DEPED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES FOR TEACHERS AND SCHOOL LEADERS FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2020-2023
Pursuant to DepEd Order (DO) No. 001, s. 2020 titled Guidelines for NEAP Recognition of Professional Development Programs and Courses for Teachers and School Leaders, the Department of Education (DepEd), through the National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP), issues the DepEd Professional Development (PD) Priorities for Teachers and School Leaders for SY 2020-2023.
The PD Priorities shall support the realization of the Department’s goal of continuous upskilling and reskilling of teachers and school leaders that will result in better learning outcomes.
The three-year PD Priorities shall be drawn from the Philippines Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST), while the PD Priorities for school leaders –school heads and supervisors– shall be drawn from the Philippines Professional Standards for School Heads (PPSSH), and the Philippines Professional Standards for Supervisors (PPSS), respectively.
The three-year PD Priorities shall adhere to the provisions defined in Item VI, Nos. 16-18 of DO 001, s. 21020. Among others, the policy states that PD Priorities shall allow flexibility for specific local needs, priorities, and emerging developments in teacher and school leader professional development.
The PD Priorities reflect the needs assessment from the focus group discussion conducted by NEAP with various units of the Department. They are intended to provide DepEd units and Learning Service Providers guidance in the development of proposals that are responsive to present DepEd needs. However, NEAP may consider proposals, not under the priority list, provided their importance or urgency is established in the application.
The PD Priorities are suited within the NEAP PD Process Flow shown in Figure 1.
The list of PD Priorities for Teachers and School Leaders for SY 2020-2023 is provided in the enclosure. In addition to the enclosure, professional development programs or courses directly supporting the effective operationalization of DepEd’s Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) in light of COVID-19, shall also be given priority for School Year 2020-2021.
