This Descriptive Survey research aims to investigate the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) level of the University of Baguio High School teachers (n=38) and how their participation in training has helped them advance in their TPACK competence. Quantitative and Qualitative responses from the survey were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Kruskal-Wallis H Test, and thematic analysis and were interpreted. Results show that field of specialization is a predictive factor that caused the significant difference in teacher’s TK Level only. Teacher’s age, highest educational attainment, years of teaching, and field of specialization was not a significant factor that caused the difference in their TPACK Level. In-Service Training and Self-Directed was deemed to be attended 2-4 times in a year but only once or none at all in External Training which is deemed necessary to update the teachers to new advancement in their content area, new pedagogical approaches, and appropriate technology integration to cater to the learning needed in the 21st Century milieu. Based on their written response, three themes emerged based on the written response of the respondents about the training they receive with their TPACK level: (1) The lack of TPACK training affected TPACK confidence of the Teachers. (2) The TPACK trainings played a role in equipping the teachers to meet TPACK demands of the new normal education in the teaching and learning. (3) Prior knowledge and self-motivated/directed training enriched TPACK knowledge and skills in meeting the gap between in-house and external training. Thus, it was recommended to provide varied TPACK training and evaluate the implementation of teacher’s TPACK in the classroom responding to the need to increase and develop TPACK competence amongst the teachers in the new normal education.
