May 21, 2021 — To further capacitate student-leaders amid distance learning setup, the Department of Education (DepEd) will be launching a virtual leadership and character development training for Supreme Student Government officials.

Anchored on the mission, vision, and core values of the Department, the virtual training aims to capacitate young student leaders and hone their leadership skills and character.

“[My challenge to student leaders is to] listen to each other and listen with an open mind. Open your minds to change. ‘Yun ang challenge ko, you listen to us and we listen to you and we will make decisions together,” Education Chief Leonor Magtolis-Briones said.

Spearheaded by the Bureau of Learning Support Service-Youth Formation Division (BLSS-YFD), the virtual sessions will begin on May 21, 2021, and will run until June 11, 2021. The two-hour training will be held every Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 12 NN. Each session will also feature a different resource speaker.

Through the series of webinars, DepEd eyes to improve the leadership knowledge, skills, and attitudes of SSG leaders based on the groundwork for good governance, volunteerism, unity, and cooperation.

The virtual training will also tackle Personality and Character Development that aims to educate student leaders on the proper attitude and character traits that will help them lead their fellow learners.

Other session topics include Federation Overview, Culture and Language of the Federation, Social Media Engagement, Technical Writing Protocol and Procedures, How to Conduct Parliamentary Meeting, Orientation on National ID Program, and Digital Citizenship.
