The Institute for Labor Studies will conduct a tracer study for the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration’s (OWWA) Programs: (1) Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP) and (2) Skills for Employment Scholarship Program (SESP) for the year 2015. In view of this, it is deemed necessary to hold a training workshop on conducting tracer study.
In line with the research agenda of the institute, a two day training-workshop was conducted on February 16 and 17 at the DOLE Migration Information Resource Center (MIRC). The workshop seeks to build the capacity of ILS technical staff in designing, developing and implementing tracer study. The workshop likewise intends to provide a venue for information dissemination and shed light on the technical options and substantial nuances for conducting a tracer study.
The workshop was attended by 15 ILS technical staffs along with the invited resource persons, Ms. Maria Praxedes Peña, Ms. Plenee Grace Castillo and Ms. Madeline Cabauatan. The resource persons gave presentations on various topics, including a review of concepts in statistics, quantitative research sampling designs, methods of data collection, and the means of conducting field surveys.
This document, which presents the highlights of the training-workshop, is divided in to three (3) parts: 1) the background, which provides the context and objectives of the project; 2) the summary of technical presentations; and the 3) highlights of the consultation with the resource persons.
