Gemma M. Ledesma, Schools Division Superintendent, conducted the Division Training on the Management of School-Based Training and Development at Bacolod Pavillon Hotel on October 17-19, 2012.
The training has adopted the policy and guidelines on the design and implementation of training and development programs to capacitate DepEd personnel in all levels, in order to address the increasing proficiency demands and expectations in the field, including the change in the curriculum.
The undertaking will further allow the above-identified personnel to assure quality implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the training and design systems at the school level. The first two systems involving the Training and Development Needs Assessment (TDNA) and the Professional Development Planning (PDP) were given depth in the discussions.
The concepts and steps identified were targeted to address the individual priority needs of teachers based on the results of National Competency-Based Teachers Standards (NCBTS) and Teachers Strength and Needs Assessment (TSNA), which will be undertaken by the teachers themselves.
The pool of competent speakers was headed by Clarissa G. Zamora, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent; Gladys Amylaine D. Sales, OIC Education Supervisor in Science and Technology and principal of Luisa Medel National High School; Dr. Luis Servinas and Ms. Lowelyn Escalona, Public School District Supervisors; Juvy Talimodao, principal of Fr. Gratian Murray Integrated School; and Ellen Dela Cruz, OIC principal of Jovito Sayson National High School (Handumanan NHS-Extension).
The participants collaborated ideas and joined in the engaging activities while seriously considering the impact of the program’s implementation especially in the development of 21st Century learners.
Ms. Clarissa G. Zamora further encouraged each school head to form and develop a School-Based Training Development Team, to maximize the participation of the workforce in the implementation and monitoring of the programs of the Department of Education.* (LDAsignacion)
