I see that nowadays there are many tuition and tutorial centres - some famous names included - actively recruiting teachers, and they require trained teachers with MOE schools teaching experience.

I think this is indeed good opportunities for those trained teachers who've completed their bonds, yet feel swamped with extra non-teaching related admin duties, and are not appreciated in their current positions, i.e. not promoted regularly.

Heard that there is much more chance to concentrate on teaching duties when working in a tuition centre. Little admin, except those related to the classes taught, and definitely none of those time-wasting activities designed to boost the management KPI. Only drawback I can think of is that teaching on weekends is a must. In fact, weekends are busy periods.

Must learn to work smart as a teacher. Some school leaders can really make use of teachers to work hard but then promote others who are more wayang. Dun expect too much so less disappointment.. I learnt my lesson the hard way.. Better to balance work with your own family who needs you more

Old info below on how much mid career salaries are. Note there have been a few salary adjustments along the way (article was presumably in 2008). So maybe can expect slightly higher starting salary, but the increment example is probably a good guide.

I think they will still look at your degree, and will give some adjustments at the start based on your years of experience. But only up to a certain extent capped on their beginning salary scale, as they can't give you a higher grade at the start. But due to your experience, your pay will probably increase very quickly after that with promotions and additional increments.

Ms Ng is a Good Honours degree holder who has worked for 5 years in the private sector. Her last drawn salary was $4,200. She decides to join teaching in 2008. Under the current policy, she would be offered a starting salary of $3,172 as a trainee teacher in NIE. With the revised policy, her starting salary will be $3,347. Upon graduation from NIE in 2009 and subject to good performance, she is placed on the General Education Officer (GEO) 1A1 grade directly (instead of GEO 1.1) and given additional salary increments, to bring her salary to $4,100. This is the same pay as her peer who joined the teaching profession immediately upon graduation.

Hi. I received an email asking me to attend an appointment briefing with a AOD date given. Does it mean that I already got the job or there are something else that I have to clear ?
