NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY: Teach for the Philippines is committed to a policy of equal treatment and opportunity in every aspect of its relations with its applicants, batch members, and staff members, without regard to race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, marital status, military status, pregnancy, or parenthood.
CRIMINAL RECORDS/PROCEEDINGS:In line with its Child Protection Policy, Teach for the Philippines reserves the right to deny admission to or dismiss any potential applicant who has been involved in a criminal proceeding other than a minor traffic violation, regardless of the outcome. This includes criminal matters that were handled by a juvenile court and final determinations that are under seal or otherwise expunged from the public record. In addition, Teach for the Philippines reserves the right to inform the Department of Education in which the participant is teaching or planning to teach of the member’s conviction records or ongoing involvement in criminal proceedings.
If, through background checks conducted by Teach for the Philippines, it is found that there is a charge against a selected applicant other than a minor traffic violation, and the selected applicant did not disclose it in the application, this may be treated as falsification or misrepresentation, which are grounds for dismissal.
FALSIFICATION/MISREPRESENTATION: Falsification or misrepresentation of any sort on the application or supporting materials is grounds for non-admission or dismissal. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Teach for the Philippines may require additional information from applicants before determining whether to invite them to a phone and/or final interview. Teach for the Philippines reserves the right to collect information from applicants at a later date and use this information in admissions decisions.
FEEDBACK: We are unable to provide individual feedback about admissions decisions to applicants who are not accepted at any stage of the application process given the volume of applications for both Staff and Fellowship, that Teach for the Philippines receives.
