Introduction:
Congratulations, your learners are now ready to create their Lifelong Learning Plan and to
conduct personal and career development activities that will help them grow and advance in their
life and career!
From the previous module, your learners identified the rights and responsibilities of the

becoming successful in one’s chosen career, and evaluated extrinsic and intrinsic motivation for
sustainable work satisfaction.
In this final module, you will guide your learners to conduct their career development gap
analysis and develop their lifelong learning plan. Your learners should be aware that their lifelong
learning plan will determine the kind of citizens they will be in the future. They will also be asked
to write their original career philosophy expressing their love and passion in their chosen career.
Fasten your seatbelt and get ready for exciting and challenging tasks ahead of you!

Sequence of the activity:


1. Give back the Grade 11 Module 8 Goal-Setting activity sheets to their respective
owners.
2. Instruct the learners to take a look at their Grade 11 Module 8 Goal-Setting Activity
Sheets and review their long-term, mid-term, and short-term goals.
3. Distribute 3 meta-strips (1 blue, 1 red and 1 yellow) to each of the learners.
4. Instruct the learners to write on the blue meta strip the goals which they have already
accomplished since they targeted them in Grade 11; on the red meta-strip the goals
which they were not able to accomplish but which they think they really need to
accomplish in 1to 5 years; and on the yellow meta-strip those goals which they still
want to pursue in 6 to 20 years. Inform them that they are allotted 10 minutes for this
activity. Mount the Career Destination Plot on the board/wall.
Instruct the learner to post all their blue meta-strips at the bottom area labelled
designated for achieved goals; the red meta-strips at the middle area labeled with
1-5 years target and the yellow meta-strips at the topmost area.
Career Destination Plot

Process Questions
After the activity, ask the learners the following questions:
1. How did you find the activity?
2. What percent of your short-term goals did you already accomplish? Enumerate these
goals.
3. What short-term goals were you not able to accomplish yet? What midterm and long-
term goals do you still want to pursue?
4. What realization do you have now after comparing your accomplishment with your set
target? (To deepen their realization on the lifelong learning gaps which they need to

fill-in, and connect them to the next activity, ask the students to choose their pair and
discuss question number 5 in 5 minutes.)
5. Aside from your reflected career goals, what other goals do you want to achieve in
your spiritual, personal, and social life? Do you think you already possess all the
lifelong learning skills you need to truly succeed and advance in life and career? (Make
this question as a springboard to the lecturette).

IV. Lecturette: (20 Minutes)

Lifelong Learning Strategies

Now that you are very certain about your preferred life and career, you might
wonder, what is next after landing on your dream job or getting your desired profession
or vocation? Learning should never stop once you became employed, you need to
continuously improve and undergo lifelong learning activities that can help you grow in
your chosen profession and reach your ultimate career goal. Lifelong learning is composed
of different strategies or activities that can help you improve continuously in knowledge,
skills and other competencies that are important in your life and career. Lifelong learning
strategies include, but are not limited to the following programs or activities:

1. Graduate school programs (e.g. Master of Science in Criminal Justice,


Master in Business Administration, and Doctorate Courses)
2. Adult learning courses, distance education programs, and online webinars
(e.g. TESDA Online Courses, UP Open University and Livelihood
Trainings)
3. On-campus training events (e.g. seminars, workshops, special speakers, etc.)
4. Off-campus conferences, conventions, and workshops (e.g. National
Conferences for Educators, Nurse Practitioner Conference, and others)
5. A personal structured reading plan focused on a particular area of
development (e.g. Reading plan for improving leadership skills)
6. Mentoring or coaching by immediate supervisors/managers
7. An in-house action research project.
8. Social networking (e.g. LinkedIn)

The Lifelong Learning Plan


It is a human nature to desire progress. According to Victor Lipman of Forbes, the
possibility for “career advancement is an especially powerful job motivator. Writing a plan
on how you want to progress in your career will give you a clear path on how you can grow
in your chosen life and career.
For you to grow and become successful in your own chosen life and career path
you need to develop a plan for your advancement. Lifelong Learning Plan is a written plan
that will serve as a road map to your voluntary, ongoing and self-motivated pursuit of
development for either personal or professional growth. You need to set goals for your

Validation Copy – Module 8 Page 5


These materials are developed for use in the implementation of Career Guidance Program for Grade 12. Reproduction of this
material for non-DepEd initiated CGP is strictly prohibited. 2017
improvement, set time frames to accomplish these goals and identify resources and key
persons that can help you achieve these goals.

The Three Aspects of Your Lifelong Learning Plan


The career aspect will give you a structure on career advancement that will guide
you on the things that you need to do and to go where you want to go in your career, like
your transition from entry-level position to managerial position. In the social aspect of
your LLP, you will be guided on how to establish social linkages in your career and expand
your network. While in the personal aspect, you will identify key areas for personal
growth and will make you prepared for important transitions in life, like setting a plan to
marry and have your own family. This is based on the notion that your personal life may
affect your career and vice-versa.
Process Questions:
1. What are the different lifelong learning activities that you can undergo to continuously
grow in your chosen career and life?
2. Why do you think it is necessary to conduct Career Gap Analysis in creating your
Lifelong Learning Plan?
3. What is Lifelong Learning Plan? How can it help you as a graduating student?

