A snapshot of success. The National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP), which is motivated by a commitment to ensure and maintain training standards and the quality of training delivery, serves as the direct line of such goal in designing and recognizing Professional Development Programs (PDPs) for teachers, school leaders, teaching, and non-teaching personnel. It’s encouraging to note that the Schools Division Office of San Carlos City received recognition for having the most PDPs approved in the recently held Regional Office I, NEAP Quarterly meeting on September 16, 2022. Loud and proud, SDO San Carlos City got 16 NEAP recognized PDPs, and is still waiting for the additional 5 proposed PDPs to be validated. These NEAP recognized PDPs are extremely beneficial because they can be used as credit for promotions. Moreover, these PDPs are also up for PRC recognition, which, if approved, will allow for the crediting of some CPD units toward PRC license renewal.
To further capacitate the teaching and non-teaching personnel of SDO San Carlos City, the division office through the School Governance Operations Division, Human Resource Development continuously promotes the submission of Professional Development Programs and be NEAP-recognized. Moreover, these are evidently acknowledged through the regional memorandum.
