Exclamation Salary expectations for midlife career change of an Engineer

Hi

How does MOE calculate the salary for an engineer who wants to make a midlife career change to teaching ? What can he expect?

What are the bonuses like excluding 13th month?

This is for an engineer with a masters in mechanical engineering from NTU and with 15 years engineering working experience. He plans to join the MOE PGDE course.

Thanks

First, you have to get in. Then you will be given an offer. Then you decide to take it or not.

Chances are you won't be happy with the offer.

The salary offered to you would be around high 3k becos you have no previous teaching experience... you can expect perhaps just a small token on top of a basic fresh grad salary for taking the plunge into teaching... Your Masters is also irrelevant and thus will not help in securing you a better starting offer while you do NIE... Hope you are really going in for the passion of teaching ( and doing lots of mundane admin, dealing with demanding parents, nasty kids and burning your weekends doing ECA projects... ) Welcome to hell... be glad that you only need to suffer less than the rest of us...
