February 17, 1992 – DO 18, s. 1992 – Classification of Vocational Schools
To: Regional Directors
Vocational Schools Superintendents/Administrators
- The General Appropriations Act of 1991 has classified technical schools offering post-secondary courses into two (2), to wit: (a) Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) institutions; and (b) Higher Technical Education (THE) institutions. The former type offers post-secondary non-degree courses and is headed by a Vocational School Administrator, while the latter type offers the 3-year engineering/industrial technician and degree courses, and is headed by a Vocational School Superintendent.
- This Office recognizes and confirms such classifications. Henceforth, all schools classified under these two (2) classifications, being post-secondary institutions, shall report directly to the Regional Office, through the Technical and Vocational Education Division, for non-degree courses. All post-secondary technical schools shall be given a period of five (5) years, from 1992 to 1996, to achieve the following enrolment ratio:
For TVE institutions: 60% post-secondary non-degree, 40% secondary
For HTE institutions: 10% degree courses, 60% non-degree, 30% secondary
- Data and information, as well as processing of degree courses, shall be a collaborative effort with the Higher Education Division. In the same vein, data and information of secondary courses shall be a collaborative effort with the Secondary Education Division.
- All previous classifications and issuances inconsistent with the contents of this Order are hereby rescinded.
