Updated Senior High School Qualification Standards

Secretary Armin A. Luistro, Department of Education (DepEd) submitted to the Commission for approval the proposed Qualification Standards (QS) for the teaching positions for Senior High School (SHS) in the DepEd.

CSC Resolution No. 1600358

The Commission, through the Human Resource Policies and Standards Office, discussed with DepEd Assistant Secretary Jesus L.R. Mateo the comments on the submitted proposed Qualification Standards for teaching positions for Senior High School (SHS) which form as an attachment to the Hiring Guidelines for Senior High School Teaching Positions. Thus, on November 11, 2015, the DepEd submitted to the CSC-National Capital Region the said guidelines with the following proposed Qualification Standards for Senior High School (SHS) teaching positions:

Section 8 of Republic Act (RA) No. 10533, also known as the “Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013” provides, as follows:

“Section. 8. Hiring of Graduates of Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering and Other Specialists in Subjects With a Shortage of Qualified Applicants, Technical-Vocational Courses and Higher Education Institution Faculty. — Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 26, 27 and 28 of Republic Act No. 7836, otherwise known as the “Philippine Teachers Professionalization Act of 1994″, the DepEd and private education institutions shall hire, as may be relevant to the particular subject:

“(a) Graduates of science, mathematics, statistics, engineering, music and other degree courses with shortages in qualified Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) applicants to teach in their specialized subjects in the elementary and secondary education. Qualified LET applicants shall also include graduates admitted by foundations duly recognized for their expertise in the education sector and who satisfactorily complete the requirements set by these organizations: Provided, That they pass the LET within five (5) years after their date of hiring: Provided, further, That if such graduates are willing to teach on part-time basis, the provisions of LET shall no longer be required:

“(b) Graduates of technical-vocational courses to teach in their specialized subjects in the secondary education: Provided, That these graduates possess the necessary certification issued by the TESDA: Provided, further, That they undergo appropriate in-service training to be administered by the DepEd or higher education institutions (HEIs) at the expense of the DepEd;

“(c) Faculty of HEIs be allowed to teach in their general education or subject specialties in the secondary education: Provided, That the faculty must be a holder of a relevant Bachelor’s degree, and must have satisfactorily served as a full-time HEI faculty;

“(d) The DepEd and private education institutions may hire practitioners, with expertise in the specialized learning areas offered by the Basic Education Curriculum, to teach in the secondary level; Provided, That they teach on part-time basis only. For this purpose, the DepEd, in coordination with the appropriate government agencies, shall determine the necessary qualification standards in hiring these experts.”(underscoring supplied)

Section 22, Chapter 5, Title l-A, Book V of Executive Order No. 292 provides that:

(2) The establishment, administration and maintenance of qualification standards shall be the responsibility of the department or agency, with the assistance and approval of the Civil Service Commission and in consultation with the l/l/age and Position Classification Office.” (underscoring supplied)

Paragraph 3, Item No. 2, Part I – General Policies of CSC Resolution No. 030962 dated September 12, 2003 provides that “Agencies are encouraged to set specific or higher standards for their positions. These standards shall be submitted to the Commission for approval, and once approved, they shall be adopted by the Commission as qualification standards in the attestation of appointments of the agency concerned. ”

An evaluation of the above proposed Qualification Standards by the DepEd for the teaching positions in the SHS shows that they are generally higher than the set Qualification Standards in the 1997 Revised Qualification Standards Manual. Nevertheless, the amended Qualification Standards as proposed by the DepEd for the teaching positions in Senior High School are compliant with RA No. 10533 and with existing policies on QS for positions in government.

The Hiring Guidelines for SHS Teaching Positions issued by the DepEd shall include the specific provisions of RA No. 10533 and its Implementing Rules and Regulations on the selection and placement for SHS teaching positions.

WHEREFORE, the Commission RESOLVES to APPROVE the above-mentioned qualification standards for the teaching positions for Senior High School as proposed by the Department of Education.

The Commission FURTHER RESOLVES that the amended qualification standards shall be the bases of the Civil Service Commission in attesting appointments and in evaluating other personnel actions for the subject positions in the Department of Education.
