DepEd opens new teaching positions like Teacher IV, V, VI, VII and Master Teacher V
President Rodrigo R. Duterte approved the Expanded Career Progression System for Public School Teacher.
“The expanded career progression system for public school teachers is hereby established to promote professional development and career advancement among public school teachers, and define the career lines of teachers within the public school system, specifically in the elementary and secondary levels, including the Senior High School,” the order states.
“The System shall complement other career pathways for professional teachers outside the public basic education school system, as may be defined by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), and provide for equivalence in duties, recognition, and compensation for teachers choosing a career line.”
This will create new career opportunities for deserving teachers.
Under EO No. 174, the following will be the classes in the Classroom Teaching Career Line: Master Teacher I; Master Teacher II; Master Teacher III; Master Teacher IV; and Master Teacher V.
The classes in the School Administration Career Line will be School Principal I, School Principal II, School Principal III, and School Principal IV.
Duterte’s order will take effect “immediately after publication in the Official Gazette or in a newspaper of general circulation.”
