The study focused on cooperative and collaborative learning approaches as the strategy in facilitating employees’ Gender and Development (GAD) Seminar- Workshop. It assessed participants’ awareness level on selected GAD laws, mandates, and issues before and after the Seminar-Workshop. Correlation of the participants’ awareness level along variables of sex, age, and subject departmental affiliation was considered. It also sought the perceived level of effectiveness of the cooperative and collaborative learning approaches along all training aspects. The study involved 52 employees or 57% of the actual GAD seminar participants on the post-assessment. It solely relied on data gathered through survey questionnaires treated by Mean and Pearson Product Moment Correlation for interpretation. The school employees were aware of GAD information “to some extent” with responses mean of 2.82 before the seminar was conducted, and raised to the moderate level with 4.01 responses mean after the event facilitated through Cooperative and Collaborative Learning Approaches. No significant relationship was found between awareness level with any of the variables reflecting r values lesser than 1.00, specifically .049; .161; and.022 along sex, age, and subject departmental affiliation respectively. Participants also perceived the extreme effectiveness of the strategy as reflected by a weighted mean of 4.26 on the training aspects- conduct of Spiritual Retreat and Renewal of Commitment; effecting Enjoyment of Leisure Time and Enhancement of Psycho-Social Skills; Coordination and Organization of Training Committees; and on delivering Gender and Development topics. The study recommends the cooperative and collaborative learning approaches to other institutions as a training methodology.
