- The ALS Programs are carried out by ALS Mobile Teachers and District ALS Coordinators in the 17 regions of the country. Both are DepED employed and hold regular teacher items.
Mobile Teachers are “specialized” teachers who live among the people in remote barangays of the country conduct the BLP for illiterate out-of-school youth and adults who are willing to learn basic literacy skills and Accreditation and Equivalency (a continuing education) for those who left formal school system or have no access to schools.
The District ALS Coordinators are primarily designated to harmonize ALS initiatives in a district. However, just like the Mobile Teachers, they also serve as facilitators in the delivery of the Basic Literacy Program and the Accreditation and Equivalency Program.
