DepEd Secretary approves NEAP Transformation Study 2 Report
“The time for reflection is already over,” said DepEd Secretary Leonor M. Briones after seeing the presentation of the NEAP Transformation Study 2 Report last February 21, 2019.
This after members of the task force to transform the National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP) presented to Sec. Leonor Magtolis Briones their recommendations on how to make this attached DepEd agency become a full academy that caters to teachers’ professional learning and development (L&D) needs, and one that serves as a key pillar in upgrading the quality of basic education in the country.
Developed by a team of experts engaged by RCTQ, the report includes a detailed design with organizational structures, position functions, and change management and transition plan for the new NEAP.
Underscoring the need for the transition activities to be done immediately, Briones signed DepEd Memo 019, s.2019 on February 21 placing NEAP under the direct supervision of the Office of the Secretary.
“We have been reflecting for many decades. We should start now because the problems and challenges are already here, now,” Briones added.
The presentation was attended by DepEd national and regional officials led by undersecretaries Atty. Nepomuceno Malaluan and Jesus Lorenzo Mateo, NEAP Director John Arnold Siena, RCTQ director Dr. Gina Gonong, Australian Embassy First Secretary Francesca Lawe-Davies, BEST Program Team Leader Dr. Alison Atwell and other members of the task force.https://www.rctq.ph/?p=21NewsNEAP Transformation
