In its eager quest to champion accessible and relevant education in the Cordillera Administrative Region, the Commission on Higher Education – Cordillera Administrative Region through its UniFAST Unit conducted the first episode of this year’s series of the SEEDLING Project or the Skills Enhancement, Engagement, and Development: A Learning Intervention to Nurture Grantees on January 30, 2023, via Zoom and Facebook Live.

The kickoff episode focused on the topic “Coping with Academic Stress” with its hope to provide student-grantees with a platform to generate mental health awareness amongst them and to develop and strengthen their coping mechanism in dealing with academic stresses to promote proactive personality for academic achievement.

Serving as the Resource Person, Dr. Geraldine S. Orasing, Special Science Teacher III of the Philippine Science High School – CAR Campus, advised on ways in coping with academic stress and emphasized the importance of having quality self-care despite haggling tasks.

A total of 172 attendees consisting of grantees and beneficiaries of the grants-in-aid programs under RA 10931 or the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act and other interested youth completed the webinar.

Also part of the webinar is the provision of updates on the quest for autonomy of the Region. Ms. Menzie O. Kuengan, Supervising Education Program Specialist, presented the autonomy and development updates of the Region.

The SEEDLING Project is an initiative of the CHED-CAR UniFAST Unit under the leadership of Dr. Demetrio P. Anduyan Jr, Director IV, that aims to enhance the skills, establish engagement, and spearhead development for grantees and beneficiaries of RA 10931 in the Region through the provision of learning and development series. The next episode of the project is set to be conducted in March 2023.
