CDA-BU TOT Batch 2 Takes Off


For the second time around, the partnership between the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) and Bicol University (BU) for the Training of Trainers (TOT) for Accredited Training Providers and Other Prospective Trainers of CDA took off last April 26-27, 2023, held at BU Main Campus, Legazpi City. It was participated by 32 individuals coming from the different primary and secondary cooperative-representatives all over the Bicol Region, together with some of the Cooperative Development Specialists (CDS) of the CDA. The Officer-in-Charge of the CDA, Atty. Emilio D. Escueta III graced the opening of the activity along with the officials of the BU headed by Dr. Baby Boy Benjamin Nebres III, the University President.


The power house professors of BU spearheaded the first day of the training proper. Included in the topics were the Adult Learning and Teaching, Training Cycle and Needs, Training Design and Delivery, and Training Evaluation and Monitoring. On the second day, one of the highlights of the three-days training was the discussion presented by Supervision and Examination Section (SES) Chief and Senior CDS of CDA, Ms. Maricho T. Pobre. The discussion was all about the alignment of the content and strategies in conducting one of the mandated trainings on Fundamentals of Cooperatives, as per MC 2022-21, where the topic during the teaching demonstration of the participants will be derived. Other than that, the participants were also required to accomplish a training design and session plan. Lastly, the third day was assigned in the conduct of teaching demonstration where their works and output were critiqued and subjected to polishing.

All in all, the three-days TOT was a success. In the message of Cooperative Research Information and Training Section (CRITS) Chief, Ms. Monina M. Bechayda, she thanked all the participants in the all-out participation, and encouraged everyone to be the kind of trainer that the participants in the cooperative sector should wish to be upfront. She also thanked wholeheartedly the people behind the success of the event, especially the hardworking team of BU and CANOFECO. The day ended with a remarks that Batch 3 is up and coming!
