ST, SH/HOD are identified and groomed by school management..

For ST, you must be very strong with your T&L and demonstrate strong curriculum leadership. It focuses on teaching and mentoring.

For GEO 5 teachers not on leadership track, only 1 out of 10 will eventually become ST. Your school must support you, endorse your for panel interview. Too be honest, ST ship is not glamorous, except you will eventually hit SEO 1 grade similar to SH. If you are in it for the money, supplementary external private tuition would have covered way more than SEO 1.

If you are good, the school would have identified you and groomed you. No need to chase after it. Too be honest, I would rather do what's required of a Happy Ordinary Teacher at GEO 5.

It seems like the school is not really interested in grooming you / deemed you as a ST potential since you mentjoned that they are leaving it to you to do your own thing.

Most classroom teachers max out at GEO 5. If you think the pasture is greener elsewhere, you can consider leaving during open posting

Most classroom teachers max out at GEO 5. In fact, many do not progress further beyond that. Unless your school has specifically identified you as a ST designate, else there is no need to bother with it.

Enquiry about ST

There is no general time limit.. it all depends on the quality of your portfolio and your Principal. If they are confident, they could send you for cluster interview at the next available opportunity...

So the key question is ... are they preparing you for the role.. that is the question.. if yes.. then build up your portfolio fast.. include everything significant things that you have done in the past.. if there is nothing much.. then take a year or 2 to build up.. while portfolio is one thing.. you must learn to think like an ST.. go and read up on some literature.. identify a pet focus area related to your discipline that you want to focus to strengthen T&L.

hope i address your query.

Technically, LH will assist in a subject that the HOD does teach (e.g. LH/Maths might split the levels with the HOD/Maths). Whereas SH is pretty much the IC of a subject within the department that the HOD doesn't teach (e.g. SH/Biology if the HOD/Science is not Bio-trained).

In practice, I've observed that schools may not really care about the distinctionÖ e.g. I've seen plenty of SH/EL or SH/Maths (which doesn't really make sense). But anyway, they are effectively equivalent in terms of 'rank' lah.
