[forums.salary.sg/income-jobs/1758-career-teacher-98.html#.Wr0IO3Pmh-E QUOTE=Unregistered;106261]Female.
I have been in the service for abt 5 years.
Thought i will be promoted this year. But nope.
NIE Diploma with A lvls.
Stuck at GEO1 for 5 years already. Pay around 2.2k before CPF.
Degree holder colleague who came in together with me has just been promoted to GEO4.
A junior colleague who wayangs a lot just got promoted to GEO3.
You can see why Im losing my passion. Not because of promotion alone. But because of the unfairness of it all.
When you guys say that 4k is too low for teachers or other complaints abt pay etc..look at mine.

Feel that Im in a hell hole.
Senior colleagues dont mingle with me cuz im "too quiet".

I feel i should opt for a transfer to another school. What do you think?

#feelmypain[/QUOTE]

Don't lose heart... I was like you when I was in my first school. No promotion after 6 years because I was a diploma holder. Got my transfer becuase i was sick of it.

Then got my first promotion (GEO2A1) the following year, only had it to be taken back as I was emplaced in the same year, same month (GEO1) So my first promotion was in my 8th year. 4 years later, I got my second promotion (GEO4).

So, don't lose heart... there are people worse off than you.

😯😯 You jumped from GEO1 to GEO4? Whoa! Didnt know that was possible. So happy for you!
Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Im thinking of transferring too should things look more bleaker in the months to come.
Reading your experience instilled more patience in me to just move along. Thank you❤

Thank you for your kind words. Yes that C- really did me in. But yeah..bouncing back with the C+ felt a bit more reassuring for the effort ive put in.
Let's hope this yr is a better year.

Trying hard to stop comparing myself to the others who get promoted rather easily.

Gambatte!

Thank you @singsongplaymj

You can more or less Guess you will be promoted if you have consistent grades or upward trend grades. Usually, last year grade before promotion is the highest of last 3 PB grades. Most of my colleagues, average degree holder performance is 2 years to GEO3, 3 -4 years to GEO4.

For promotion to GEO 5, it depends. Some people take 2 years, some colleagues even 5 years still at GE04.

Above are all first career Teachers for my school colleagues. Mid career should be faster but the expectations will also be higher.
Hi, so it means that we will be receiving a letter via postal mail? Or is it sent to the school?

When will the promotion be official i.e. When will the grade change to the next level in [email protected]?

Will the April salary be of the next higher grade? Or will it take a few months?

I was promoted to GEO3 in 2014 and has been waiting for my turn to get promoted since then. Performance grades was C+, B, C and B.
C was because i went on maternity leave. Heard that i've to get at least C+ for 3 consecutive years. Is that true? Means that I have to wait for another two years? I thot it was quite sad that i've two B's but cos of maternity leave that i got to restart all over again. Anyone who know if this is true?

This year, the list could have come later so some colleagues were not informed before it was announced. List should be sent to school.

Most often, promotion is official 1 April. Some promotions are in October, very few though. So salary is effective promotion date, April or October.

Not true. I have colleagues who have gotten 3 consecutive Bs without being promoted. Your appraisal looks promising. Hope for the best next year.

My performance has been not that bad i guess. In the C category..C, C-, C+. Got C- once due to issues out of my will.

I guess it's hard to change ppl's perception. Better that I leave. 🙁🙁
Getting C- delays your promotion by at least TWO years.
