QUEZON CITY, Metro Manila—As the lead in training and extension in agriculture, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) workforce continue to deepen their understanding on the principles and concepts of the industry during the Training Course on Extension Delivery System (EDS).
In the second of the EDS training series, 26 staff from the ATI Central Office and its network of training centers gained new perspective on what extension work is all about.
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.
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.
