STEP UP has made a difference in our scholars’ lives
Over the course of six years, PBEd’s STEP UP program, in partnership with the Australian Government, through its Basic Education Sector Transformation program, has given the opportunity for the best and the brightest to teach in the Philippine public school system. In 2019, as part of the program's closeout campaign, PBEd conducted an evaluation to assess the impact of STEP UP on teacher quality and employment success. Following are the main results:
STEP UP contributed to raising interest in and to pursuing a career in the teaching profession among students and not currently teaching professionals.
Different program elements contributed to improved schooling and employment outcomes.
STEP UP scholar-teachers are highly regarded by their supervisors.
STEP UP improved socio-economic wellbeing of teacher-scholars.
