From this thread, I realise that this offer is top of the scale for untrained tch.
Does this mean I might hit the top of scale of the next grade when I graduate frm pgde?
If I hv hit the top scale, during my bond, what if I am perceived as a underperformer? Will I be at risk to be asked to end my bond?

Appreciate any advice for this newbie. Thks.
Hi, I too was a mid career.... and took at 60% paycut when i join MOE some time back.
You will start with $4340. After graduation from NIE you will get $4500.
Within 3 years, you will get about $6k and if your performance is reasonable.. (no need to be that good), you will get $7k within 5 years.

If you take up leadership position, it will increase from there... hope I answered your query....
