“Our educators already have their plates full. By approving the creation of 5,000 non-teaching positions, we aim to relieve teachers of administrative tasks and allow them to focus on quality instruction. This move will significantly benefit our educators and enhance the country’s education system,” DBM Secretary Amenah Pangandaman said in a statement.

According to the DBM, the non-teaching positions are classified as Administrative Officer II, with a Salary of Grade 11.

The positions will be available in the Cordillera Administrative Region, National Capital Region, Regions I, II, III, IV-A, IV-B, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, and the Caraga region.
