Date Posted: October 27th, 2017 12:48 PM

The National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO) has provided teaching kits to eight former overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who are now teachers in Central Visayas.


In a report to DOLE Central Visayas OIC-Regional Director Cyril L. Ticao, NRCO Regional Coordinator Dexter F. Paro said that eight beneficiaries of the Sa Pinas, Ikaw ang Ma’am/Sir (SPIMS) Program received their teaching kits worth P10,000 each, which comprised of back packs, stationeries and school supplies, flash drives, tablets, and voice aid lapels with head worn microphone.


The eight SPIMS beneficiaries who personally received their kits at the DOLE Regional Office were Charity S. Jaya-Agbon of Bilar, Bohol; Nelia B. Archival of San Jose, Cebu City; Mardy S. Brosas of Basak, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu; Angie F. Luchavez of San Francisco, Camotes Island, Cebu; Rodelsita C. Mananquil of Tanjay City, Negros Oriental; Geraldine D. Imbong of Canjulao, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu; Elena G. Narandan of Moalboal, Cebu; and Amy P. Espina of Talisay City, Cebu.


They form part of the 28 former OFWs who were given Teacher 1 plantilla positions and were deployed to their respective schools of assignment in Central Visayas this year.


The distribution of kits to the rest of the beneficiaries, Paro added, would still have to be scheduled. At least P200,000.00 is in the pipeline for the procurement of additional instructional materials.


“Apart from giving teaching kits to teacher-OFWs, our office is also responsible in helping aspirants acquire their Teacher 1 plantilla positions in close coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd). We also assist those who are Licensure Examinations for Teachers or LET passers yet lack the minimum requirements of teaching experience, by helping them undertake an online refresher course in partnership with the Philippine Normal University (PNU),” Paro said.


SPIMS is an OFW reintegration convergence project of DOLE, DepEd, PNU, Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).


The program aims to gain back the Filipino workers overseas, particularly the OFW LET passers, and provide them with the option to stay in the country to work as public school teachers.
