AMENDED QUALIFICATION STANDARDS FOR THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHING POSITIONS IN THE TECHNICAL-VOCATIONAL-LIVELIHOOD TRACK AND OTHER CLARIFICATIONS ON THE HIRING GUIDELINES

I. Rationale

Faithful to the merit and fitness principle of the Civil Service Doctrine of the Constitution and the Department of Education’s (DepEd) thrust to enhance the quality of basic education, the Department issued DepEd Order (DO) No. 3, s. 2016 entitled Hiring Guidelines for Senior High School (SHS) Teaching Positions Effective School Year (SY) 2016-2017, DO No. 27, s. 2016 entitled Qualification Standards for Senior High School (SHS) Teaching Positions in the Department of Education (DepEd), DO No. 32, s. 2016 entitled Addendum to DepEd Order No. 3, s. 2016, and DO No. 49, s. 2016 entitled Guidelines on the Hiring of Contractual (Full-Time and Part-Time) Teachers in Senior High School aimed at defining the application, selection, and appointment process of Senior High School (SHS) teachers as well as establishing professional standards and evaluation criteria to ensure that highly competent individuals with the appropriate qualifications and specializations are hired to teach in SHSs.

Pursuant to the recently issued Civil Service Commission (CSC) Resolution No. 1701192 on the Amended Qualification Standards (QS) for the SHS Teaching Positions in the Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) Track and CSC Resolution No. 1701009 on the 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions, and other relevant issuances, there is a need to amend and clarify specific provisions in the existing recruitment, selection, and hiring guidelines for SHS teachers, as stipulated in the DepEd Orders enumerated above.

II. Scope

This Order provides for the amended Qualification Standards (QS) for the SHS teaching positions in the Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) track. It also clarifies specific provisions of the previously issued guidelines on recruitment, selection, and appointment of SHS teachers in all public SHSs, particularly on the professional eligibility and documentary requirements as well as the application and appointment procedures.

III. Definition of Terms

In accordance with the CSC Resolution No. 1701009 dated June 16, 2017 on the 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions, the following terms and definitions are added to Item III (Definition of Terms) of DO No. 3, s. 2016: 1

  1. Provisional refers to an appointment issued to an appointee to a teaching position who meets all the requirements of the position except the Eligibility but only in the absence of a qualified eligible actually available who is willing to accept the appointment, as certified by the Schools Division Superintendent. It shall not be effective beyond the school year during which it was issued1. The appointment shall be subject to reappointment (renewal).
  2. Contractual refers to an appointment issued to an appointee to a teaching position who shall teach specialized subjects in secondary education on a part-time basis. The inclusive period shall be indicated on the appointment for purposes of crediting services. Appointees to contractual teaching positions shall not be required to possess RA No. 1080 (Teacher) Eligibility.

IV. Policy Statement

The DepEd hereby adopts this Order to amend the QS for the SHS teaching positions in the TVL track, and to clarify specific provisions of previously issued guidelines on the recruitment, selection, and appointment of SHS teachers. These guidelines shall provide guidance to all DepEd offices and schools, teacher applicants, and other stakeholders on the hiring process of SHS teachers.

V. Procedures

A. Amended Qualification Standards (QS) for the SHS Teaching Positions in the TVL Track

1. The CSC has promulgated Resolution No. 1701192 dated August 7, 2017 on the Amended Qualification Standards (QS) for the SHS Teaching Positions in the Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) Track. Enclosed are the following documents:

a. Summary Table of the Amended QS for the SHS teaching positions in the TVL track; and

b. CSC Resolution No. 1701192 dated August 7, 2017.

Hiring to the said positions should meet the requirements stated in the amended QS, subject to existing guidelines on the appointment and promotion of teaching positions.

The amended QS shall be applied to appointments issued to teaching positions during SY 2016-2017 which have been pending with the CSC. The Schools Division Office (SDO) shall also be allowed to file a Motion for Reconsideration to their respective CSC Regional Offices (RO) on the disapproved/invalidated appointments prior to the approval of the amended QS, or an Appeal to the Commission proper if the Motion for Reconsideration has already been denied by the CSC RO prior to the approval of the amended QS.

B. Professional Teachers RA No. 1080 Eligibility

2. In accordance with CSC Resolution No. 010005 dated January 03, 2001, Professional Teachers (Secondary Level) RA No. 1080 Eligibility can be considered appropriate for appointment to teacher positions in both elementary and secondary levels, however, the Professional Teachers (Elementary Level) RA No. 1080 Eligibility is appropriate only for appointment to teacher positions in the elementary level. Pursuant to Republic Act (RA) No. 10533, also known as the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013, secondary education consists of junior high school (JHS) education and SHS education. Thus, only Professional Teachers (Secondary Level) RA No. 1080 Eligibility shall be considered appropriate for appointment to teacher positions in the SHS.

C. Application Process and Documentary Requirements

3. The online application through the Department’s online system (application.deped.gov.ph) shall no longer be necessary. An application letter supported by the documents enumerated in Item V.2 of DO No. 3, s. 2016 shall be submitted to the SDO or the school head of the SHS where a teacher shortage or vacancy exists.

