strategically responsible in nurturing our learners.”
Dualtech believes that in the formation of a child, form PARENTS FIRST, Teachers second. “The seminar is indeed a big help to us teachers. It reminds us of our responsibilities as teachers and most importantly in how to value our work and people especially coworkers and students. To realize my purpose as a teacher. It also gives me an idea that this is not just work but also a ministry, a task given to me by the Lord..”
Part of Dualtech’s CSR is a quarterly seminar on “Dualtech 101: Work-life Effectiveness”. Key people from partner companies attend this workshop. Principals, Teachers, and DepEd officers who are interested may contact Mr. Leonard Calma at 09178953768.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION BOHOL SCHOOL TOUR
DepEd Bohol Division toured at Dualtech Center to meet their scholars and to see the training program during the 6-month Basic Training in Electromechanics Technology.

“Nag-aral po ako noon sa Bohol sa kursong Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology Major in Refrigeration and Airconditioning pero di po ako nakapag-patuloy sa 2nd semester dahil puno ng utang. Mahirap lang po kasi ang buhay.
Dualtech ang tumulong sa akin. Lagi ko po isinasa-isip at isinasapuso na kahit saan ako magpunta, ako ay Tatak Dualtech”

Angelicum Foundation Scholar, Trainee, Transcendt Technology
“Adventure po ang pag-aaral sa Dualtech kasi madami nabago sa sarili ko. Dati wala naman ako plano magbago pero binigyan naman ako ng opportunidad na makapunta dito. Noong pagpunta ko sa Dualtech, di ako nag-expect na makatagal kasi hindi ito ang gawain ko, bakit pa ako magbabago? Naisip ko, sayang at may pangarap din naman ako na maiangat sa kahirapan aking pamilya.”

Angelicum Foundation Scholar, Trainee, NXP Semiconductor
“Gustong-gusto ko talaga mag-aral. Ang pangarap ko ay makapag-tapos dahil panganay ako sa aming apat na magka-kapatid. Gusto ko po tulungan ang pamilya ko dahil ako na lang po ang kanilang pag-asa.
“Ang experience ko dito sa Dualtech ay unique. Hindi ko akalain na may ganitong kurso na tinuturo ang madaming skills at ma-improve mo pa ang iyong sarili.”

“Ang Dualtech ang nagbigay sa amin ng HELP. HELP which stands for H – Hope, binigyan po kami ng pag-asa na makapag-aral pa. E – Encouragement, hinihikayat nila kami na magpatuloy sa pag-aaral. L-Love, dahil pinaparamdam nila ito sa amin. And P-Prayer, dahil pinagdadasal nila kami”

Dr. Wilfreda D. Bongalos, School Division Superintendent of DepEd Bohol, also shared her appreciation to the partnership with Dualtech. “We have no partners at all. We educate them up to the point that they passed the examination. We need a program which we can trace our students if they have jobs or pursuing further study.”
Since 2015, DepEd Bohol sent over 300 scholars.
“On behalf of the province of Bohol and DEPED, we thank and salute Dualtech for doing a good job to our boys. Iba na talaga sila. Without you, our program will not be possible”, Dr. Bongalos.
Bohol has about 20,000 out of school youth whom they need to help as one of the measures by the provincial government to alleviate poverty.
