I'm currently a SEO2 in HQ. I was formerly a HOD, applied for AD post in HQ. My appointment was redesignated as "senior assistant director" as was promoted during my stint in HQ. If I were to be posted back to school, will it be a VP or HOD appointment? I know there's an interview for VP candidates but I have not been called for any interview yet. Thanks!

For you to hit SEO 2, it means the potential is there. May I ask if you are in your late 30s or early 40s? I have 2 friends who were identified as VPs potential, they were invited for tea sessions, the one in the late 30s turned down the offer to be VP, the one in early 40s cleared the VP interview but at this moment, the vacancies for VPs are hard to come by with the merging of schools. As such the one who cleared the VP tea session interview was told to wait or be deployed to HQ. He is doing VP work in his school as VP3.

I'm very early 40s. Quite old already. There are many younger VPs who has cleared the interview. My HQ stint is probably coming to an end and there's no news for VP interview, can I assume no hope to posted back as VP?

Very anecdotal, but I do know of a SAD who was posted back to school as a VP. But I assume he cleared VP interview along the way, so if you've not heard about that... might not be so soon?

I'm quite sure you're not that old. Rather than skills and education, it is more of the passion that keeps people going in many industries, not just teaching.

A general statistic I can say is that, for most of the teachers who left the service, close to none regretted the decision (no matter which other industry they ended up in).

Stay positive and look ahead ok! When there's a will, there's a way

After clearing the VP interview, one still has to be in the queue. So it would take quite a while cos the number of vacancies for new VPs is quite low with the merging of schools.

May I check if you are a scholar?

Not surprising for PSC scholars to promote that fast. In Ministries they would have been DD level.

You acknowledged that there are different tiers of scholarships. Which is very true. Similar to how SAF classified different tiers of scholarships to their own CEP. Eg. SAFOS is the top tier. Go there and make no mistakes throughout your career, you would be leading a ministry at least.

LMS is nothing-anyone with a local uni placement can get this money. People here are the lowest batch of scholars and their CEP usually ends up with just a senior lt colonel thats all. Full colonel if they are ok.

No scholarship means you are a farmer. Usually you will progress really slowly and end rank is Major or Lt Colonel.
