Lifelong Learner Track

Lifelong Learner Track aims to give assistance for higher education attainment of students who graduated from high school under the old curriculum before the K to 12 reform was implemented. These are students who graduated from high school before 2016, and who stopped schooling before they could earn a degree, or who may not have gone to college at all.

CHED commissioned the Philippine Survey and Research Center, Inc. (PSRC) to conduct a study on the potential students under the Lifelong Learner Track.  

The research addresses the longstanding need for a proper study on out of school youth, and how the education sector, particularly higher education, can best respond to their needs.
