There’s no more question why you are on this page and why you want to apply for the Teacher 1 position. We can’t deny the fact that the salary of teachers teaching in the public school is higher than those who teach in most private schools. Plus, when you work as a public servant, you are also entitled to security of tenure. Once you are hired, rest assured that you’ve finally got your job until the day of your retirement unless you violate some rules and get dismissed. These are just some of the reasons why a lot of professional teachers especially the young ones, do apply for a job in public schools and hope to be a part of the RQA (Registry of Qualified Applicants).

DEPED TEACHER 1 ONLINE APPLICATION AND HIRING PROCESS
The hiring process is based on pointing and ranking system. You will be scored based on your qualifications and performance during the application process. The higher your rank is, the more chance you have in getting hired immediately.
It is important to inquire about the application process of the division first. Remember that different divisions have their way of selecting qualified applicants so visit the school of your prospect and ask the school head or the officer in charge of collecting application documents about the application period.
2. ONLINE APPLICATION
DepEd requires you to accomplish the online application to encode your details in their system. To register online, use your current and valid email address.
- To achieve this, you may visit this page: http://application.deped.gov.ph
- You must get any of the following ID’s ready for access once you begin the online application: TIN (tax identification number), Unified Multi-purpose ID (UMID), Postal ID, SSS ID, PhilHealth ID, or Passport.
- Regularly check your email for the verification notice within the next 48 hours.
- Update your Persona Data Sheet Online.
- Once your email address is confirmed and once you have accomplished filling out the Personal Data Sheet, your applicant number will appear.
- Get your applicant number as you will be asked to write them on a blank typewriting paper when you submit your application.
- We suggest that you write or print your applicant number on a typewriting paper and attach them in your application folder.
3. SUBMISSION OF APPLICATION FOLDER
Submit your application (all the required documents attached in a white folder) to the school you prefer to teach. These documents will be double-checked in front of you so be prepared with your original or supporting documents. You can also send your application to the division’s office, but the typical flow of application starts by submitting your application to the head of the public school
For Elementary Teachers:
If you are an elementary teacher, you have to submit your application to the head or principal of the elementary school which is nearest to the place where you live. It is because of the provision of R.A. No. 8190 known as the Localization Law which let teachers and other government employees to be assigned to a place near where they reside.
4. WAITING FOR ANNOUNCEMENT
You were told to wait for the announcement about the schedule of these three critical processes you have to undergo before getting hired:
- Demonstration teaching
- English Proficiency Test
The date, time, and venue of the process mentioned above will be announced to you through call or text message by the person-in-charge. To make sure you keep updated of the dates, you can get or ask for the contact number of the one in charge of receiving the application.
Make sure you appear on the date of interview. The DepEd prioritizes no one. You have to follow the dates they scheduled strictly.
DEPED TEACHER INTERVIEW TIPS:
- Dress neatly and adequately, make yourself presentable to leave a good impression.
- The interview will go quickly. Teachers in TeacherPH Facebook Group discussed that you would only have 2-5 minute interview, but it varies from division to division. Remember that there are many applicants and your first resort is to look different in a way that is acceptable.
- Practice answering the possible questions that might be asked.
- Project as a smart and cunning personality to the interviewer.
WHAT IS A GROUP INTERVIEW?
FYI, there are divisions which cannot handle a large number of applicants, so they don’t interview the applicants one by one. They instead do the group interview. Now for you to garner many points and to impress the panel, make sure that you volunteer first to answer or that you provide them with a unique and honest answer.
Try to think of solutions which is not typical but practical. That way, you will win the panel’s approval.
If you are a teacher with timid personality, group interview sounds an enormous hassle. But you have no choice but to undergo this process. After all, you are a teacher and so you must learn how to present and to compose yourself in front of a group or many people as you will be doing it so once you are hired. Try practicing now and participate in activities that will help you boost your confidence in facing people (e.g., participate in workshops, volunteer to be the presenter during seminars or training, etc.).
After the interview, wait for the announcement about the demo teaching.
6. DEMONSTRATION TEACHING
Again, demonstration teaching is done in different ways in different divisions. If there are many applicants, expect that your demo teaching will not last that long, but it is still best to prepare.
DEPED DEMONSTRATION TEACHING TIPS:
- Write a good demonstration lesson plan and practice to execute it very well.
