Civic Education Training Seminars
The Civic Education Training Seminar (CETS) is a content seminar designed to provide the people charged with the citizenship training of our youth with updated, improved and integrated materials and pedagogy, as well as the necessary training to use these materials effectively in imparting key concepts and lessons in love of country, civic culture, democracy, human rights, rule of law, and economic citizenship.
The program modules have been developed, and a limited number of seminars have been implemented However, this implementation was only for the first phase and was not fully implemented due to funding limitations.

The Civic Education Training Seminar is an integrated approach at increasing the competence of teachers in Civic Education, primarily in strengthening their grasp of the subject matters included in the“Makabayan” (or “Citizenship”) Curriculum, but also in other subjects that may be embedded with lessons in civic responsibilities throughout the high school curriculum. Considering that the time allotted for Civic Education has been reduced by the Makabayan curriculum, it becomes even more imperative that the handling of these subjects be made more integrative and effective in the short time provided for it.
It incorporates concepts of democracy and civic education in the existing curriculum of the high school level. This is to avoid opposition from administrators and teachers who perceive additional content as intrusive and burdensome. The CETS modules have been crafted in such a way that the ideas of civic education are seamlessly integrated into the four social studies subjects in high school.
