On the plus side, this practice allowed officers the opportunity to gracefully exit the role if it wasn't a good fit (whether a decision by SLs, or the officer themselves decide not to pursue it).

2) If you've pretty much got an interview date set already, is there really a big rush? If you're doing SH-level work now, your performance rating and CEP will likely be adjusted accordingly anyway, regardless of actual appointment. If you're not (doing the work yet), you can try asking your RO for more responsibilities. You would be missing out on responsibility allowance, which is rather annoying, but in the long run it's really not that big a deal, is it?

3) Do you really have a better alternative? You can try applying for open posting this year, and perhaps another school will want to take you in as SH/LH - but you might only be released in Jun 23, which would only accelerate the timeline by half a year, while you'll have to get acquainted with the new people/systems.

On a very practical level, I don't think it makes much sense to switch schools, if you've been doing pretty well there. If the internal appointment system is not actually the norm in your school, you might want to ask your RO why so much additional time is required, and how you can develop yourself further in preparation for the interview.

sound advice. Thanks

agree with u that most teachers with 10yoe will probably be at geo 4 which means around 5k to 6k only
Yup, I do know of a teacher (MOE overseas scholar) getting 6.3K at 5 YOE.
Also, while is is rare, but there are couple of high flyer ppl who became VPs at 10 YOE. I reckoned they must be getting at least 8K+

I worked in MOE HQ, there is currently one female who is director (not deputy) at age of 33 who was seconded to HQ a few years ago after been a teacher for few years.
Extreme high flyer. Should be getting 5 digit i suppose?

Their CEP is to become Deputy Secretary, Perm Secetary or even to lead Stat Board

I am a 10yoe at geo 5 (4th year at this grade), and yes salary is in the 7k range. Tbh, I donít think that I am anywhere near VP-ship. The supply-demand situation is skewed, and most SLs are not cut out to groom the next batch of leadership. Many assume that you will be contented to be appointed SH/HOD and thus fail to have a clear developmental plan craft out for aspiring officers.

I have a colleague who is covering a KP position for at least 6 years. Does that mean this person is not suitable/ sch is not ready / any particular reason?

Maybe exceed quota. Depending on department size, there is a maximum number of confirmed KPs at each level. e.g. an IP dept with 15 teachers and one HOD, may have one SH for a subject that the HOD doesn't teach, but usually not more than that. But the limits are always specific to each school's context, rather than generalised.

You need to be more specific. I have seen a number of SHs who are covering hod position but never gotten the chance to move up. HODs ended up being helicoptered from elsewhere. Sometimes, the SLs just deem the person not suitable to take on greater responsibilities.

I see, so far thereís HOD and this person is covering SH position. Still covering after these years hence Iím curious to know if she is not suitable or SL may reserve place for someone else

Real for those with Grade B and above I suppose.

Not real for the many of us with a Grade C.
