Senior High School Support

Senior High School (SHS) Support is a project by CHED in coordination with DepEd to ensure high quality of teaching amid varying contexts, locations, and experience of teachers across the country.

SHS Support mainly conducts workshops to develop teaching guides and facilitate teacher trainings. It also offers grants for HEI and SHS faculty for long-term quality instruction.

To ensure the accessibility of SHS for all Filipino students, the SHS Support works hand in hand with state universities and colleges (SUCs) and DepEd to open senior high school programs this June.

For Faculty

The project is offering SHS Support Grants (CMO 9, s. 2016 & Clarifications) for HEI faculty and SHS faculty  who want to design and implement projects to support the senior high school program in the country.
