MPCF-Canaman: 1st maritime school with a Gender Sensitivity Program


“A gender-sensitive school” is one of the titles that the Mariners System has added to its name.  

This was realized when a partnership between the Mariners and the Institute of Women Studies (IWS) of St. Scholastica’s College (Manila) was forged toward the realization of a gender sensitive maritime curriculum.

The formal signing on the gender-sensitivity program between the two institutions was held during the 30th anniversary of the Mariners Polytechnic Training Center (MPTC) on Feb. 27, 2013 at the Manila Ocean Park Hotel H2O by the Manila Bay. Mother Superior Mary John Mananzan, former president of St. Scholastica’s College (Manila) signed on behalf of Mariners partner Institute of Women Studies (IWS) together with MPTC president Merle J. San Pedro. (Please see photo)

The implementation of the new program by MPCF Canaman was started with an Orientation Seminar on March 15 for teaching and non-teaching personnel followed by a seminar-workshop for students the following day.

Facilitated by Ms. Tatis Yee and Ms. Zar Mendoza of the IWS, both activities were held at the audio visual room of MPCF Canaman.

More discussion sessions and trainings will be held in the coming weeks. A new gender sensitive curriculum will be implemented by the start of the next school year.

Aside from the gender sensitivity program, Mariners, through MPTC, will also adopt an alternative health program to be facilitated by an NGO headed by former Health Secretary Jaime Galvez Tan. The MoA for the alternative health was signed also at the MPTC anniversary.
