Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The proposed technical assistance will be implemented by Teach for the Philippines (TFP) in coordination with the Department of Education (DepED) and will identify, develop, and support a community of 120 Teaching Fellows over a period of two years. DepED has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with TFP to allow for the piloting of the K to 12 curriculum in Grade 3 and the partnership allows for the first time non-education majors and professionals to teach in the public school system. The expected outcome is a scalable and sustainable ICT-based pre- and in-service training program that enhances the competencies of elementary school teachers.
