You can definitely try for opening posting but be prepared to answer the question on why do you want to go HQ? If you are keen in specialist track, it is actually advisable for you to have a few more years of on the grounding training before you go to HQ.

You have to wait until the period of open posting (usually in end June or early July) and view the postings that are available. Btw, some postings in HQ will require you to have a minimum number of teaching years and also, you need to hold certain positions before they will consider you. If you have friends in HQ, you can always ask them about their jobscope.

Hi all,

I am a local teaching scholar. I am in my final year at NUS, and there is an option for master sponsorship (both local and overseas), subjected of course to successful interview and good results. May I know the tangible and intangible benefits of having a masters as a teacher. I have heard stories where pay increment is negligible with a masters as a masters is not a pre-requisite for the job. Will job prospect be better with a masters? Lastly, is there a difference between local and overseas Masters in terms of salary and job prospects.

Thanks for all the response!

I was like you in the past... I weighed my options and consulted my scholarship officer. You should too. Her advice to me was not to jump into a Masters so soon after my Bachelors, because my interests might change. In addition, MOE is the most generous govt ministry in offering Masters sponsorships for in-service teachers. We can also get professional leave e.g lower teaching load while we pursue Masters. Of course the Masters must be related to your subject or teaching, not MBA etc.

Finally, MOE looks at your first degree for starting pay. My friend who had Masters had slightly lower pay than me because he was 2nd upper class while I was 1st class. And having Masters doesn't mean you are promoted faster. Your contributions to sch and teaching still matter the most. My colleagues who pursued Masters while teaching did so mainly because of genuine interest to learn more, and also because MOE sponsors a large part of the tuition fees, like 80 percent. They were not promoted faster. And I know overseas scholars who had Masters, they were posted to ordinary schools in their first posting, not much preferential treatment.

In short: very little benefit.

Thanks for the insightful reply!
Could I also ask you, as a teaching scholar, is the prospect any better than normal teachers. I have heard teachers/people saying that scholars will be given better opportunities to facilitate their faster progression, yet I have seen scholars who leave MOE when their bond ends - kinda contradictory. If there are better prospect, why leave?

Lastly, why do in-service teachers take leave from working to further their studies. Is it purely to gain more knowledge, or are there other benefits as I do seem to see many teachers doing that while teaching.

Thanks in advance for the advice!
