It is designed to equip government leaders/managers with the five (5) leadership competencies, such as Thinking Strategically and Creatively, Leading Change, Building Collaborative, Inclusive Working Relationships, Managing Performance and Coaching for Results, and Creating and Nurturing High Performing Organization, as a means towards enhancing their effectiveness in leading their respective organizations.

Candidates for the RPL Track are expected to have already acquired the targeted competencies through previous real-life work experiences.

B. QUALIFICATION / ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Applicants for the program shall be considered based on the following priorities:

Priority 1: Those who are designated as Officer-in-Charge to Division Chief or equivalent positions due to lack of master’s degree;

Priority 2: Those being considered for the Division Chief or Executive/ Managerial positions; and

Priority 3: Those in the private sector planning to establish a career in the public sector.

The result of PQT shall be released on May 4, 2018.

E.2 PORTFOLIO BUILDING

Candidates who will pass the Pre-Qualifying Test shall proceed to the next phase of the program which is a 90-day Portfolio Building. They will attend an orientation which includes a module on Portfolio Building in order to be equipped with the necessary concepts and skills to build portfolios of competencies that were demonstrated in the course of their previous work experience.

In building their portfolio, they need to cite instances from their work history in which the targeted competencies were displayed. Evidence manifesting the targeted competency should be recent, or within the last three (3) years.

E.3 COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT STAGE

The CPro candidates shall be subjected to competency assessment which is composed of two (2) parts with the following weight allocation:
