Not direct in anyway. Compliment letters only play a residual effect during ranking and not to any great extent. You can be nominated for different awards but even winning any does not really accelerate your promotion. But it probably does allow HR to focus on you as a candidate for certain appointments but this is also pretty rare unless the award is a at a larger scale e.g PTA etc. Then the SLs will probably repark more things on your plate to help you with your next appointment promotion. But to qualify and win those, usually you are already a KP doing substantial work or else you will not even be nominated.

U see saf created a lot of additional ranks
3sg 2sg 1sg
Now So many grades of warrant officer also
And even senior lieutenant colonel

Why?
Reason being while i cannot increase pay
I can increase title.😉
More incentive for them to stay

Standard path is to email the generic school email address and wait for them to connect you to the relevant people. More direct path would entail emailing the HODs of the relevant subjects directly, if you can find their contacts.

I suspect it's highly unlikely to land a CAJT role without a prior relationship with the school, though - from what I understand, it requires them to use a vacancy that could otherwise have gone to permanent staff. You might want to explore taking up a FAJT role in the meantime.

understand. thanks for the reply.

i resigned end of last year due to burn out. but i wasn't able to secure a new job since then.

as my living expenses suddenly went up due to family issues, i suddenly need a more stable source of income instead of relying on giving tuition.

thats why i thought of applying to be cajt, while waiting for the trained teachers application window to open in june.

but u have a point that schools may not want cajt who has never taught there before. so indeed doing fajt for the time being while waiting to see if i can rejoin as permanent trained teacher might be a more workable route.

Ship has sailed already pal. Anyway, don't get doesn't mean you not good. Those are super ultra exclusive awards after all. Plenty of good people in service who never get to smell those awards.

It depends on school. My new colleague this year, wasn’t in my school before. She left the service about 3 years and couldn’t get any job outside suitable so she came back. If the school wants you, they will, from what I know, she told me is base on interview when the school calls you
