Are you an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) who works abroad as a teacher? Do you want to go back to the Philippines? Good news because there are teaching jobs waiting for you.
According to Freya Palad, National Reintegration Center (NRCO) for OFW’s Region 3, “Returnees will be employed as Teacher I. Through an online refresher course for the position, returning teachers will be retrained. This will update the teacher of skills and knowledge of the present day educational practice.”
With the NRCO program “Sa ‘Pinas, Ikaw ang Ma’am/Sir,” teachers who passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) can stay here in the Philippines instead and work as public school teachers.
The Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Commission on Higher Education, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, and Philippine Normal University organized the project.
“There are already 11 OFW teachers with permanent items while the application of 54 more are now forwarded to the DepEd,” Palad added.
Those who are interested may visit the NRCO desk located at DOLE Regional Office in the City of San Fernando or contact Ms. Palad at (045) 455-1613.
