CEBU, Philippines - The Department of Education announces that the search is on for the 2010 Most Outstanding Implementer Award for Alternative Learning System (ALS), a program that provides alternative mode of education to learners outside the formal school system.

The search for the Most Outstanding ALS Implementers aims to support the professional growth and development of the ALS supervisor, coordinator and mobile teacher nationwide.

The search was first launched in 2003 and has since awarded 35 ALS workers.

“Giving recognition to our partners in making education universal and inclusive is a big boost to our hardworking and dedicated ALS workers,” said Education Secretary Mona D. Valisno.

The ALS award for the outstanding implementers will have three categories: ALS Education Supervisor I, District ALS Coordinator and ALS Mobile Teacher.

Nominees must be in the service at the time of nomination, must have been rated at least very satisfactory or its equivalent for the last two consecutive performance rating periods prior to the nomination, and have not been found guilty of any administrative or criminal offense.
