Dear CHED,
Warm liberating greetings!
We are currently preparing our students for local and international internship. May we get any updates with SIPP and SIAP? Are these programs still under suspension or are HEIs now allowed to bring their students abroad for internship? If yes, may we know the most updated SIPP/SIAP guidelines?
Thank you so much.
