I. Historical Background

A. Legal Basis

Republic Act No. 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991 guarantees and promotes the autonomy of local government units and ensures their fullest development as self-reliant communities and effective partners in development and progress.

The code encourages Local Government Units to engage in ventures other than their traditional mandate in pursuance of genuine people empowerment.

The provincial government of Bulacan, realizing the potential of its human resource whose literacy rate is already 98% in 1989 endeavored to develop an alternative tertiary institution for the less privileged Bulakeno. The result of these efforts is the Bulacan Polytechnic College (BPC).

Republic Ac No. 7796 also known as the Technical Education and Skills development Act of 1994 mandates the development of tertiary education for human resource capability building and encourages private and public sector partnership in developing tertiary education.

The provincial government of Bulacan, in a move to further institutionalize the development mission of the BPC approved its charter on September 29, 1997 by virtue of Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution No. 97-550. This further defined the purpose of providing vocational and technical instruction and training in entrepreneurship and technical education. This also gave the college a corporate identity and defined the existence of a Board of Trustees consisting of fifteen (15) members who shall composed of the following through its 2012 revised charter dated February 12, 2013, by virtue of Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution No. 043-T'13:

B. History

The Present Bulacan Polytechnic College (BPC) was originally known as the Bulacan Public Community College (BPCC). It was established upon the approval of the Secretary of Education on June 8,1971 and started its operations in 1972. With a total of 44 enrollees, two courses were initially offered from 1972 to 1974; the two-year Junior Secretarial Course with 15 students and the General Education Course with 29 students. From 1975 to 1993, there were no enrollees to the General Education Course. Between these years the Steno-typing Course was offered instead. In 1994, due to low enrollees turnout both General Education and stenotyping courses were phased out. The Advent of computer technology in the early 90’s and the need to respond to the academic requirements of the labor market necessitated the inclusion of Basic Computer Literacy in the curriculum in 1994.

The Bulacan Public Community College (BPCC) was renamed Bulacan Polytechnic College (BPC) by virtue of Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution No. 97-550, dated September 29, 1997. Consequently, it was authorized by the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to offer the two-year Computer Secretarial, the two-year Computer Technician, and the two-year Entrepreneurship in Business Technology through the TESDA Order No. 60.s. 1997, issued on November 24, 1997.
