  1. This is an actual scenario in our school…Just a clarification only. We have an item available for t3 in our school. Currently t2 ako and applying for t3 since my competitor ako na dalawang t1 and it so happen na lamang ang isa ng maliit na puntos.. My question is Who would qualified for that position ang T1 ba or T2 kasi sa pagkakaalam ko ladderized nman. Waiting for the answer for this query. Salamat po..

  2. good day. Ask lng po if ang certificate before latest promotion ay pwede pa po bang gamitin for next promotion? Salamat sa makakasagot.

  3. Hello po. I need help regarding sa ranking ng teachers. Is there a required cut off of points for T2 to T3 promotion? Kumbaga when the T2 applicants cant reach this number of points eh kukuha ng promotable dun sa T1 applicants.

    Thank you po!

    • Good afternoon po ask ko lng din mag apply for promotion din po t2 to t3. I have 36 units with Compre and I would like to apply for t3 position po TNX

  4. Hindi ko alam kunh bakit hindi man lang makita ng policy makers ng Deped na ang napapaboran lang nga mga ERF at promotion ay ang mga teachers ng Core Subjects, Mapeh, Tle and Ap….bakit hindi nila makita amg kalagayan ng ESP teachers! A lot of ESP teachers are potential leaders and deserve to be promoted particularly as HT and Mt….the problem is 2 times lang ang contact hrs per week sa students..and u know what..Even sa large schools ay 3 to lang ang teachers dahil hindi kailangan ng madaming teachers sa esp..pano sila makakapag upgrade ng position nila as Ht and Mt…??? Diyos ko naman po..wake up naman po

  5. Need Clarification po…
    Regarding SEnior High School promotion of T-3.

    Is there any guidelines po ba,if for example,the item is available is T-3 Science Major, pwede bang e promote ibang major when there is also someone qualified for the position with the same major?Who is the priority since Science dn kailangan ng sch sa shs…same major ba dapat o hindi ang e promote,even there is waiting T-2 na nauna but different major?

    I need concrete answer if pwede ko ipaglaban at may karapatan din ako to apply for the positions even I am T-1, although my mga T-2 na sa SHS pero ibang subject?…

    I am on the ranklist also in SHS, my qualification is T-3 to MT-1.Currently im a Hybread Teacher to SHS …thanks you po sa makakasagot.

    • Wala po yan sa major….Position po ang inaapplyan. Pero Laderize po kc ang sinusunod. Pag may T2 applicant for T3 sila po ang priotity. pwede namn po ang T1 to T2 pag walang T2 to T3 applicant. if T1 ka at may T2 ng bakante and yopu applied for T3 na bakante din. Ibaba ka nila sa T2 at doon ka irarank. Based po ito sa experience ko. Ganun po xa.

  6. Hi good evening I just want to clarify po f cno po mas qualified po for d position of T3 promotion T1 po na wla pa po 2 years in the service at nkatapos po Ng 1 cycle lng po Ng RPMS o c T2 po na nka1 year Ng T2 pero Hindi po nkatapos Ng 1 cycle daw Ng RPMS becoz the date of appointment is September and the item to be filled is a natural vacancy po..maraming salamat po sa pagsagot kz naguguluhan din po km sa guidelines po salamat po.

  7. Good day!
    I just wanted to ask this scenario. If there is only one Teacher II position in the school and there will be a vacancy for Teacher III by retirement, who will fill in the vacancy? Is it automatic that the TII will get the item? Or is there a need for open ranking where Teacher I will compete with TII for the item? If TI will get a higher points than the TII upon ranking, the TI who got the highest points will take the item?
    Thank you.