- The Visual Aid must be interesting and appropriate to the topic.
- The use of Audio-Visual Material is highly recommended.
- Make sure you know your major very well. It is highly possible that you do an impromptu demo teaching in which the panel will ask what your field of specialization is and gives you the topic to discuss. You will only have a few minutes then to teach them the subject they have chosen for you. So be prepared.
- However, in some schools, especially those which are located in the city, you are most likely expected to use powerpoint presentation and audio-visual materials. Being creative is the key.
- Think of some ways on how to be lively during your demo. Panels are easily impressed with those who can establish a connection to them so make sure you have an exciting motivation activity.
- Your good command of the language can also impress the panels.
- Less talk, less mistake. Always remember that if you are not sure of what to say, better answer shortly. There is no room for errors when you are facing the panels so, be very well-prepared!
- After the demo teaching, wait for the announcement of the schedule of the English Proficiency Test.
7. ENGLISH PROFICIENCY TEST
All the applicants in the division will take this test at the same time. Remember that most of the content of this exam is reading comprehension.
If you want to know more about the exam, these links will give you information on what the test is about and how to ace it.
- How to Pass the DepEd English Proficiency Test (EPT)
- 2020 DepEd English Proficiency Test (EPT) Reviewer
- Download 2020 DepEd EPT Reviewer for Android Devices
8. WAIT FOR THE RELEASE OF REGISTRY OF QUALIFIED APPLICANTS (RQA) LIST
It might take one to three months or more. The result will be posted on the bulletin board of the division’s office or social media. It may be sent to your email too or may be displayed on the information board of the school where you submitted your application.
Being in the RQA list doesn’t guarantee that you can immediately get hired and start working in the school you desire to teach. If you are not on top of the list, you will be called later to report for they prioritize those who got higher points during the application process but rest assured that there’s a job waiting for you. Just wait. It takes time.
If you are in the bottom of the RQA list and haven’t got a call, try to follow-up your application by calling the division’s office or the school where you submitted your application.
DEPED TEACHER 1 EVALUATION AND SELECTION PROCEDURE AND CRITERIA
For Elementary and Junior High School
1. Education – 25%
It is computed by evaluating your academic achievement in college. This is done by calculating the general weighted average of your entire subjects with their corresponding units. You get 25 points, which is the highest if your general weighted average is 99-100% or a 1.00. If it is 97.75-98.75 or 1.10, you get 24 points and so on.
For those who graduated with a non-education degree but wish to apply as public school teachers, yours shall also be computed by getting your college GWA. This will be combined with the GWA of your 18 education units. This means to say that you can apply only if you have taken 18 units in education. A corresponding transmutation table will be constructed for those who have a grading system other than the ones mentioned earlier.
2. Teaching experience – 10%
You will be given one point for every year that you taught in a pre-school, elementary and secondary in both private and public schools prior to your application. However, if you taught for 15 years already, it is still counted as 10 points.
3. Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) rating – 10%
If your LET rating is 87% or higher, you get the maximum 10 points. If it is in the range of 85%-86%, you get 9 points and so on.
4. Experiential learning course-5%
This includes field study or practice teaching. The maximum points given to teacher-applicants here is 5 points.
5. Specialized training and skills-5%
This should be supported with documents. Besides, the said training should have lasted for a week. If less than a week, it is not counted. You will also be asked to demonstrate that particular skill. If you have that specialized training in sports music, journalism, theater arts and information, and communication technology, then you get the points provided you satisfy the requirements mentioned earlier.
6. Interview – 10%
Your personality and potential are measured here. Be alert, self-confident, and poised throughout the interview. Take note of your appearance and voice projection. The way you present ideas, judgment and decisions are also taken note of. Don’t be rattled when you are asked a barrage of questions. Show that you are not easily stressed out.
7. Demonstration teaching – 20%
As pointed out earlier, prepare a well-written lesson plan. Show that you can manage the classroom well. Deliver the lesson in such a way that every student will be engrossed to what is transpiring in the room. The evaluators will likely give you a high score if your students get a 100% mastery level during your demonstration teaching.
8. Communication skills – 15%
You are given points here based on the result of your English proficiency test.
If you have been contemplating to apply as a public school teacher in the Philippines, now is the right time to start applying. I hope this hub will guide you through your application.
