Beyond Skills, A Better Life
“My technical skills got me started (or growing) in my career. It’s my character that got me this far,” is a recurring theme of the thousands of stories of the people MFI has crossed paths with.
For more than 40 years, MFI Polytechnic Institute Incorporated (the then Meralco Foundation Inc. and MFI Foundation, Inc.) has forged on to rise to the challenge of providing relevant technical and vocational education and training (TVET) to equip young people and working professionals with the right set of skills and behavior so that they can succeed in life.
We cannot fully predict the future. So our programs focus on technologies that are building blocks of future innovation in automation and controls, automotive, electronics, computer and information technology, electrical, refrigeration, and metal trades. No matter what the future brings, we believe that with strong fundamentals and genuine love for learning, our graduates will thrive wherever they are in the world.
Skill development does not rest with the hands alone, but involves one’s head and heart. With polytechnic as an approach, MFI combines theory and practical learning in simulated and actual work environments. This way, learners gain essential concepts and principles and fundamental skills with their hands, head, and heart.
It takes a village to educate a child and even adults. As an educational institution, we know we need strong support systems to stay relevant. Our students need strong support systems too to achieve their life goals. So we collaborate with parents, alumni, like-minded organizations, employers and employer groups. It is with gratitude that employers provide our students immense opportunities for work immersion, internship, and employment.
We have come a long way and we have a long way to go. As long as there is a young adult or a working professional who has a vision to better himself or his life, who wants to learn a skill or two, MFI Polytechnic Institute will be there as a supportive learning partner.
