Renown publisher and learning solutions provider partners with a youth-focused organization to introduce business skills programs.
In today´s highly competitive global economy, equipping young learners not just with the core skills for their academic excellence, but also with the entrepreneurial edge when it comes to facing real-life challenges head-on is an essential component for a successful future.
Announced to a rapt audience of both concerned educators and interested students during the recently-concluded Manila International Book Fair held at SMX Convention Center at Pasay recently, the partnership between REX Book Store Inc. and JA Philippines introduces their co-developed Business Skills Pass (BSP) program. The country´s leading provider of high-quality learning solutions for young learners further ignites its commitment to providing 21st Century Education through its meaningful collaboration with Junior Achievement Philippines (JAPI), an international organized committed to provide skills and training for young learners with lessons in workforce readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on modules such as the BSP program.
For over 49 years, Junior Achievers Philippines Inc. (JAPI) has sought to develop future business leaders in the country by tapping the potentials and dreams of young people, inspiring and equipping them to understand what it takes to become successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, nurturing a new generation of achievers with the help of educational institutions. Through the official launch of its BSP program, JAPI aligns with REX Book Store´s initiative of creating and sustaining a future-ready learning environment for young Filipino learners, one that moves forward with the latest advancements in educational methods and learner-enabling technology in mind.
The program is aimed at providing a degree of qualification for students which would certify them as having sufficient entrepreneurial skills to start their own business ventures, or be employed with businesses that require certain skills with an entrepreneurial orientation. The program designates results-oriented lessons integrated to a learner´s current curriculum aligned with the K-12 system.
With its full-year duration and mini-company experience, BSP creates a cohesive learning track for students who wish to enhance their business, economic, and financial knowledge. After achieving BSP certification, students are introduced to opportunities offered by both small and large businesses, as well as some of the top higher learning institutions of the country.
With the effects of the 4th Industrial Revolution continuously changing the ways with which we live in the 21st century, educational paradigms and learning methodologies must also evolve and adapt to these changes, and engage current challenges with a critically informed and holistic approach.
This is what REX Book Store strives to develop and implement with its suite of learning solutions and materials specifically designed to support the learner as a Whole Child; ensuring that each and every learner is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged throughout the learning process. With the help of schools, industries, educators, parents, and communities, REX Book Store aims to foster a holistic learning environment to ensure the success of each child, to shape and guide them towards a better, brighter future. Through its partnership with JAPI, REX Book Store widens the reach of the Business Skills Pass program, opening more opportunities for young Filipino learners to engage the challenges of the future.
