Workshop held to enhance DepEd’s Teacher Induction Program
RCTQ is providing technical assistance in the review and enhancement of DepEd’s induction program for beginning public school teachers—the Teacher Induction Program (TIP)—which will soon become one of the program offerings of the transformed National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP).
At a workshop on 26-28 February 2020 at the Philippine Normal University, RCTQ and its partner research center, the SiMERR National Research Centre of the University of New England Australia, oriented and capacitated the technical working group for the new TIP.
Dr. Joy Hardy, SiMERR Deputy Director and RCTQ Deputy Director Dr. Jennie Jocson led the participants in developing a work plan and timeline of activities leading to the enhanced TIP policy, systems, and learning resource packages. They helped them finalize and agree on the design of the TIP curriculum and its subsystems.
Represented at the workshop were the the Bureau of Human Resource and Organizational Development – Human Resource Development Department (BHROD-HRDD) led by OIC Director Ms. Jennifer Lopez, Bureau of Learning and Delivery (BLD), Bureau of Curriculum and Development (BCD), and NEAP led by Director John S. Siena and represented by Ms. Ana Sol Reyes and Mr. Jerson Capuyan. Prior to the NEAP transformation, TIP was managed by the Teacher Education Council (TEC), which was also represented at the workshop to provide valuable inputs.
Participants discussed and prioritized specific directions leading to the desired outputs for the TIP on policy, program orientation and mentoring. They brainstormed on the different needs of the new teacher inductees which led to an initial profiling of teachers to help redesign the TIP.
The workshop also enabled the TWG members to be oriented on the NEAP recognition and accreditation guidelines, and capacitated them on the guidelines in writing the modules while discussing their roles and engagement with the program.
DepEd Department Order No. 11, s. 2019, signed by Sec. Leonor Magtolis Briones, provided guidelines for the implementation of NEAP transformation where RCTQ was identified as a partner in providing technical assistance.
The TWG is composed of Ms. Donnabel Bihasa (TEC); Ms. Chinita Tolentino (PSDS); Mr. Angelo Uy (BHROD); Mr. Ian Harvey Claros (teacher); Jeannette Alvarez (Head Teacher III); Khristian Ross Pimentel (Master Teacher I); Jerome Hilario (Master Teacher II); Warren Quisada (DepEd-BCD); and Ricardo Dionisio, (DepEd-BLD).https://www.rctq.ph/?p=1068NewsNEAP,NEAP Transformation,Teacher Induction Program
