The Capacity of Selected Higher Education Institutions and Training Institutions in DeliveringGovernance Education Programs
Ederson Delos Trino Tapia (University of Makati)
Currently, there has been no study yet on the existing capacities of GovEd institutions in the Philippines. It would be interesting to ask the questions, what are the existing capacities of these GovEd institutions? Do they have a high level of capacity, average level of capacity, or lower than average capacity to deliver GovEd programs/courses?
Moreover, what factors make for a higher level of capacity compared to those factors which effect a lower level of capacity among the GovEd institutions to be covered by the study? Also, in which capacity component or aspect are some GovEd institutions strong, and in which capacity component/aspect are some lacking or inadequate?
Do some of these GovEd institutions know their existing capacities? Are they aware of their strengths and of their weaknesses? Do they make some efforts to measure their strengths/weaknesses as well as venture into some ways and means of measuring other GovEd institutions’ strengths/weaknesses for benchmarking purposes?
If these GovEd institutions are aware of their strengths/weaknesses, what have they been doing to sustain their strengths and to remedy their weaknesses? What problems do they encounter in building up their capacities? This paper addresses these questions and provides some initial recommendations on how some measures may be introduced to provide solutions to the problems identified.
