Resolution No. 95-4844
WHEREAS, it is the policy of the government to establish a continuing program for the development of all employees at all levels and ranks;
WHEREAS, to accomplish this objective, and given the Philippine geographical composition and some 1.5 million public sector employees, there is a need to establish a more aggressive mechanism so that every government employee would be able to avail of at least one HRD intervention each year;
NOW, THEREFORE, the Commission RESOLVES, to establish the Distance Learning Program (DLP) as an alternative development program to promote continuing staff development in the bureaucracy which is envisioned to:
- provide employees who cannot avail of the usual training courses due to financial and/or physical constraints with alternative HRD learning and development to the formal training experience;
- effect a cost-saving strategy for the continuing development of manpower resources; and
- provide government employees adequate opportunity to increase their cognitive and effective skill levels relative to their work and role in public service.
