Alternative Learning System (Filipino)



ALS

Ang Alternative Learning System o ALS ay isang programa ng Department of Education (DepEd) na naglalayong matulungan ang mga Out of School Youths, mga manggagawa, may-kapansanan, nakalaya sa bilangguan, dating rebelde ng gobyerno, mga katutubo, at iba pang tao na hindi nakapasok sa paaralan o hindi nakatapos ng pag-aaral ngunit nagnanais matuto at magpatuloy sa pag-aaral.

Nagsimula ang programang ito noong 1984 at unang nakilala bilang Non-Formal Education na ang pangunahing layunin ay ang makatulong sa paglinang ng teknikal nakapasidad ng mag-aaral upang magamit nila ito sa kanilang paghahanapbuhay.

Nang maging Alternative Leaning System ito noong 2004, nadagdagan na rin ang programang nasasakupan nito. Maliban sa pagtuturo ng livelihood education, kabilang na rin dito ang pagbibigay ng pagkakataon sa mga sa mga kababayan natin makakuha ng Elementary at Highschool na diploma.

Community Learning Centers

Ang Community Learning Center o CLC ay isang lugar kung saan isinasagawa ang pag-aaral ng ALS. Bawat siyudad o municipalidad sa Pilipinas ay may sariling CLCs kung saan pumupunta o pumapasok ang mga mag-aaral ng ALS. Para malaman kung san ang CLC sa inyong lugar, maaaring magtanong sa mga pampublikong paaralan at sa mga tanggapan ng mga barangay.

May nakatalagang isang guro sa bawat CLC na kung tawagin ay Instructional Manager. Ang mga Instructional Managers na ito ay maaaring isang guro mula sa Department of Education o isang propesyunal at bihasang manggagawa sa sangay ng kanyang sining.

ALS Accreditation and Equivalency Classes (ALS A&E) and Livelihood Programs

Ang mga mag-aaral na nagnanais na mag-enroll sa isang ALS class ay hinihikayat na pumunta sa pinakamalapit na CLC upang makapili sila sa kung Livelihood Education o Literacy Class ang programang nais nilang pasukan.

Ang mga mag-aaral na mag-eenroll sa Literacy Class ay pinakukuha ng oral at written exam upang malaman kung saang grupo sila maaaring ibilang. Maaari silang ibilang sa elementary o sa highschool level depende sa resulta ng pagsusulit.

Kung ang isang aplikante ay hindi pa nakakapasok sa eskwelahan o nakararanas ng isang pormal na edukasyon, sila ay pansamantalang ibibilang sa Basic ‪Literacy Program kung saan sila ay tuturuan ng pagbabasa at pagbibilang. Matapos ito’y makakapagpatuloy na sila sa programang nais nilang pasukan.

Araw araw ang karaniwang klase sa ALS, ngunit nakadepende pa rin sa Instructional Managers kung ilang oras sa isang araw, o ilang araw sa isang linggo ang kanilang ipapasok. Kung ang isang estudyante ay hindi makakapasok nang dahil sa ‘di maiiwasang pangyayari o ano pa mang kadahilanan, sila ay pinahihintulutang mag-uwi ng kopya ng mga aralin o modules upang kanilang mapag-aralan.

Nakapaloob sa mga modules na ito ang ilang katanungan at maikiling pagsasanay upang ma-assess kung hanggang saan na ang kanilang natutunan sa ginawang pag-aaral. Matapos masagutan ang mga ito ay ibabalik ito sa mga instructional managers upang mamarkahan.

Saklaw ng Pag-aaral

Ang ALS A&E ay nahahati sa limang kategorya. Ito ay ang Communication Skills (English at Filipino), Problem Solving and Critical Thinking (Science and Mathematics), Sustainable Use of Resources and Productivity, Development of Self and A Sense of Community / Value of Collaboration, at Expanding One’s Own World Vision.

