Abstract

 

The teaching profession is a public statement of professional accountability. Every teacher demonstrates a vital role in improving the students’ learning and increasing their competencies (World Bank Group, 2016). One must consider teacher quality which leads us to professionalizing the profession through a set of standards. Every individual working in an educational institution needs a clearer understanding of the professional standards required for the teachers and school leaders (Green, 2013). With the enactment of the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST) through DepEd Order No. 42, s. 2017 an educational reform was born enhancing the concern of teacher quality in the Philippines. At this juncture, the researchers aim to identify the needs of the master teachers based on different key result areas and duties and responsibilities aligned to the new standards based on PPST which is embodied in the new DepEd Order No. 42 s. 2017. From the survey conducted by the researchers, results showed the various areas which may require enhancement and additional training programs. Master Teachers need an in-depth training on the conduct of basic and action research, conduct of coaching and mentoring of teachers and a viable system of instructional supervision in giving technical assistance to teachers. The Division of Cavite Province continues to provide professional development program to its teachers based on the different needs of the teachers. This would not only be reflected in the teachers’ Individual Performance Commitment and Review Form (IPCRF) rating for the coming S.Y. 2018 – 2019 but in an improved academic performance among the learners and this is what teacher quality and standards are all about.
