my head teacher appoint me to teach foods in summer classes, and one of the performances was to bake chiffon cake, so I don’t have any knowledge about it, what I did was I invited my fiancé as my expert to teach my students. So I can say that your educational qualification is one of the factors that affect the competence of a TLE teacher.” D5 “In my case sir regarding with those variables, I think I can relate myself to sex or gender, As a TLE major, we consider ourselves as jack of all trades major of none, we undergo in all areas of TLE, and even though I am a female I can say that my strength is in the boy’s trade because I have undergone the training of the national certificate II (NC II) in Welding and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). So, I believe that your sexuality will not define your competency in Teaching TLE subject. 3. What is the level of performance of the TLE teachers in general and in when they are grouped according to their personal profile?
103 D8 “I think I can rate myself as 4 (competent) because, I am still young and there is still room for improvement, though I am very passionate with my work, I even rendered service more than 6 hours a day and sometimes even Saturday I report to school just to do my other job aside from school works. I am also the ICT coordinator of the school, and I attended seminars and trainers in-behalf of the big bosses like our Principal and Head Teacher where sometimes they cannot able to attend.” D4 “In my 5 years length of service as a TLE teacher, I can rate my performance as 4 (competent), although my school gives me a lot of responsibilities like coaching and chairmanship because I believe I am still lack of experience, and I need more experience, training and seminars to rate myself 5 (very competent.” 4. Is there a significant relationship between competence and performance? D7 “Yes of course, I believe if a TLE teacher is lack of competence your performance is also low and also if your performance is not good your competence will also be affected. Especially if the area in the TLE you are teaching is not vertically inclined to your major field, because we all know that TLE is a skill subject, and as a teacher you need to demonstrate or show to your students the procedure in a certain job.” D1
104 “Very true and one thing, like for example, in my early years of teaching in ICT I am grasping the lesson I will teach to my students, and NC II is not yet that known by that time, and I keep questioning myself if the lesson and the skills I was teaching to my students were correct? But when NC II was introduced and then I passed the test, that’s the time I become more confident in my teaching technique. 8. What training program can be developed to improve the competency and performance of TLE teachers?
