The Department of Education (DepEd) continues to seek more career opportunities for teachers – especially in creating new teaching positions – in line with its commitment to provide them career and financial stability.
DepEd, on Tuesday, May 11, said that it is “continuously working” with the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and Civil Service Commission (CSC) in revising the Career Progression System for Public School Teachers.
“We are continuously finding ways to give our teachers the necessary benefits and assistance they should be receiving with or without the pandemic,” Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said. “We are committed to help them, especially in these trying times,” she added.
If approved, DepEd said that the teaching career line will have items for Teacher IV, V, VI, VII, and Master Teacher V.
DepEd explained that the career progression reform initiative seeks to “ensure more opportunities for career movement, professional growth, and, eventually, financial stability for high-performing and deserving teachers.”
