|Batch 5 of the Teacher Induction Program during the Closing Program.|
During the Closing Program, impressions from the participants acknowledge the current leadership and the reform agenda as truly for quality education. Inductees now believe that change is at hand. Recruitment is now based on merit and fitness and not anymore about "palakasan", the process clearer and faster. They are motivated to make a difference in the classroom. Aside from cognitive learning, participants also heard "testimonials" from successful professionals about their best teachers; and created rapport among themselves.
Some were emotional when they finally saw and hold their approved appointment. After years of waiting, LET passers are now truly prioritized.
The 5-day training is free. Accommodation and food are charged to DepEd-ARMM funds, and participants are also reimbursed their round trip transportation cost.
The training team have started preparatory work on the Batch 6 (Maguindanao) and Batch 7 (Lanao). They are just waiting for the completion of the transition from OIC period to the full-fledged 3-year term of RG Mujiv Hataman.
