Why should it be difficult to get a seo1 CEP? If an officer with aspirations is denied even SEO1 CEP, then they will not have any advancement prospects at all. Some teachers are happy with that because their goals are very clear: just to be a happy ordinary teacher all the way. But many teachers also have aspirations, and many teachers can be trained into good leaders if given the right opportunities and a nurturing environment.

The door is only closed on teachers who show, from very early in their career, that they have no potential whatsoever to be trained into a leader. This really only applies to the poorest performers.

Unregistered Am wondering how schools go about this process of changing an officer’s cep. Like mentioned earlier, any young officer demonstrating a desire to climb and he/she showing some abilities will get seo1 cep easily. Feels quite easy to get a seo1 cep. What about seo2?

Not at all. It doesn't even go into your EPMS form (unless you insist) and it doesn't factor into the discussions by the ranking panel. After a year or so your RO will probably not even remember your practicum grade, if they knew it in the first place.

Unregistered no. But initial impression does count. Even if you don't ace your practicum, but you are observed by KPs to demonstrate strong potential to think and perform at a higher level, it will help

Extremely rare, but I have seen before. PSC scholar after 2nd year of trained teaching, just before going to HQ. CEP is higher than that of a HOD-equivalent.

If you want to be appointed with SEO1 CEP, the only way to go apply for OPE yourself.
To add another perspective - maybe the schools I've been in just aren't quite that competitive, but SH positions often went to officers with SEO1 CEP. Definitely not enough to cater to all; but not everyone is seeking higher appointment either…

Yes, possible. In my experience, usually the very capable type, who's happy staying a HOT (e.g. focusing on family).

For SEO1 CEP - relatively common (but definitely less than the majority), yes, but in my experience it's seldom the case that all of them are actively seeking higher appointment at the same time. Some are happy staying as HOT; some still feel they're not quite ready to make the leap. For those who end up feeling frustrated at the lack of opportunity within the school, applying out is a valid pathway.
