DepEd to hire teachers by qualification and residency


The Department of Education (DepEd) is set to hire teachers based on their qualifications and residency.

Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Francis Ceasar Bringas said this part of the revised guidelines in the hiring of Teacher 1 positions in the Department of Education (DepEd) in line with Basic Education Reform Agenda of the government to improve the country’s educational system.In an interview with Bringas by the local media, he clarified that while localization in the hiring of teacher applicants by the DepEd applies, the hiring is now based on the highest category where the teacher applicants are registered.

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.