V. Application: (35 Minutes)


At this time, the learners already have preferred SHS curriculum exit and clear career
roadmap on how they want to progress in their chosen career and life. For this activity,
the learners will create their Lifelong Learning Plan.
Give each learner the copy of Lifelong Learning Plan Worksheet found in Appendix
___.
MY LIFELONG LEARNING PLAN
Name: ____________________________________
Track and Strand: ___________________________________
Though there is no prescribed procedure in creating a Lifelong Learning Plan, the
following are the suggested steps that one can undertake to come up with an effective
career progression plan:
1. Start by identifying your areas of improvement
After being employed or hired in your desired profession or vocation, you can still
advance in that career and aspire to reach a higher status. The initial step is to
identify areas of improvement in knowledge, skills, competencies, and values that
you need to prioritize in achieving your career goals. This can be done through a
Career Gap Analysis, wherein you will compare your current situation to your
career goals, then describe what you need to accomplish in order to achieve them.

2. Set objectives based on your gap analysis
Remember that goals and objectives must be SMART, which means specific,
measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. Restate your gap description
into objective as shown below.
Gap Description Objectives
I need to acquire the qualifications for To be appointed as Secondary School
Principal I by finishing my BS and Principal I after 12 years.
Master’s degree education while
earning the work experience required.

3. Write your plans to bridge the gap.

Now, let us work with the main part of your Lifelong Learning Plan. The objectives
that you set will bridge the gap in your career progression. However, to ensure the
accomplishment of these objectives, you need to identify lifelong learning
activities, key persons and resources involved in achieving your life and career
goals. It is also important to make your objectives time-bound and set mode of
verification as proof of your objectives’ attainment:

Gap Bridging Plan


Objectives Lifelong Resources Time Mode of
Learning Frame Verification
Persons Materials/ (Proof of
Strategies Financial Accomplishment)
To be -Traditional Parents, Scholarships 2018- Appointment
appointed as tertiary and relatives, P100,000 2027 Paper as
Secondary graduate teachers, Principal I
Principal I education guidance
after 12 counselor
years

To fill in the lifelong learning activities or strategies column, you can choose from
the list of lifelong learning strategies discussed in this module, the best activity that
will close the gap between your career goals and your present realities.
No man is an island, the cliché goes. To achieve your career goals, you need key
persons that can help you accomplish your objectives for personal and career
development. Your family, friends, colleagues, mentors or coaches, department
heads, supervisors, even spiritual or financial advisers can actually be part of the
key persons involved in your career development.
Career advancement is also an investment, you need to allot financial or materials
resources to accomplish doable tasks that will help you achieve your set objectives.

Your LLP should be time bound, setting time frame for each objective to
accomplish will somehow help you monitor your progress and achieve your goals
on time.
Mode of verification is an actual evidence of your outcome after doing a particular
lifelong learning activity. It can be a certificate of participation in a training or
workshop, a coaching or mentoring form, or Transcript of Records after finishing
your Master’s degree.
For sample output, refer to Appendix __.

VI. Reflection: (15 minutes)

My Career Philosophy
Note: Before the activity, have 6 copies of the airplane template (refer to Appendix ___).
Cut out the airplane figures according to the number of members in every group.
Procedure
Let the class go over their written mission
statement in Module 5. Show the video clip of
compiled quotations on career and success to set
the tone. In case, computer and projector are not
available, the teacher is encouraged to prepare an
improvised instructional material for this activity
or write the quotations on the board.
Ask a volunteer to pick one quote and share their thoughts in a sentence. Lead the
class in writing their own career philosophy.
Ask the learners to group themselves into 6. Cut out parts of airplane equivalent
to the number of members in every group. Distribute the airplane cutouts and present the
sample career philosophy and the blank template to the class. Ask them to write their
career philosophies on the cutout given to each, following the template guide. Let each
group put together all the airplane puzzle cutouts and post them on the wall. Tell them
that the plane’s cockpit should be facing upward as what they want their career to be
soaring up high.

“Together with others, everyone has a mission to fulfill somewhere,


somehow in this wide world.”

Sulat Para sa Aking Sarili sa Hinaharap


Mahal kong Gio,
Gusto kita kasi ikaw ay masikap sa iyong pag-aaral. Hinahangaan ka ng
iyong mga kamag-aral at guro, dahil sa iyong husay sa pakikipagtalastasan.
Gayunman, kung may isang bagay na dapat mo pang paunlarin, ito ay ang
iyong pag-sasaayos ng mga gawain at time management. Sana, ngayon ay isa ka
ng Master Teacher sa isang pampublikong paaralan, na gumagabay sa mga
mag-aaral ng ika-21 siglo gamit ang mga makabago at epektibong pamamaraan
ng pagtuturo. Alam ko na mahal mo ang propesyong ito, dahil naniniwala ka
na mahalaga ang gampanin ng guro sa paghubog sa mga kabataan, upang sila
ay magkaroon ng magandang kinabukasan.

Sumasaiyo,
Gio Alonzo
