With reference to DO No. 24, s. 2020, the National Adoption and Implementation of the Philippine Professional Standards for School Heads (PPSSH), the BHROD has commenced its preparatory work to align the competency assessment and examination with the standards set by the PPSSH.
As DepEd moves towards competency-based HR, the NQESH will remain its primary mechanism to safeguard and gauge the competency and quality of the aspiring school leaders in DepEd schools.
In view thereof, please be informed that the NQESH shall resume this year (FY 2021). The schedule and other details related to it shall be announced in the second quarter of 2021.
Immediate and widest dissemination of this Memorandum is desired.
