Call for applications: Family literacy and intergenerational learning certification course

To promote adult literacy and learning through research, community development initiatives, and continuing education programs, the UST Family Literacy unit of the Graduate School, in partnership with Transformare, invites you to take the scholarship opportunity and apply for its certificate course on “Family Literacy and Intergenerational Learning”.

The deadline for the submission of applications will be on February 21, 2022. The accepted applicants will be notified on or before February 28, 2022. 

The 8-week certificate course aims to empower its students with the understanding of the key components of family literacy and intergenerational learning, thus providing a space for students to share ideas, to develop new skills in supporting families and empowering community members, and to enrich the discourse on issues related to families and in the community. The topics covered in the scope of the certificate program include gender roles, linguistic diversity, culture and migration, and mental health.
Upon accomplishing the certificate course, students are expected to produce a project proposal, which they intend to put into practice within their institutions and communities.
A part of the impact activities of the research project entitled “Family literacy, Indigenous Learning and Sustainable Development: Proof of Concept Pilot”, this certificate course was borne out of the UST Graduate School’s partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – Adult Literacy and Learning for Social Transformation based at the University of East Anglia, United Kingdom.
Transformare is a Philippine-based interdisciplinary network that promotes adult literacy and lifelong learning through research, campaigns, policy discussions, and trainings.
