TWG for Teacher Induction Program undergoes onboarding activities
Members of the Technical Working Group (TWG) for the Department of Education (DepEd) Teacher Induction Program (TIP) underwent a series of onboarding and capability-building sessions to prepare them for the work in enhancing the program, including the development of induction modules.
RCTQ provided technical assistance to the National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP) in organizing the online sessions in cooperation with the Teacher Education Council (TEC) on May 26 and May 29—the first two of a series of onboarding activities.
The proposed restructured outline of TIP courses and modules was presented to the participants to allow them to discern which ones they could knowledgeably write. They were capacitated them on the guidelines in writing the modules while discussing their roles and engagement with the program.
Through a memorandum signed by DepEd Undersecretary Atty. Nepomuceno Malaluan, the TWG is composed of 17 members representing teachers, master teachers, supervisors, and representatives from some bureaus and offices from the DepEd central office. Eight of the members were convined in February 2020, while the remaining nine came on board in May 2020. RCTQ has been assisted by its partner research center, the SiMERR Research Centre at the University of New England Australia represented by Deputy Director Dr. Joy Hardy, in the onboarding of TWG members.
The TIP will soon become one of the program offerings of the transformed National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP). The onboarding sessions oriented the TWG members on the NEAP recognition and accreditation guidelines.
DepEd 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.https://www.rctq.ph/?p=1536NewsNEAP,Teacher Induction Program
