The Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns (BWSC) is now gearing to advocate its various programs to intended clients in a more innovative approach, by adopting the Bureau of Labor Relations (BLR)'s enhanced Labor and Employment Education Services (LEES).
Ten staff of the Bureau recently attended a three-day in-house learning session-workshop on the development of animated-audio visual presentations (AVPs), as IEC materials to promote the BWSC programs.
The conduct of said training is BWSC's initiative to re-echo the LEES by involving representatives from the different divisions in developing IEC materials for their respective programs.
The DOLE, as it innovates labor and employment education services, makes use of the animated AVPs, as a more pro-active, coherent, and technology-based IEC materials, to communicate its various programs to a broader audience.
Renz Nucup, the designated LEES focal person for BWSC, along with Ricardo Serrano, Jr facilitated the training, by introducing the background and tips on the use of the animation program to the participants.
Five animated videos, ranging from 60 seconder to 3 minutes presentations were produced, namely, Batas Kasambahay, Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program, Social Amelioration Program (SAP) in the sugar industry, and DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP), and specific programs for persons with disability.
These animations were presented during the Flag Ceremony at the DOLE parking lot last April 21, 2014 wherein the BWSC played host. Animated videos on Batas Kasambahay and Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program were likewise presented during the inter agency meeting on the Protocol on the Rescue and Rehabilitation of Abused Kasambahay and the National Child Labor Committee Sub-Committee on Knowledge Management meeting on April 21 and 22, respectively.
The BWSC, will further develop other animated-AVPs for other regular and special projects, and will consider variety of IEC materials to suit the information needs of the different audience.
