The advisory enables the field people to choose which among the non-DepEd seminars could address the training needs of their staff this year. For funding purposes, they could cite DepEd Order 74 when they prepare the local Memo for those staff who have identified MLE as the priority need. This is to complement the DepEd CO training on MTB MLE. The management will soon issue a DepEd Order that seminars, trainings, etc., offered should be accredited by HEIs in their masteral or doctoral courses as announced by the secretary when he met with associations, institutions that offer seminars, trainings, last year. God bless.
