Is it possible to take part-time masters while teaching? I understand there is a list of approved masters, but there are some criteria like minimum 2 years of teaching etc. What if you want to study something else by yourself? Need whose approval?

It's possible. There's some criteria, which I can't recall now. You'd probably need the P's approval, although I have heard of cases where the teachers didn't declare they were taking the Masters. But you'd have exams, and might need to take leave, so the P would know eventually.

I'm also interested to know actually, and what kind of masters programme do teachers take. Most teachers simply take masters from NIE, which I would not be very interested in.

I took a masters degree in chemistry at NTU and there were a secondary school teachers who was in my cohort.

She subsequently quit teaching though to help her husband biz once we graduated even though she had been a teacher for more than 10 years.

It is definitely possible. You can either take it through PDL (Professional Development Leave) subjected to Principal's approval, or take it on your own and apply leave as and when you need to.

If you're thinking of part-time, my recommendation is that you talk to the P about it. After all, the P needs to approve your leave for exams anyway. Usually my friends who take part-time masters that is outside of NIE, are just waiting out their bond while getting a masters, so that they will have a master's qualification when they leave service.

However, if you are thinking of moving to the leadership track (superscale etc.) or HQ positions, you should consider Masters offered by NIE, as that will probably escalate you faster.

There are officers who get promoted in Oct, but these are usually made known by Apr together with the other Apr promotions. I remember getting a letter (through Principal) that basically said something to the extent of "you will get promoted this Oct unless you screw things up".

So if you haven't heard anything by now, think you'll have to wait for next year…

Hmmm so mean those unique cases that got two promotions in a year would have known them both in apr?

No double promotions for individual officers. What I mean is that every year, all promotees (whether getting in Apr or Oct) should know by Apr.

I actually applied for a teacher post few years ago but was rejected and applied for the allied educator position instead. I was selected and worked as an AED for 4 years.

I suppose with a degree and 4 years of teaching experience, I would be a better candidate for their selection. Besides, I had experience setting exam papers and conducting independent classroom teaching in the school.

However, this is already the 5th week and I haven't received any calls. I am really disheartened.

What should I do?
