The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has granted the request of Palawan to be one of the venues of the Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (LEPT) set on September 29.
Aside from Palawan, six other provinces were also approved as additional testing centers for the LEPT in September.
The provinces of Kidapawan, Marinduque, Masbate, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, and Romblon were also designated as additional testing centers.
Earlier, the Palawan Provincial Board passed a resolution requesting the PRC to make the province as a testing center by the PRC.
In her resolution, Board Member Sharon Abiog-Onda said making the province a regular LEPT testing center will help future teachers save on transportation and accommodation expenses.
“Mahalaga na mag-request tayo sa PRC na maging regular testing center ang Palawan para makatulong tayo sa mga nais maging guro na makatipid sa gastusin nila. Hindi na rin sila maghahanda ng malaking halaga ng pera para makakuha ng exam,” she said.
Meanwhile, the application for the teachers’ board examination will be from April to July 31.
