Education secretary Armin Luistro Press statement :
“the PEPT aims to retrieve out-of-school youth (OSY) and place them in the formal school system.”
“Through PEPT, we would validate and accredit knowledge and skills in academic areas gained through informal and non-formal means,” Luistro said, adding that the PEPT will eventually pave the way for the OSY’s “re-entry into formal schooling, job promotion, job training and employment.”
Those who can avail of the test, DepEd noted, are dropouts from elementary and secondary schools for at least one year and those who never attended a formal school but can read and write, or those presently employed but need to upgrade their academic level whether elementary or high school.
