On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the last semester of the BSED program, students are required to attend a Student Practice Teaching as their practicum or On-The-Job training. Student teachers are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and practice their skills in actual classes. The practice teaching program is done under the supervision of a faculty member as well as the advisory teacher. Formal and informal classroom observations are conducted regularly. Among the requirements of practice teaching is  the creation of plans for classroom management and instruction. The number of hours required may differ in each university.


Board Exam

To become a Licensed teacher in the Philippines, a graduate of Bachelor of Secondary Education needs to pass the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET). The examination is conducted by the Board of Professional Teachers under the supervision of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC). The LET exam is usually conducted twice a year during the month of January and July.


There is also an option to take the Teacher Certificate Program (TCP), a non-degree program for graduates of any Bachelor’s degree who intend to become teachers. TCP is considered to be the fastest way to get into the Teaching Profession, requiring only 18 units of Professional Education. Individuals who successfully completed the TCP is given a certification and is qualified to take the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).

Reviews of Bachelor of Secondary Education graduates:

E. D.
◈ Studied BS in Secondary Education
◈ At University of the Philippines Diliman
◈ Graduated 2002

list bulletAbout my college education: Education is my 3rd course in UP (I think) . I wanted to take up Mass Communication but apparently my average grade just wasn't enough. So you can say it's interesting because I learned a lot - not just from my studies but from the whole environment as well. I learned how to study on the exam day itself; I learned how to be a patient by falling in line for the longest time; I learned how to plead to my teachers for that very single slot in the course. In short I learned what it means to be responsible.

Anyone can be a student of this course. You only need how to express yourself.

list bulletMy current job: I am a writer.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: After graduation, I taught at a Korean school. I can say it was helpful since I am able to know what to say and how to react to student responses.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Six months, I think.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Secondary Education: Yes. There are many out there who are in need of teachers and tutors!
