Global technology firm IBM has picked Taguig City University as the venue to pilot its tech education model, called P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School), a program that has already been implemented by the company in nine nations. The P-TECH program, first implemented in public schools in New York in 2011, creates a direct path between high school, college, and career by linking the education sector with local firms. The Philippines becomes the second country in Southeast Asia, after Singapore, to replicate the model, IBM said. The program has been successfully implemented in the US, Morocco, Australia, Taiwan, South Korea, Ireland, Brazil, and Colombia. In the Philippines, the program will cover grades 11 to 12 students who are graduating with their associate degrees in computer technology.