Ang mga araling ito, na kung tawagi’y learning strands, ay isinama sa ALS A&E upang maturuan din ang mga mag-aaral ng mga praktikal na kaalaman na maaari nilang magamit, hindi lamang sa trabaho, kundi maging sa pang-araw-araw na pamumuhay.

Ang Livelihood Classes naman ay ang aralin kung saan matuturuan ang mga mag-aaral na malinang ang kanilang kakayahan na maaari nilang magamit sa paghahanapbuhay o pagnenegosyo gaya ng pagluluto, dressmaking, hairdressing, handicraft, at iba pa.

Haba ng Pag-aaral

Ang ALS A&E Classes ay karaniwang tumatagal ng walong daang (800) oras para makumpleto ang pag-aaral, ngunit maaari rin itong magbago depende sa pagkakatuto ng mga mag-aaral.

Ang pag-aaral naman ng Livelihood Program ay nakabase sa kung anong kasanayan ang pinag-aaralan. Maaaring tumagal ito ng mula tatlong (3) araw hanggang ilang buwan.

Pagsusulit at Pagsasanay

Gaya ng mga mag-aaral sa pangkaraniwang paaralan, ang mga mag-aaral ng ALS A&E ay binibigyan din ng mga pagsasanay at pagsusulit upang masukat ang kanilang natutunan. Ang mga pagsusulit na ito ay maaaring may fill in the blanks, multiple-choice, at pagsagot ng essay.

Sa pagtatapos ng pag-aaral, hinihikayat ang bawat mag-aaral na kumuha ng isa pang pagsusulit upang makakuha ng isang certificate na katumbas na rin ng elementary o highschool diploma.

Ang mga mag-aaral ng Livelihood Programs naman ay mayroon din dinadaanang pagsasanay. Ito ay ang pagsusulit sa pagkuha ng NC Certificate sa TESDA. Kapag nakapasa sila sa pagsususulit na ito, maaari na silang magkaroon ng TESDA Certificate na makatutulong sa kanila upang makakuha ng trabaho, hindi lamang dito sa Pilipinas, kundi maging sa ibang bansa.

    nakatapos po ako ng grade 8 pero nag stop po ako dahil sa family and financial problem namin gsto ko po makapasok ng college next year pwede po ba akong mag take ng ALS ?at ilang buwan po ba pG nag als?thank you po.

    • Hi Eloisa!

      Alternative Learning System is a project of the Department of Education through its Bureau of Alternative Learning System. Its aim is to help elementary and high school dropouts or those who have not been able to attend any schooling at all to finish their primary or secondary education through non-traditional ways of schooling. This means after passing the ALS A & E Test, you will be considered a grade school or a high school graduate, depending on the test you took, and will be eligible to apply for college.

      You can take ALS classes at Community Learning Centers (CLCs). These CLCs can be public elementary or high schools, barangay halls, rooms or buildings lent by government agencies or private companies and organizations, or any other open space where learners can gather together.

      The minimum requirements for enrolling in ALS classes are birth certificates and Forms 137 (Applies to people who have attended at least a year of formal schooling). Additional requirements may include a government-issued valid ID and 2 passport size photos with name tag.

      ALS A & E classes take a minimum of 800 hours to complete. These may last from eight to ten months, although the duration may vary depending on the progress of the learners.

      The duration of livelihood programs depends on the specific skill being learned. Dressmaking, for example, takes about 275 hours while Massage Therapy takes about 560 hours.

    • Hi Boby! As much as we’d like to help with your concern, we’re not affiliated with DepEd, so we’re afraid we can’t answer that question for you. We suggest you call the nearest DepEd division office so they can give you a more accurate and detailed response.

  3. God morning poh myrun poh ba als dto sa antipolo poh thanks poh

    • Hi Capate! :)

      We’re sorry, but we’re not quite sure about that. We suggest you either contact the nearest DepEd office so they can answer that question for you, or drop by at the nearest public elementary / high school or barangay hall (that’s where they usually conduct ALS classes) to check.

