Job Description

In a nation where only 12 out of 100 children who enter Grade 1 will complete their education, access to quality education remains a challenge in the Philippines. You can help change this.

Teach for the Philippines (TFP) is a for-purpose, non-stock, non-profit organization that aims to accelerate education reform in the country by developing leaders with a deep understanding of the public school system as well as the drive and commitment to work towards positive and meaningful change.

Every year, we look for these promising young leaders all over the country—Filipinos driven by their desire to grow professionally, to become the best leader they can be, and to serve for a purpose which goes beyond oneself. Para sa bata at para sa bayan.

Our Fellowship Program aims to develop promising Filipinos into teachers who can significantly improve student learning outcomes and leaders who can spark positive changes in the public school communities and contribute to education reform. We do this by providing training, personalized coaching, and mentorship along with the transformative experience of working for and with our public school communities for two years.

Through the Fellowship Program, one gets access to a two-year leadership development opportunity that offers:

  • A competitive entry-level salary
  • Opportunity to earn 18 units of education and eligibility to take the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET)
  • 550+ hours of training and individualized coaching over the course of two years
  • A holistic professional development program which aims to develop one’s leadership potential
  • A culture of excellence, continuous improvement, and collaboration
  • Continued involvement in the movement for education reform even beyond the two-year program


Application Deadline: January 31, 2020

Candidates for the 2020 Fellowship Program will be invited to Summer Institute, a 7-week pre-service training, which will run from April to May 2020.

ADMISSIONS HACK: There are limited slots for the Fellowship Program every year, and we strongly recommend starting with your application early!

About Teach for the Philippines

Teach for the Philippines is a for-purpose, non-stock, non-profit organization that works to provide all Filipino children with access to relevant and excellent education. We enlist some of the country’s most promising young leaders to teach for two years in public schools throughout the Philippines. Through training and experience from the classroom, Teach for the Philippines transforms them into leaders who will advocate for education equity. Founded in August 2012 by Lizzie Zobel, Margarita Delgado, and Clarissa Isabelle Delgado, Teach for the Philippines stands on the shoulders of giants: the Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation, and Teach For All. Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation created a 30-day reading program and published this in an online platform called "Building a Nation of Readers™"; while Teach for All is a global network of social enterprises working towards education reform. Today, with a fast-growing team of individuals, driven with a common passion for expanding educational access, Teach for the Philippines looks forward to leaving our mark on the country. Together, let’s transform the public school system to be the best it can be.
