DAVAO CITY, Davao del Sur— “Career development is about fulfilling careers, instead of fulfilling jobs.”
This was one of the points highlighted by Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean at National Defense College of the Philippines, Dr. Theresita Atienza, during the orientation-workshop for agricultural extension workers (AEWs) on career development. She emphasized that a job may feed one’s family but fulfilling a career gives one happiness and satisfaction.
QUEZON CITY, Metro Manila—To successfully bridge the gap between agricultural information and the farmers, there is a need for agricultural extension workers (AEWs) to continually build a strong foundation of knowledge and skills that will equip them in performing their duties more effectively.
PHILIPPINES—With its continued efforts to provide fast access to updated agriculture-related information, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), through the Information Services Division (ISD), conducted “In Focus: A Training on Photography” for its staff.
The training served as an avenue to elevate the staff’s skills in terms of documentation and, ultimately, the development of various knowledge products.
Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.
