Senior High School Market Research Project

The Fund for Assistance to Private Education is undertaking a market research study on the senior high school to provide reliable and valid baseline data on its demand, supply, and real costs of delivery. The data will be useful in the planning of the SHS offering in school year 2016-2017 for the following:

  • DepEd to be able to allocate equitably the limited resources and give priority to areas where it is greatly needed;
  • Private education sector to be able to determine where and in what manner it can offer its assets and capabilities to complement the government’s effort and support its mandate to make quality education accessible to all.

More specifically, information on costs is needed to compare cost effectiveness, to estimate resource requirements, and to assess the financial feasibility of the development of government schools and/or private schools offering the senior high school program.

Guidelines on the Preparation for National Implementation of the Senior High School (SHS) Program
Philippine Education Conference 2013


International educator headlines Philippine education confab 2013

“No nation has a monopoly on excellence,” says Vivien Stewart on learning from successful education systems.

Vivien Stewart will give the keynote lecture in the Philippine Education Conference 2013 on December 2-3, 2013 at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City. The conference theme is “Educational Leadership for Global Competitiveness and Sustainability: Responding to the Challenges of ASEAN 2015.”

In her book, A World-Class Education: Learning from International Models of Excellence and Innovation, Stewart pointed out that “all countries face challenges in adapting their education systems to the vast transformations taking place around the world,” but a number of countries have had success in improving their schools and consequently become the world’s top-performing systems.

For Philippine education, the ASEAN integration poses challenges that schools will have to prepare for to remain competitive and viable. The conference addresses this concern as it aims to raise awareness and foster understanding of ASEAN 2015, related government initiatives, and their implications to delivering quality education in the country. The conference features panel discussions involving the heads of the three education agencies, and educational leaders from both public and private education, among others. Conference participants will get a chance to connect with these decision-makers during the open forum.

Moreover, the conference seeks to develop an educational leadership that leads to school success as experts here and abroad talk on how schools can achieve global competitiveness and sustainability by innovating and evolving with the times. Sessions include: Strengthening Basic Education for Regional Competitiveness; Developing Technical Skills for Jobs in the ASEAN Market; Adopting a Strategic Thinking Approach to School Leadership; Aligning Quality Assurance and School Competitiveness, to name a few.

The conference is organized by the Department of Education (DepEd), Fund for Assistance to Private Education (FAPE), Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP), Coordinating Council of Private Educational Associations (COCOPEA), Center for Educational Measurement (CEM), Philippine Association for Teacher Education (PAFTE), and Forum on Curriculum and Supervision (FOCUS). The event is also in collaboration with the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).
