How Does ALS Work?

Students who are interested in enrolling in an ALS class are


encouraged to visit Community Learning Centers (CLCs).

Oral and written tests will be given to assess the students/pupils


competency level.

Applicants who have not attended any formal schooling before will
be enrolled in Basic Literacy Program where basic reading and
computing skills will be taught before moving them to advanced
classes.
How Does ALS Work?

ALS A & E classes takes a minimum of 800 hours to complete (8-10


months). The process of integration starts with the students
attending a 10 month learning and review session conducted by the
Mobile Teacher. After completion, performance are assessed in
preparation for the Accreditation and Equivalency Test (or A&E) that
will be given to these students.

Passers of either the Elementary or Secondary Level gets a


certificate which bears the signature of the Secretary of the
Department of Education. This allows a passer to be
integrated into formal education and also gives them the
chance to enroll for a college degree or technical courses.

Changes to the Alternative Learning System
(ALS) under K to 12
For ALS to be truly parallel with the formal system
and for ALS graduates not to be marginalized,
ALS focuses on the teaching of the same
standards and competencies of the formal
system.
It will provide various delivery modes such as
graded and non-graded modules, print or non-
print which will be made available online. An
accreditation and equivalency test for both
academic and technical skills is an important
component of the program.
