Or maybe that person was talking BS and spreading fake news.

If there is going to be a pay cut, the heads of civil service would have addressed us long ago and talked some crap about SGunited and making sacrifices to go through tough times together bla bla bla. Then you know paycut is coming. So far, don't have.

i guess i was foolish.

anyway, my passion is teaching and if MOE dictates every single aspect of who i teach, and what i teach, maybe it's better for me not to join such a rigid organisation. i can teach anywhere else. guess that's why many successful teachers turn toward giving tuition - more money, and more freedom/flexibility

YES! That is a good learning point from your experience. It is just a taste of how rigid MOE (and the civil service really) is as an organisation. If you do not want to deal with this sort of thing, chase your passion in education in the private sector or in independent schools. All the best!

you can apply directly to independent schools, they have their own career portal and your application is handled by the school itself

Former teacher. Just wanted to give some perspective on what's been discussed recently.

Private sector/tuition can be very liberating. Much more autonomy to teach what you think best, etc. I don't think the private education sector is in particularly great shape at the moment, though. There's quite a big risk. I know of a DD at MOE who left for private sector and the company closed less than 6 months later. Heard of tuition centres poaching tutors to get their students to enroll. If the system is cannibalizing itself, maybe it's not the best time to join.

Re independent schools, it's good if you find yourself aligned with values of the school. Downside is that upward progression can be more difficult. In MOE, if it's time for you to become HOD/VP, there's almost always a school SOMEWHERE that needs a new HOD/VP. In an independent school, opportunities are based on attrition, essentially.

Hi! I am starting my compulsory untrained teaching stint soon and I am hoping to get some tips/advices from current teachers with regards to that. It honestly seems a little daunting given that we will have to report straight to the school without much experience (but nonetheless, still very excited to start this journey!).

It will be great if anyone can provide me with some advices in this aspect, how the stint will be like or anything useful for a beginner teacher. Thank you so much everyone!
