PASIG CITY, March 31, 2023 – The Department of Education (DepEd) has issued the Guidelines on the Implementation of the Joint Delivery Voucher Program (JDVP) for Senior High School Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (SHS-TVL) Specialization for School Year 2022-2023 and subsequent years to enhance the capability of the schools to implement the program.
In DepEd Order (DO) No. 006, series of 2023, DepEd aims to empower public schools offering SHS-TVL track through partnerships with institutions that are equipped with the necessary resources to carry out the program.
JDVP-TVL is a tuition fee assistance to Grade 12 learners in DepEd public SHSs, which have been identified as having inadequate facilities, equipment, tools, and teachers relevant to the implementation of TVL specializations.
The said issuance will enable learners to complete their TVL specialization subjects through the partners, provide an appropriate learning environment required of the specialization, and address delays in the provision of the necessary resources for the TVL Specializations.
JDVP-TVL Guidelines will likewise cater Grade 12 learners enrolled in DepEd public SHSs under the TVL track who will be allowed to take their specialization subjects in eligible private or non-DepEd public SHSs and private TVIs.
The assistance shall be in the form of a JDVP-TVL voucher to be given to the learner-beneficiaries enrolled in the TVL Track in identified DepEd public SHSs.
The identified DepEd public SHSs, however, must be offering SHS-TVL for the past four to five years, ascertained to have adequate facilities, equipment, tools, and teachers, and located in the areas where there are accessible private SHSs, non-DepEd public SHSs, or private TVIs, which can provide further instructions and training to learners.
Following the issuance of the guideline, the GASO-Finance Service in partnership with BCD shall conduct an Online Orientation for regional and division offices toward the end of the month.
For the issuance, utilization, and implementation of JDVP-TVL voucher, the participating schools shall prepare the list of identified learner-beneficiaries, conduct an orientation to the beneficiaries, parents, and teachers, and arrange an education and training schedule with the JDVP-TVL Partner, among others.
