If you are constantly getting big fat PBs (B/A) in your previous grade, you're quite likely to draw a lower total annual package in the couple of years after a promotion.

but some people do seem to be having a very comfortable ratio... and the adjustment will probably make them more comfortable too...

I am not sure if the new ceiling for non KP holders will be GEO 5A. I sure hope it is for everyone. Every little bit counts.

Will all GEO 5 EOs progress to GEO 5A?

No. Only GEO 5 classroom teachers who have reached the maximum salary point of GEO 5 and met the performance criteria for promotion will be considered for promotion to GEO 5A.

Good-performing (sic) GEO 5 classroom teachers who are not at the maximum point of the GEO 5 salary range will not be eligible for promotion into GEO 5A as the GEO 5A subgrade is meant to provide a longer salary runway only for those who are already at the maximum salary point of GEO 5.

As per current practice, good-performing GEO 5 KPs who are eligible for promotion can progress directly to SEO 1.

From the FAQ:

"Only GEO 5 classroom teachers who have reached the maximum salary point of GEO 5 and met the performance criteria for promotion will be considered for promotion to GEO 5A.

Wonder if a KP stepping down from SEO1 will become GEO5A or GEO5 haha.

GEO5.

5A is designed as something to be earned under a specific set of conditions - i.e., already maxed out at GEO5 ceiling and also (still) performing a distinct cut above the rest of their peers.

Is it difficult to get into international sch to teach?

Does anyone have experience specializing in one subject after teaching for some time? What advice would you give on when to do this? And what are the pros and cons of doing so?

Yes, most of my school (a mainstream Sec school) does this. You get super rusty with your other subject after a few years. Not much drama - just have to be prepared to readjust to your other teaching subject if you shift schools or your school's manpower needs evolve.
