Default Higher Pay for Mid-Career Teachers

In a bid to attract more people to switch to teaching, the Ministry of Education has announced concrete HR policy enhancements in terms of remuneration and career advancement for mid-career teachers.

According to MOE's press release, about 22% of all teachers have more than 1 year of non-teaching work experience before becoming teachers. Kudos to these teachers.

However, mid-career entrants reportedly take pay cuts, sometimes drastic ones, to join one of the noblest professions.

Under the new policy, up to 80% of non-teaching work experience will be recognised. Previously, it was 50%.

On promotions, the press release says:
Quote:
"New mid-career teachers will have faster promotion prospects to bring them on par with their peers who took up teaching as their first career immediately after graduation."
To illustrate the enhancements, the press release also cited 2 examples:

-  A good honours degree holder with 5 years in the private sector will get a starting salary of $3,347. After gaining the Dip Ed from NIE in about a year's time, she can expect a monthly pay of $4,100. As a comparison, her last drawn salary from the private sector is $4,200. Not too bad.
- A pass degree holder with 11 years of experience in both public and private sectors, and a last drawn salary of $4,500, can get $4,221 as a start. After graduating from NIE, he can expect a pay fo $4,836 or even $5,373 with good performance. Nice!

Teachers are not in the list of top 100 jobs in Singapore.

no difference. but this was in 2007. in all likelihood, with the scaling up of hiring of teachers and possibly tighter budget amidst onslaught of deep recession, something got to give. so don't expect moe to match your last drawn pay, or even come close to it.
my 2 cents.
