This is part of the BPI Senior High School Acceleration Program for Employment and Entrepreneurship (SHAPE), one of BPI’s Foundation’s core programs, which aims to help the students be employable, entrepreneurial, and college-ready.
The first BPI SHAPE business and academic fair will jumpstart the senior high school students’ career growth by connecting them to companies for internship opportunities. Based on their educational tracks, the students can apply to a line-up of industry partners for work immersion, so they can earn skills that will help make them more employable. BPI’s industry partners include Collabera, Incuventure, Integrated Micro Electronics and Universal Robina Corporation.
Sessions on entrepreneurship, employability skills, and college education will also be featured in the event, spearheaded by training partners such as Globe Telecom, Jobstreet, and EdukasyonPH. Students can register online through https://edukasyon.ph/, www.internshipph.org, www.jobstreet.com.ph.
The business and academic fair will also be held on Alaminos and Siniloan, Laguna in October. Now on its second year, BPI SHAPE continues to strengthen student empowerment towards entrepreneurship, financial management, and personal development. Since its return last July, the program has assisted the government in developing industry-relevant education modules for senior high school and organized training workshops which benefited 150 teachers and 2,000 students. The three business and academic fairs are expected to help out over 6,000 senior high school students for internship.
