I have read through this forum. It seems that there are contradicting accounts of how long it takes for a normal teacher to max out their payscale at ~7.8k.

I understand that not every teacher get to 7.8k. Most stagnate at around 7k? There seemed to be accounts of teachers who reached 7.8k (7.7k to be exact) within 15 years (while doing the minimum with an average C grade), and some teachers who are stucked at ~5k+ after 15 years.

Can someone clarify on this? Which exactly is the norm? After 15 years as a normal C grade teacher, what should be the expected pay?

TIA :)

10 years to reach ~7.8k? So results do matter?

returning ex-teacher
 
Does anyone know for an ex-teacher who manages to get re-appointed on permanent establishment, what's the pay like?

I know in MOE's FAQ, it's stated that the sub grade remains the same as the previous subgrade before leaving the service, and that additional increments can be given for years of relevant experience.

However, assuming there's no additional experience, and one does get re-appointed back at same sub-grade, would the pay be (minimally) the same as last pay at MOE before leaving, or start from the lowest in that subgrade?

Salary after 1 year of contract teaching when u enter NiE will be higher due to annual increment. There is no change in salary except annual increment. The increment is about $180 from $3.3k(contract teaching) to 3.5k (NIE).

Try relief teaching first. If u like teaching, then apply for NIE.

These few years it's gonna be very hard to enter teaching as positions all filled up. You may want to further studies or pursue other options and trying coming back to apply as mid career teacher.

Just completed my first year in service and successfully completed my probation. Just saw the pay slip today that came out, there was an increment. Was that due to the confirmation?

it could be the yearly merit increment

after graduating from NIE, you should be on the geo2(trained) scale and that will give you an increment after NIE. one year on, you'll get a merit increment. after promotion to GEO 3 you will get a promotion increment as well
