  1. Hi. I am a solo parent to a 3yrs old boy. I graduated as BS Mathematics but because of my situation I have not able to get a permanent job. I have to stop because no one will look for my baby when we were at Manila. So I decided to move to my province at Cebu and applied as DH. Now I am here at Kuwait but my situation is not so good. I want to be home before it will become worst. But before that I want to ask for an assistance to CHED if their are job vaccancy that fits my education. I do love teaching but I do not have yet an education units so qualify me to take LET. I am planning to take an 18 units education but all this will be possible if I do have a permanent income. I do hope that you can help me in my querry. Thank you very much and God Bless.
