A well paid loser is still winner!

Teaching is still a very respectable job in Singapore, and relatively hard to get in, and quite good pay.

SH/LH is NOT a even a GEO5 responsibility, that’s why we are given responsibility allowance (RA) every year for taking on leadership role at a GEO level.
Get your facts right
When is the allowance given? In Dec every year?

Background story: a few years ago when I was still a NUS undergrad, I asked about the starting salary of new teachers. Thankfully some people posted their replies, so I had a better idea in my financial planning and stuff like that. So I hope to pay it forward for undergrads who are interested in teaching by stating my salary here.

Graduated in June 2015 from NUS, 1st class

June 2015: GEO 2 (Untrained), 3.9k (coincided with salary increments for all MOE teachers)

August 2016: GEO 2, 4.1k (completion of NIE PGDE)

June 2017: GEO 2, 4.3k (confirmation and merit increment due to performance bonus of C)

Oct 2017: GEO 3, 4.8k (promotion to GEO3 - ALL males who have served NS will be promoted to the next scale after a year; it's consistent across the civil service)

Does anyone know what qualifications one need to have to be a Discipline Master (DM) at schools?

Do you have to be a teacher to be a DM?

Thank you for the very helpful information..

Like to check with you...

- Was your Bachelors degree related to education? It must be, else why PGDE?
- During NIE, you were paid a salary of ? Between $3.9K and $4.1K?
- Was it tough studying PDGE? Did you get to decide what subject to specialise in?
- PDGE has Physical Ed as speciality I am planning to do humanities and PE...

Whats your advice for me if I am planning to teach social sciences and PE?
