ORT establishes first Israeli training programme for Filipino educators E-mail

A delegation of teachers and principals from Davao City landed last month in Israel to learn innovative teaching methods from the ORT Research and Development Center in Tel Aviv.

ORT was founded in 1949 as a network of vocational schools, and is today the leading educational network of comprehensive schools in Israel, specialising in the hightech and science fields.

Philippine Ambassador to Israel Nathaniel G. Imperial and the CEO of ORT-Israel Zvi Peleg attended the signing ceremony along with a delegation of educators from Davao City, the country’s third -largest city. The agreement between Davao and ORT-Israel has been developing over the past 18 months in partnership with the Pass-it-Forward organisation, founded by Shmuel Weiss. It includes innovative Israeli science and technology educational programmes developed by ORT Israel that will be exported to thousands of local Filipino students.
