DOLE, Philippines creates e-learning videos for clients amid COVID-19

The Department of Labour and Employment-National Capital Region (DOLE-NCR) has created online educational videos for the public, which they can watch on any internet-enabled device as the country experiences the prolonged impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the lockdown measures, limited physical contact, and travel restrictions due to the threat of COVID-19, the government must still make sure that the relevant labour education services are made accessible for free with the use of technology, the DOLE-NCR Regional Director, Sarah Buena S., Mirasol said.

As of September, DOLE-NCR has produced three new educational videos, explaining some of the most relevant DOLE topics, including:

  • The impact of the one-month enhanced community quarantine on the six-month probationary period (DOLE Labor Advisory No. 14).
  • Guidelines on the employment preservation upon the resumption of business operations (DOLE Labor Advisory No. 17).
  • The definition of “Separation Pay” under the labour code of the Philippines.

The Regional Director said that they hope that the e-learning videos would be beneficial to all clients and stakeholders in regard to the implementation of the Labor and Employment Education Services (LEES) Program, which under normal circumstances, would primarily rely on the conduct of physical or classroom-type lectures to target establishments and schools.

The department will provide more e-learning videos in the future to ensure the continued delivery of labour and employment education services, especially to target workers, employers, and students. Social media platforms have been instrumental in helping the department connect with its clients and it is committed to using these online communication channels to raise public awareness and support on DOLE programs during these uncertain times, the Regional Director added.

One of the core services of the labour department aims to enlighten, educate, and provide knowledge on the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers, work ethics, values, skills, and other relevant information to enable them to become responsible partners in building harmonious labour-management relations and the attainment of decent and productive work.

Recently, the Department of Trade and Industry-National Capital Region (DTI-NCRO), in collaboration with Zapateria, announced it is hosting an exclusive online workshop called the Better Normal Essentials: Crafting from Home.

During the online workshop, the participants will be able to learn how to make simple crafts for beginners that suit the new and better normal like alcohol holders, cup sleeves, masks, and envelope and lanyard pouches, the DTI-NCRO said in a statement.

The workshop will be hosted on 26 September via a Zoom conference. As a special offer, participants may also order a Maker’s Kit for the workshop, a press release said.

The kit will include the necessary materials and tools to be used during the session. Zapateria is a co-creation hub for shoemakers, designers, and hobbyists intended to foster innovation and creativity in the shoe industry and to connect them with the market. The DTI has always supported the shoemaking industry by expanding the number of shoemaking shared service facilities to benefit out-of-school youth, among others.
