NRCO to launch SPIMS FB page
According to the Digital Global Review, a global company studying social media, Filipinos spend more time on social media that anyone else in the world, solidifying our reputation as an online engagement hub. In fact, Filipinos spent an average 4.17 hours daily on social media in 2016.
Realizing the importance of social media as a platform for engagement and promotion for reintegration initiatives and services, the National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO) has just recently launched its official Facebook page for its employment reintegration program called as “Sa ‘Pinas, Ikaw ang Ma’am at Sir” (SPIMS).
The official SPIMS social media page aims to:
- Provide updates, announcements, and information regarding the SPIMS program and become more responsive to the inquiries and questions coming from its current and potential beneficiaries;
- An avenue to encourage more OFW-Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) passers to practice their profession as Teacher 1 for elementary and junior high school in various public schools in the Philippines; and
- Increase the public’s awareness and understanding of the benefits of the SPIMS program, specifically targeting those who are planning to come home and stay in the country for good with gainful employment.
The SPIMS program is in response to the call of the DepEd in hiring more public-school teachers nationwide to support the full implementation of the K-12 program and DOLE's thrust to bring home OFWs and to be with their families.
