Policy Notes
Focus Area(s):
PN 2023-22

Written for the Second Congressional Commission on Education and based on existing research, this Policy Note looks at the current state of teacher education and development in the Philippines. It finds serious issues such as underperforming teacher education institutions (TEIs), inadequate and often misguided professional development systems, and an unclear career progression track. It recommends ensuring that pre-service teacher quality is sustained and translated into in-service teaching quality. Specifically, it urges the government to incentivize teacher education, address TEI quality issues, implement professional development plans responsive to teachers needs, and develop coherent and integrated pre-service and in-service training systems.
