Degree holder counsellors are under mx scheme just like any other working in ministries, so definitely won’t lose out to teachers

I wonder how commonly schools do reemployment of KPs, especially when positions for EOs are so limited now...

Default Update on Pay

2012: BT pay. Was earning $4.1k (FCH, non-scholar, male)
2021: just got GEO5. Earning $7.1k.

Changed schools in 2014 and 2017.

I agree with the earlier post. If your SLs like you, major sins can be forgiven. National results are not that important.

But if they don't like you, everything will be picked on (e.g. classroom management, results, etc).

Isn't that common for all jobs? Nothing peculiar to a teaching career.

Very true. But when you are young and naive, you would think that educators who supposedly teach moral values to students would be above that. Sadly not true. I do feel like a hypocrite sometimes teaching values when we ourselves generally don't practise what we preach.

SH.

Wasn't a scholar (took the old NIE Education degree). If you work hard enough (or harder and / or smarter enough, it is possible. But yes, scholars are deliberately given bigger portfolios to justify their faster promotion. Whether they do it well, though at times they can't lead for nuts and merely get by because farmers tank the project.

I also see some overseas scholars (mostly the PE or Art/Music teachers) who remain as teachers. So yes, being a scholar does not necessarily mean that you get leadership immediately as well.

But at the end of the day, as long as SLs like you, see potential and want to groom you, that seems to be the most impt factor.

Couldn't agree more with all the posts that mentioned this aspect.

I think it's a very big part of why young teachers leave, and why older ones lose their purpose.

Yet many leaders I see are exactly the source of the problem. And hence the issue continues to perpetuates.

We should all do the right thing and stop all the wrongdoings when we see it.
(I know it's easy to say. But hey, one starfish at a time as well.)

simple reason.Many of them (not all of course) got to their position precisely because of this...hence rot starts frm the top...and the top came frm the bottom. hahaha
never ending cycle