    • Hi Laoreno, maari kang magtungo sa sa mga tanggapan ng barangay o sa mga pampublikong paaralan diyan sa inyong lugar, upang alamin kung mayroon kayong progarama ng ALS at kung saan naroon ang CLC (Community Learning Centers) kung saaan isinasagawa ang pag aaral ng ALS. Makipag usap ka sa nakatalagang guro doon, ipaliwang mo na undergraduate ka ng elementary at gusto mong mag aral. Wag kang matatakot o mahihiya. Libre ang ALS at basta maging determinado at matyaga ka lang, kaya mo yan.. parehas tayong 29, undergraduate ako ng highschool at kasalukuyan akong studyante ng ALS ngayon! Goodluck sayo!

    • Hi, Capate! :) Please check with the nearest public elementary school, high school, or barangay hall at your place and they will inform you of the step-by-step procedure on how to enroll.

  6. hi.. i”m ALS graduate back 2012 and i’m here in California.. now i’m planning to go back to school while working to be an RN here..i just want to ask if pwde po ba yung diploma dto sa CA pag enroll ko icoconsider b mg school na highschool grad ako from the Philippines?

    • Hi, Dominique!

      From what we’ve heard in the past, issues may arise due to secondary education only taking 10 years in the Philippines as opposed to the US where it takes twelve years of studying (at least before the introduction of the K-12 program). We’re not sure if that is always the case or if it’s a case-to-case basis, though, so it’s probably best if you’ll consult the school where you’re planning to enroll at so they can give you a more accurate reply.

      :)

  7. tapos na po ba ung enrollment ng als??

    • Hi, Reynaldo!

      We’re sorry, but we’re not quite sure about that. We suggest you drop by at the nearest public elementary / high school or barangay hall (that’s where they usually conduct ALS classes), so they can answer that question for you.

      :(

  8. Pwede po ba magexam through online or pwede lng po aralin ang module through online? and what specific site po pwede tgnan ung availability ng ALS sa Car Region po? particularly sa Baguio po? salamat po.

    • Hi, Ana!

      As far as we know, the exam can’t be taken online yet. Modules, however, can be accessed online and studied wherever you are.

      We’re not aware of any official list, but you can find out some on this page:

      We’re sorry but we don’t have available information on the registration schedule for the ALS A & E Test yet. We suggest that you check the Department of Education’s website for announcements.

    • Hi, Emalyn!

      Yes, the ALS program is designed for elementary and high school dropouts.

      The minimum requirements for enrolling in ALS classes are birth certificate and Form 137 (Applies to people who have attended at least a year of formal schooling). The rest, you might want to check with the nearest ALS learning center (could be the nearest barangay hall or public elementary / high school).

    • Hi, Egielyn!

      According to an ALS coordinator we spoke with, students have the option of downloading / taking home modules which they can study wherever they are, whenever they want. Students still occasionaly meet with teachers for evaluation purposes or other urgent matters, though.

      :)

  13. hi poh god morning gusto ko sanang pumasok sa als pero nmamasukan ako bilang yaya ang free time ko lng every saturday lng pero minsan may importante kameng pinupuntahan ng amo ko npwede poh ba ung araw n aabsent ako ung lesson sa akin uuwi ko n lng nagbabakasli lng poh ako kac gusto kong makatapoz sana poh pwde un para makatapoz ako khit nagttrabaho ako thankz poh gumagagalang ruby

    • Hi, Ruby!

      From what we have been advised in the past, students can take the modules they need to study at home so they can study them at their own pace. We believe there are still deadlines, though, so you might want to check with your future teacher to be sure.

      :)

  16. pwede pa din po ba mag aral sa ALS ang High School graduate na?

    • Hi, Janz!

      As far as we know, the ALS program is only for elementary or high school dropouts who want to obtain a school diploma without going through the traditional route. If you’ve already graduated from high school, there’s no more need to enroll.

      :)

    • Hi, Rene!

      We’re sorry, but we’re not very sure about that. It’s probably best if you’ll contact DepEd so they can give you proper advice.

      As for your second question, yes, there are colleges and universities that offer distance learning. You can find some examples below:
