DOLE URGED LICENSED TEACHERS WHO WORK AS OFWS ABROAD: TEACH HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES


The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)  has an appealed to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who are licensed teachers--- return to the Philippines and practice their profession as public school teachers.  This is in line with the Dole’s OFW reintegration program called “Sa ’Pinas, Ikaw ang Ma’am/Sir,”  allowing OFWs who are Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) passers to apply and be employed by the Department of Education (DepEd) as teachers.  “We aim to provide decent and sustainable work for returning OFWs as public school teachers,” Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said.         OFWs who returned to the Philippines in the last three years and had teaching experience in the past five years will be covered by the program.  For those who have no teaching experience or those whose teaching experience was interrupted for more than past five years, they can undergo a refresher course online.     Those interested may check www.nrco.dole.gov.ph. Online application forms are available at http://tiny.cc/ofwletpassers.  The DOLE’s National Reintegration Center for OFWs implements the program with the DepEd, Professional Regulation Commission, Commission on Higher Education, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and the Philippine Normal University.  Bello noted that the OFW reintegration program has been a good source of public school teachers for the DepEd. “It has helped ease the country’s insufficient supply of public school teachers especially in the provinces and remote areas,” he said.  The program has also reunited several OFW families after years of separation.      DOLE regional director Exequiel Sarcauga confirmed that a total of 19 OFWs in Central Visayas have benefited from the program which was also designed to “reverse out migration by enhancing their skills.”   The new SPIMS beneficiaries formerly worked as teachers and household service workers in Thailand, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and Turkey.  Sarcauga added the beneficiaries are given Teacher 1 positions after having passed and complied with all the requirements with Salary Grade 11.  Five of the former OFWs  from Cebu are now teaching in  public schools of Cebu City, Madridejos, Borbon and Lilo-an in Cebu.   14 beneficiaries, who are residents of Bohol, are now deployed in public elementary and high schools in Dagohoy, Trinidad, Danao, Tubigon, Loay, Cortes, Lila, Carmen, President Carlos P. Garcia, Talibon and Mabini in Bohol.   ©2017 THOUGHTSKOTO





It is a sad truth that some of our licensed teachers grab the role of being a babysitter or a domestic helper just to go abroad and provide for their family. Now, they can go home and do the work they love-- teaching, at the convenience of their hometown, with adequate income, without the need of working overseas.