4. Additional requirements for TVL teacher-applicants, stipulated in Item V.2 of DO No. 3, s. 2016, are amended as follows:

a. Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) National Certificate (NC) of at least the same level as the course to be taught in the subject to be taught (e.g. NC-II in SMAW to teach SMAW-NC-II). Exception to this rule is given to applicants to courses with no NCs (e.g. Handicraft courses).

b. Certified photocopy of Trainers Methodology Certificate (TMC) I, if available.

5. Pursuant to DOLE-DepEd-TESDA-CHED Joint Guidelines on the Implementation of the Labor and Management Component of RA No. 10533, displaced faculty from Higher Educational Institutions (HEI) or Technical-Vocational Institutions (TVI) shall submit the following requirement in addition to the certified true copy of Certification of Status of Employment/Service Record from HEI/TVI as required in Item V.2 of DO No. 3, s. 2016:

a. Certificate of Displacement duly signed by the authorized representative of the HEI/TVI (template attached as Annex A).

D. Hiring of Contractual Teachers

6. In accordance with the revised definition of Contractual appointment as provided in this Order, DO No. 49, s. 2016 is hereby rescinded to cover only hiring of contractual teachers on a part-time basis.

As provided in Item X. l.b.iii (Determination of Rank and Salary to be Offered to Qualified Applicants) of DO No. 3, s. 2016, a contractual appointment may be issued to an applicant who obtains a rating of 70 and above but opts to have a contractual appointment; and an applicant who lacks the Eligibility requirement but obtains a rating between 65.00 and 69.99, and in the event that there are still positions to be filled after the SDO has exhausted its Registry of Qualified Applicants (RQA) and has already appointed eligible applicants who obtained 65.00 to 69.99 points; provided, however, that the contractual appointment to be issued is strictly on a part-time basis.

E. Teachers with Provisional Appointment

7. As provided in Item X.l.b.ii (Determination of Rank and Salary to be Offered to Qualified Applicants) of DO No. 3, s. 2016, a provisional appointment may be issued to an applicant who does not possess the Eligibility requirement but possesses all other requirements under the CSC-approved QS, and has obtained a rating of 70 and above. Pursuant to Section 8 of RA No. 10533, the Eligibility requirement must be obtained within five (5) years after the date of hiring. The following provisions are added to clarify previous provisions relating to teachers with provisional appointments:

a. Once a teacher with a provisional appointment acquires the Eligibility requirement within five (5) years after date of first hiring, the status of his/her appointment shall immediately be changed to permanent. The SDO shall facilitate the change in status of appointment to this effect.

b. If a teacher with a provisional appointment fails to acquire the Eligibility requirement with five (5) years after the date of first hiring, his/her item shall be deemed vacant, and the SDO must publish the said vacancy to allow new applicants to apply for the position.

c. A teacher with a provisional appointment shall be entitled to the same compensation and allowances received by permanent personnel, including membership in the GSIS, health insurance, employees’ compensation insurance, membership in PAG-IBIG Fund, vacation and sick leaves and the monetization, and payment of terminal leave benefits. Furthermore, since the effectivity of a provisional appointment is one (1) school year, defined in this Order as twelve (12) months with the date of appointment as the reckoning date, a teacher with a provisional appointment shall receive the aforementioned compensation and allowances during the summer break.

F. Hiring of DepEd Teachers from Elementary and Junior High School Level

8. For applicants who are already teaching with DepEd either in elementary or JHS, Item II.2 (Scope) of DO No. 3, s. 2016 is clarified as follows:

a. DO No. 66, s. 2007 entitled Revised Guidelines on the Appointment and Promotion of Other Teaching, Related Teaching and Non-Teaching Positions shall apply for applicants for Teacher I to III positions, and MEC Order No. 10, s. 1979 entitled Implementing Rules and Regulations for the System of Career Progression for Public School Teachers shall apply for applicants for Master Teacher I to IV positions, except for the provision on the Computation of Points of said Orders. Part VII (Evaluation Criteria and Computation of Points) as specified in DO No. 3, s. 2016 shall apply instead.

b. In accordance with Chapter 3 Item 8.4.2 of the Manual on Position Classification and Compensation, if a teacher is appointed to a position of equivalent rank or of the same salary grade as the previous position, the employee shall receive his/her present salary. To this effect, the Step Increment incurred by the teacher shall be carried over into his/her new position.

c. All appointments issued in violation of the Policy on the Three-Salary Grade Limitation on Promotion (quantum leap) shall be disapproved/invalidated, except when the promotional appointment falls within the purview of any of the exceptions enumerated in Section 97 of the 2017 Omnibus Rules on Appointments and Other Human Resource Actions. In the selection process, SDOs shall strictly observe these exceptions and provide reasonable justifications to avoid disapproval or invalidation of appointments.

VI. Monitoring and Evaluation

The Bureau of Human Resource and Organizational Development (BHROD) in the Central Office, Regional Human Resource Development Division (HRDD) in the Regional Offices, and the School Governance and Operations Division (SGOD) in the SDOs, shall monitor and evaluate the implementation of this Order. They shall continuously gather feedback and policy recommendations on the recruitment, selection, and hiring of SHS teachers from the concerned offices and stakeholders to further enhance the provisions of the DepEd hiring policies.
