TELUS International University Program | Philippine Scholarship

TELUS International University Program

The Telus International University (TIU) Program, in partnership with local and accredited universities, offers team members the opportunity to complete their education or degree through subsidized tuition and classes taught onsite.

 

Apart from the university programs, team members can also pursue their own passions in cooking, languages, fashion, performing arts, and more through their partnerships with top notch schools.

 

In addition, they offer numerous cloud based tools and on demand learning opportunities to help you advance your career on a continual basis. The leading BPO company has more plans of reinforcing its academic program.

 

The TIU started as a project under their human resources department. Since then, they moved to Learning and Development and to Global Learning excellence, with the intent to align all learning initiatives under one global learning organization.

 

TIU has a relatively different setup from other BPO-owned educational programs. In fact, it is founded on partnerships with universities and learning institutions like the University of the Asia and the Pacific and Asia Pacific College, which then offer and conduct various courses and classes for enrolled TIP members.

 

First, they partner with schools and universities where they team members have the opportunity to finish their college or even take a double degree. Secondly, they partner with other learning institutions that deal with courses and help fulfill life’s passion, from culinary arts to music to fashion design.

 

TIU’s unique setup involves professors holding onsite classes at TIP on a block schedule basis. This offers convenience for students who find difficulty traveling to and from school. TIU also has site-to-site or school-to-site shuttles for the students.

 

There are courses that also entail students attending on-campus classes. These allow the student to maximize the partner school’s physical properties like its equipment and facilities.

 

TIU offers subsidy, discounted rates, and staggered payment schemes to interested team members plus that of the same percentage for their respective family members and friends. The TIU rates are lower compared to the program rates when the courses are taken externally.

 

TIU as a program aimed to support team members not only financially but cognitively and socially as well. For example, TIU holds no control over a student’s choice of course, offering him the freedom and opportunity to enrich himself as he moves up in his career and in life.

It is not necessarily related to the team member’s current role and they do not require a training bond. TIP wants to back their team members by supporting what they are passionate about.

 

Aside from the subsidy and liberty in course selection at TIU, TIP, for example, also assists team members in their educational needs through career counseling. It also conducts and supports other activities and events that might interest team members.

International Fellowships Program (IFP)

Barangay Nutrition Scholar (BNS) Program | Philippine Scholarship

Barangay Nutrition Scholar

The Barangay Nutrition Scholar (BNS) Program is a human resource development strategy of the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition, which involves the recruitment, training, deployment and supervision of volunteer workers or barangay nutrition scholars (BNS). Presidential Decree No. 1569 mandated the deployment of one BNS in every barangay in the country to monitor the nutritional status of children and/or link communities with nutrition and related service providers. PD 1569 also mandated the NNC to administer the program in cooperation with the local government units.

 

The BNS undergoes a ten-day didactic training.  The training facilitates the acquisition of knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed for effective performance of the tasks of identifying the malnourished, monitoring the malnourished, and referring them to appropriate service providers.

 

After the didactic phase, the BNS undergoes a twenty-day practicum to learn how to weigh preschoolers properly and interview mothers on matters which may relate to their child-rearing practices.  During this phase, the BNS collects and analyzes data on the barangay nutrition situation using the family and barangay profile forms.

 

In some instances, and due to resource constraints, the 30-day training is reduced to 3 to 4 days and the practicum phase becomes part of the BNS’s service period. He or she also formulates his or her action plan.

 

The BNS trainer-supervisor or the district/city nutrition program coordinator (D/CNPC) organizes, conducts, and supervises the training.  In the absence of the D/CNPC, the nutrition action officer (NAO) assumes these responsibilities.

 

 

Eligibility

A BNS is a trained community worker who links the community with service providers, with the following qualifications:

Bonafide resident of the barangay for at least four years and can speak the local language well;

Possess leadership potentials as evidenced by membership and leadership in community organizations;

Willing to serve the barangay, part-time or full-time for at least one year;

At least elementary graduate but preferably has reached high school level;

Physically and mentally fit;

More than 18 years old, but younger than 60 years old.

 

 

Benefits

The best reward of the BNS is the knowledge that they have served their community by helping prevent unnecessary child death.  In addition, the BNS receives some incentives too. After completing two consecutive years of satisfactory service, the BNS can avail of a second grade Civil Service Commission (CSC) eligibility by filing the proper application with the CSC regional office. This gives the BNS a chance to become a full-pledged civil servant should the BNS qualify for a vacant position in the local government.

