𝗜𝗖𝗬𝗠𝗜: The College of Teacher Education (CTED) hosted a celebratory dinner to conclude the institutional celebration for the Level IV accreditation of its Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) program on November 18, 2022, at the Villa Caceres Hotel.
In her talk, Dr. Aida P. Osea, former dean of CTED and the current Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA), posed questions anent the plans of the college following the receipt of Level IV accredited status for its BEED program: “What’s next after this? What are the challenges we have to face?”
Piece by piece, the questions were answered when Dr. Meda D. San Juan, Dr. Zoraida A. Monserate, Dr. Elizer R. Caculitan, Mr. Mario C. Villanueva, and Dr. Rose Marie A. Arao spoke before the guests and visitors during the intimate program along with the celebratory dinner.
According to Dr. San Juan, former CTED dean, former VPAA, and former Executive Vice President, NCF, which she considered as her “home”, should “receive more laurels in the name of QuEST”.
On the other hand, Dr. Monserate, former CTED dean, said, “This pride will echo in the history”, thus CTED should keep this award of excellence “as just the beginning.”
Dr. Caculitan, former CTED dean and the current Director of the Research and Extension Office, also said that NCF must “continuously surpass the test of time and be the leading institution not just in the region, but in the entire nation”.
The response continued— Mr. Mario C. Villanueva, NCF President, challenged the college: “Go beyond the standards, explore, and innovate… We do not keep on the standards, we go beyond the best”.
Meanwhile, in her address, Dr. Arao, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Education Supervisor, declared that NCF “did not just hit the mark— you created standards for BEED programs in the region and nation”. She then challenged Dr. Onward O. Ognita, the current CTED dean, “to keep the fire (of the college) burning, be a beacon of knowledge and inspiration, and work to attain the titles ‘Center of Development’ or ‘Center of Excellence'”.
In his closing remarks, Dr. Ognita extended his gratitude to all the offices and personnel who have helped the CTED attain the highest accreditation level for its BEED program. He also pledged to “retain the excellence and popularity of CTED and work hand in hand with the institution towards the vision of becoming the Center of Development or Center of Excellence”.
Furthermore, NCF President Villanueva awarded certificates of recognition to the former deans and the chairpersons of the ten areas of accreditation who have served significant contributions in the quest for quality and excellence.
Along with the present members of the faculty of instruction of the CTED, Prof. Judy Montas, Prof. Ester Belmonte, and Prof. Raquel Nabong, former members of the faculty, also graced the occasion.
