PROFESSIONAL REGULATORY BOARD FOR PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS
Resolution No. 15 Series of 2022

CLARIFICATION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ENHANCED TABLES OF SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE SUBJECTS OF THE LICENSURE EXAMINATION FOR PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS UNDER BOARD RESOLUTION NO. 11 (S. 2022) 

WHEREAS, Section 6 (g), Article Il of Republic Act (R.A.) No. 7836 or the Philippine Teachers Professionalization Act of 1994", as amended, mandates the Professional Regulatory Board for Professional Teachers (Board) to supervise and regulate the registration, licensure and practice of professional teachers in the Philippines,

WHEREAS, Section 9 (h) of R.A. No. 8981 or the "PRC Modernization Act of 2000", vests in the Professional Regulatory Boards the power, function, and responsibility to prepare, adopt, and issue the syllabi and Tables of Specifications (TOS) of the subjects for examination, in consultation with the academe; determine and prepare the questions for the licensure examination which shall be strictly within the scope of the syllabus and TOS of the subject for examination;

WHEREAS, the Board issued Resolution No. 11 (s. 2022) on the enhanced TOS for the subjects of the Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (LEPT), hereinafter referred to as the "2022 Enhanced TOS", which shall be applied starting the March 2023 LEPT. Prior to the 2022 Enhanced TOS, it was the 2009 TOS that was being used in the formulation of the LEPT questions as prescribed in Board Resolution No. 10 (s. 2009);

WHEREAS, the 2022 Enhanced TOS was designed to align with the curricular description and components of the Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) under CHED' Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 74 (s. 2017) and the Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) under CMO No. 75 (s. 2017). The first batch of BEEd and BSED students under these new curricula graduated in 2021;

WHEREAS, it was the intention of the Board and the Professional Regulation Commission (Commission) to apply the 2022 Enhanced TOS in the 2023 LEPT in order to give the BEEd and BSEd graduates prior to the issuance of CMO Nos. 74 and 75 (s. 2017) the last opportunity to take the LEPT this coming September 2022 based on the 2009 TOS which is deemed to be more relevant to their academic preparations:

WHEREAS, there is a need to issue a clarification on the implementation of the 2022 Enhanced TOS vis-à-vis the graduates of BEEd and BSEd under the old and new curricula.

WHEREFORE, upon these premises, the Board RESOLVES, as it is hereby RESOLVED that

1. Only graduates of BEEd and BSEd prior to the issuance of CMO Nos. 74 and 75 (s. 2017), i.e., those who graduated in year 2020 or earlier, shall be admitted to the September 2022 schedule of the LEPT:

2. The BEEd and BSEd graduates of year 2021 onwards shall not be eligible to take the September 2022 LEPT and shall be advised to apply in the next schedule of the LEPT starting 2023;

3. The 2023 LEPT and its succeeding schedules shall be open to all BEEd and BSED graduates, regardless of the year of their graduation. The graduates of BEEd and BSED prior to the issuance of CMO Nos. 74 and 75 (s. 2017) are, however, encouraged to take refresher course/s to bridge the gap in knowledge and learning outcomes between the old and the new curricula.

The foregoing rules shall similarly apply to the graduates of equivalent baccalaureate courses with eighteen (18) units of education. As such, only those who have taken or earned their eighteen (18) education units under the old curriculum shall be admitted to the September 2022 LEPT, while, those under the new curriculum shall be allowed to take the LEPT starting year 2023 only.

This Resolution shall take effect immediately.

Done this 30th day of May, 2022 in the City of Manila.
