The Department of Education (DepEd) will prioritize college professors in the hiring process of senior high school (SHS), said officer-in-charge division superintendent of DepEd Imus City Dr. Lualhati Cadavedo during the Fifth Young Educators’ Congress held at the Ugnayang La Salle (ULS) on December 3 to 4.
The order will address the issue of faculty reduction in tertiary levels due to the decrease in enrollment for the next two academic years and the removal of general education subjects in the college curriculum.
Cadavedo added that professors who obtained higher academic degrees in Education and have passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers will have a better chance to be hired in the SHS.

The Young Educators’ Congress is an annual gathering hosted by the Professional Education Department of the College of Education (COEd) that features various discussions and research presentations on the trends and issues regarding education.
Dr. Allan de Guzman, dean of the College of Education at University of Santo Tomas, served as one of the guest speakers and talked about the qualities of an effective educator who can respond to the demands of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Integration.
During the two-day congress, students joined contests on demonstration teaching, jazz chant, and storytelling, allowing them to review professional education subjects and to showcase their teaching skills.
Almost 1,800 participants composed of Bachelor of Education students, professors, and administrators from different colleges and universities in Luzon and National Capital Region attended the event.
