TEACHER INDUCTION PROGRAM
The Teacher Induction Program (TIP) is institutionalized to provide a systematic and comprehensive support system for the newly hired teachers in order to seamlessly immerse them in the teaching profession in the public school system.
At the end of the TIP, new teachers are expected to:
- demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the Department of Education—its vision, mission, goals, and strategic directions; systems and processes; school policies and procedures—and teacher rights and responsibilities;
- articulate and apply knowledge, skills, attitude, and values (KSAVs) required of teachers as specified in the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST) and DepEd Core Values; and
- improve practice towards career advancement based on set professional development goals.
The TIP framework comprises three components:
- The ‘Curriculum’ inducts teachers into DepEd, builds their KSAVs, and supports career advancement.
- The ‘Delivery’ provides teachers with a multi-modal delivery platform that supports the curriculum.
- The ‘Ecosystem’ enables harmonized and dynamic cooperation within linkages and resources.
The TIP components are elaborated below:
