DBM Approves 5,000 Non-Teaching Positions in DepEd to Alleviate Teachers’ Workload

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has sanctioned the creation of 5,000 non-teaching positions within the Department of Education (DepEd) to ease the administrative burden on teachers. This decision aligns with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s commitment to prioritize the welfare of educators.

The DBM announced on Tuesday that DepEd has already issued DepEd Order No. 002, s. 2024, which formalizes the removal of administrative tasks from teachers, allowing them to concentrate more on quality instruction.

“Our educators already have their plates full. By approving the creation of 5,000 non-teaching positions, we aim to relieve teachers of administrative tasks and allow them to focus on quality instruction. This move will significantly benefit our educators and enhance the country’s education system,” DBM Secretary Amenah Pangandaman said in a statement.

The newly approved non-teaching positions are classified as Administrative Officer II, with a salary of Grade 11. These positions will be distributed across various regions, including the Cordillera Administrative Region, National Capital Region, Regions I, II, III, IV-A, IV-B, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, and the Caraga region.

This initiative reflects the government’s ongoing efforts to improve the educational landscape by ensuring that teachers are not overburdened with tasks that divert their attention from teaching. By alleviating these administrative duties, the move aims to enhance the overall quality of education and support the professional growth and well-being of teachers.

Secretary Pangandaman emphasized that this step is part of fulfilling President Marcos Jr.’s campaign promise to prioritize the welfare of teachers, thereby strengthening the foundation of the nation’s educational system.
