I believe it is on a rotating contract basis. From wat I read in this thread, your contract can be dropped.

Why not stay as MOE teacher? I heard it's not hard to hit 100k/yr after a few years.

Default My poly experience so far

I read a number of the threads and thought that I could add my own experience as well. I have been working in the poly for more than 4years. I find that the work is very fast paced and requires a fair bit of judgement, intellect and management. Everyday there is a new challenge. I am in my late 30s and in a non-academic school. recently feel a little shortchanged as my sal has only increased by 1k after 4 yrs despite grading B and above in all the years. Am I being shortchanged or jus my perception?

First off, its usually not a good sign if you start describing poly life as ďvery fast paced, judgment, intellect and management ď. Fulfilling yes, but letís not kid ourselves, it ainít anywhere near the levels of pte sector.

Grade B is average, $1000 increment over 4 years means $250 per year average. Assuming your pay is $5000, thatís about 5%, reasonable and not short change. My suggestion is you be content & stay where you are. The outside world will be too stressful for you even if they are willing to pay you more. Also your age is considered danger zone for retrenchment & unemployment, better donít get greedy & fool around.
