SPECIALIZED TRAINING ON CHILD LABOR FOR THE PHILIPPINE LABOR INSPECTORATE
Watching and Listening
In this activity participants go out on planned visits to accessible enterprises. These visits must be pre-arranged and planned very well, careful not to alert employers or owners about possible repercussions to them if child laborers are seen in their enterprises. Participants must be well-briefed on the objectives and procedural arrangements of the plant visits.

Processing of the
Visit Experience Participants come back from the plant visits with a variety of feelings, many of them very intense. This experience must be processed. Participants are encouraged to share with the class what they saw and what they felt during the visits to various workplaces. Then they are asked how they were able to apply observing, interviewing, and documenting skills, as well as the difficulties they encountered in using them. Participants must be helped to make sense of their feelings and to see the implications of these feelings to their being participants in the Child Labor Program. Processing must start from where they are. If these feelings are processed well, they can be powerful seeds for later commitment.
