Teachers can earn CPD units by becoming education authors
The University Press of First Asia (UPFA) opens an opportunity for our country’s teachers to mold the minds of future professionals and leaders while earning Continuing Professional Development (CPD) units by authoring educational resources for Preschool, Grade School English, Junior High School Filipino, and some Senior High School subjects. CPD units are required by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) for teachers who are renewing their professional license.
UPFA is the editorial arm of Diwa Learning Systems Inc, the country’s leading provider of K to 12 educational resources. To maintain a team of exceptional educational specialists, writers, editors and publication developers, UPFA continuously looks for individuals who possess at least five years of teaching experience (priority will be given to those taking up a master's degree or a doctorate degree), adept knowledge of the K to 12 curriculum, instruction, and assessment. He or she should be deadline-oriented, results-driven, creative, innovative, resourceful, a team player, and willing to be trained with the standards of academic publishing. It would be an advantage if he or she has a writing experience.
If you have what it takes to be part of UPFA’s team, submit your resume and letter of intent to Dr. Maria Theresa C. Fernandez, UPFA's Senior Managing Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants who made it to the shortlist will receive an invitation to the pre-qualification orientation training on June 14, 2017.
"Being a textbook author gives an educator an opportunity to reach out to more learners throughout the country and be part of their formation," says Prof. Alvin Ringgo C. Reyes, the Department Chair at the College of Education of the University of Sto. Tomas and UPFA author for Filipino since 2009."It is a teacher's direct contribution to nation building."
