DepEd Teacher Application Process

As the Filipino nation prepares for the full implementation of the Senior High School under the K-12
curriculum, the Department of Education, with its biggest slice in the national budget, would be creating
thousands of teaching items available for those seeking to be employed in the public school sector.
Here's a guide in applying as a public school teacher in the Philippines:

Step 1. Prepare all necessary documents. See checklist here.

CSC Form 212 (Revised 2005) in two copies with the latest 2x2 ID picture

Certified photocopy of PRC professional identification card or a PRC certification showing the
teacher's name, LET rating, and other information recorded in the PRC Office

Certified photocopy of ratings obtained in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET)/Professional
Board Examination for Teachers (PBET)

Certified copy of transcript of records (GWA template)

Copies of service records, performance rating, and school clearance for those with teaching
experience. If unavailable, the applicant must submit a justification citing the reason/s for

Certificates of specialized training, if any

Certified copy of the Voter's ID and/or any proof of residency as deemed acceptable by the School
Screening Committee

NBI Clearance

Omnibus certification of authenticity and veracity of all documents submitted, signed by the

Step 2. Visit and register to get a Unique Applicant Number

With DepEd Order no. 7, series of 2015, teacher applicants should register at the department's online
portal to encode their Personal Data Sheet (PDS) and select the division they want to be ranked. The UAN
is used for faster processing of application. For assistance, see guide here.
Step 3. Proceed to your nearest (preferred) public school and submit your application
There's an existing law that local applicants are prioritized in the selection process so it's best to go to your
nearest public school first in order to increase your chances of being hired.
Step 4. Wait for the interview schedule.
Some DepEd district offices are prompt in processing teacher application while others take a while so
waiting time varies. Be sure to get the contact information of the school's HR / liaison officer just in case
you need to follow up your application.

Step 5. Write a good teaching demonstration plan.

Conduct an impressive teaching demo by knowing your subject matter really well, preparing appropriate
visual aids and delivering your presentation in a confident and clear manner. See more tips here.
Step 6. Take the English Proficiency Exam.
Teacher-applicants of the division office will be required to undergo this test simultaneously. This is to
measure the applicant's reading comprehension skills, vocabulary, grammar and language proficiency.
Step 7. Wait for the posting of the Registry of Qualified Applicants (RQA).
With this step,patience is a real virtue since it may take the division office a long while to compute, sort
out and release the names of the applicants who meet the cut-off score (70%). Check the ranking system
Step 8. Wait for your assignment / deployment.
You also need a lot of patience on this final leg of application. I've known people who weren't able to
endure the agony of waiting, they succumb to applying for a job somewhere else.
But once you receive your assignment and appointment documents, you're on your way towards a fulfilling
career of a public school teacher. Congratulations!
