Senior High School students of Union Christian College successfully passed the assessment by the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA) for National Certificate (NC) II in caregiving, bookkeeping and cookery.
It is reminded that the graduates of the technical, vocational and livelihood track of the senior high school program are mandated to take up the assessment by the TESDA in response for the thrust of the education department to qualify high school graduates for work should they not be able to go to college.
In the Caregiving Program of the College with six students, they have registered a 100% passing rate in the NC II assessment last May. In the Accountancy, Business, & Management wherein the students were trained in bookkeeping, two of the students took the NC III assessment last April. Of the two takers, one successfully passed the assessment which pegged 50% school performance in the assessment in bookkeeping.
Recently this July, the Cookery Program pursued the assessment. Out of the six graduates, one took and successfully passed the assessment earning him NC II eligibility.

The results showed that the students were competent in two and three competencies out of the tested four competencies for CSS NC II.