 

A BNS receives a modest monthly traveling allowance from the NNC in Manila, the provincial, city, municipal or barangay governments.  The amount of the allowance varies depending on the financial capability of the LGUs.  In addition, BNSs from LGUs that submit a request to the NNC Manila are covered by a GSIS accident insurance.

 

Newly trained BNSs also receive (from NNC Manila) a bag, a T-shirt and a set of nutrition information materials to be shared with the other members of the community. BNSs also receive various material incentives like uniform, jacket, etc, from the LGU.

 

When the BNS does his/her work well, he/she could be chosen as an outstanding BNS in the municipality, city, province or region; and may even be a national outstanding BNS.

 

Further reading, http://www.nnc.gov.ph/plans-and-programs/barangay-nutrition-scholar-bns-program

 

To reinforce skills during the formal training, BNSs also attend monthly meetings.  During these meetings, the D/CNPC or NAO provides more information on proper weighing and record keeping, good nutrition, breastfeeding or other information to update their knowledge and skills.

 

The D/CNPC or NAO visits the BNS regularly observing and encouraging the BNS to do things correctly.

 

 

The basic tasks of the BNS are

  • Caring for the malnourished
  • Mobilizing the community
  • Linkage building
  • Other forms of assistance
  • Keeping records

 

The BNS locates and identifies malnourished children through a community survey.  This survey involves weighing all preschoolers and interviewing mothers to determine how the child is cared for, and the resources available in the family for their participation in nutrition and related interventions.

 

Based on the results of the annual weighing of all preschoolers in the barangay called Operation Timbang (OPT), the BNS  weighs every month all underweight preschoolers, with weights below normal, very low (BNVL).

 

The BNS also weighs every month all 0-24 month-old children to monitor their growth which is most critical at this stage.  The BNS also does a quarterly follow-up weighing of children, 25-71 months old, to the extent possible.

 

The regular weighing provides the basis for corrective actions which may include referral to the appropriate service or implementation of nutrition projects, together with the community.

 

The BNS also moves the community to organize into networks of 20-25 households, or into community-based organizations working for the improvement of their nutrition situation.

 

In the presence of other barangay-based development workers, the BNS may not necessarily deliver direct nutrition services to the community but serve as linkage-builder, to ensure that members of the community, especially those with underweight children, avail of nutrition and related services.

 

The BNS must be aware of the services available and of those who need these services, and establish a system through which those needing certain services are referred to the appropriate service provider.

 

 

 

The BNS assists in delivering nutrition and related services which include:

Organizing mothers’ class or community nutrition education

 

Providing nutrition counseling services, especially on exclusive breastfeeding and appropriate complementary feeding, through home visits

 

Managing community-based feeding programs under the supervision of a nutritionist-dietitian;

 

Distributing seeds, seedlings, and small animals from the local agriculture office and other government organizations and nongovernment organizations to promote home or community food gardens; and

 

Informing the community on scheduled immunization and other health activities but always together with the local midwife, agriculture officer, social welfare officer, and other workers.

 

To help other barangay workers and the local officials, the BNS keeps a record of the results of the regular weighing as well as records on the nutrition and health profile of families in the barangay.  The BNS also formulates a BNS Action Plan as guide in managing the different tasks assigned to him/her.

 

The BNS also prepares a record of monthly accomplishments to monitor his or her performance in relation to the action plan.  The record helps identify adjustments in the plan of action to meet targets set.

 

The BNS also keeps track of his or her daily activities through a diary.  The diary should list not only the BNS’s activities but also observations and insights as may be appropriate.

 

The goal of this program is to deliver nutrition and nutrition related services to the barangay by caring for the malnourished and the nutritionally vulnerable, mobilizing the community and linkage building.

Mashav prioritizes the goal of poverty alleviation, provision of food security, empowerment of women and upgrade of basic health and education services.

 

Initiated with the aim of sharing with the rest of the developing world the know-how and technologies which provided the basis for Israel’s own rapid development, MASHAV activities focus on areas in which Israel has relevant expertise accumulated during its own development experience as a young country facing similar challenges.

 

Mashav has trained approximately 270,000 course participants from around 132 countries in Israel and abroad and has developed dozens of demonstration projects worldwide.
