With its network of Regional Secretariats, the PEAC is providing logistics support by tapping its INSET infrastructure and designating selected PEAC Regional Secretariat host schools as the lead implementing institutions for the SHS training in October-November 2015 nationwide.

  • CHEd, as the lead agency, has worked with higher education institutions, namely the University of the Philippines (UP), Philippine Normal University (PNU), Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU), and De La Salle University (DLSU), in crafting the materials development framework and training design. The CHEd-PEAC SHS teachers’ training focuses on delivering the SHS core curriculum by building SHS teachers’ capacity in both content and pedagogy, and is open to all private HEIs and junior high schools that will offer SHS. In preparation for the teachers’ training, a facilitators’ camp for SHS trainers is scheduled on October 14-17, 2015. The facilitators will come from CHEd Centers of Excellence and FAAP-accredited colleges and universities.

PEAC supports education in Muslim Mindanao through CEAP-NABEI’s Madaris Volunteer Teachers Program

The Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) supported the Madaris Volunteer Teacher Program (MVP) through its Assistance to Programs and Initiatives to Reform Education (ASPIRE) program. The ASPIRE program provides support to private educational associations in the areas of capacity building, public policy and development, and institutional development.

Last June 25, 2015, the MVP had its missioning ceremony at the Tanghalang Michael Clark, Notre Dame University of Cotabato, Catabato City. DepEd Secretary Br. Armin Luistro FSC led the missioning of the twelve volunteers with a ceremonial distribution of bags. The volunteers will be deployed to Muslim communities to teach non-Islamic subjects in private Madaris schools. Also present at the event were Fr. Joel Tabora, S.J., Vice President of the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP) and PEAC Regional Program Director (RPD) for Region 11, Dr. Ombra Imam, President of the National Association for Bangsamoro Education, Inc. (NABEI), Fr. Charlie Inzon, OMI, President of Notre Dame University of Cotabato, and Ms. Doris F. Ferrer, Executive Director of the PEAC National Secretariat.

An executive session followed to engage with supervisors of NABEI member-schools and the discussion focused on the MVP and possible public- private partnerships in the Madrasah education. The MVP is a joint project of CEAP and NABEI.

Other beneficiaries of the PEAC ASPIRE program for 2015-2016 include the Coordinating Council of Private Educational Associates (COCOPEA), Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities (PACU), Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities (ACSCU), Philippine Association of Private Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAPSCU), Technical-Vocational Schools Association of the Philippines (TVSA), CEAP-CARAGA, and the Philippine Association for Teacher Education (PAFTE).

Attention All ESC Schools: Slot Allocations for 2015-2016

Slot allocations reflected in school ESC-IMS accounts as of today are final. With the limited number of new slots available this year on account of the ESC subsidy scheme's nearing the 1 million grantees target, additional slot requests received as of June 1, 2015 were evaluated and slots were allotted based on availability and the rationale for the request.

Following DepEd policy against the provision of additional slots after classes have started in June, requests that have not been granted as evidenced by the non-provision of such in the ESC-IMS accounts of concerned schools is final as of today.
