The Department of Education (DepEd) is set to hire teachers based on their qualifications and residency.
Bringas said teacher applicants are now evaluated and assessed based on education, teaching experience, Licensure Exam for Teachers/Professional Board Examination for Teachers (PBET) rating, experiential learning course, specialized training, interview, demonstration teaching and communication skills and those who obtained 50 points and above are listed in the Registry of Qualified Applicants.
Registry A are those with 70 points and above; Registry B- 60 – 69 points ; Registry C- 55 – 59; and Registry D-50-54 points.
The cut-off score is only 50 points; hence Bringas discourages teacher applicants to apply if their points fall below 50. He explained that even if the teacher applicant is the only applicant in the locality, the localization in the hiring of teacher applicants no longer holds when he does not fall within the highest registry that is the Registry A and B.
In addition to the categorization of teacher applicants as basis in hiring new teachers for the Teacher 1 position, they are also required to submit their clearances particularly from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and their Voter’s Identification to prove their residence.
These said legal documents are submitted together with the usual bio data or resume showing the details of their educational background, their teaching experience related to their specialization, and other pertinent trainings that would support their points earned in their category.
