Unregistered My perspective as a HOD (and former HQ officer):

The fact that you're doing a mandatory posting in HQ is a good sign already. Entry level EO roles at HQ are generally SEO1 'estab', so it's equivalent to doing SH/LH role in school. If you manage another B (or C+), think GEO5 would probably come soon enough.

That said, keep in mind that ranking at HQ tends to be more competitive (you are compared against other high-performing officers) and it would be harder to get B. Still, if your bosses value your work, your CEP might possibly go up another notch. You'll likely need to head some project teams while at HQ for this to happen, though.

If you stay on with MOE, after your HQ stint you are likely to be able to secure a SH/LH position when going back out to school (HOD is possible; but rarer if you've not been appointed KP previously).

--

Just to comment on your previous 'B' streak in school - despite what your comment, I think that is a very positive sign, as it implies that your RO/HOD actively helped to push for that grade, ultimately with the endorsement of school leaders. Even if it might not have seemed like P had taken notice of you, he/she clearly supported designating you as high-performing staff.

If CEP had been raised to SEO1 level, this is another good sign. Teachers start with GEO5 CEP by default. Someone had to actively suggest your CEP to be moved up - and P would have had to endorse it. Very few non-KP (maybe 1-2 in a school) would have CEP higher than SEO1. Even SEO1 CEP would not be all that common.

In summary: if you truly enjoyed working as a teacher, please don't be discouraged by what you perceive as poor career advancement. I think you're doing pretty well already!

p.s. If you're feeling discouraged in the future and feel comfortable enough doing so, I also suggest having a frank discussion about these matters with your RO. I learnt a lot discussing such matters with my DD (a former VP). Recognise that this depends on the type of ppl your bosses are, of course.

end-2019, got a mandatory posting to hq. started this year. last yr i found out by accident from my previous sch that my CEP is SEO1. i have nv held a KP position before. was a little disappointed tbh.

just wondering:
- at my current stage of career, is it likely that my CEP will be raised further?
- when can i reasonably expect a promotion to GEO5 if my CEP is not raised?

Query about CEP

hi all (esp ROs)

i'm a GEO 4 officer and here is my career history. i'm a guy, degree from NUS, 2nd class upper.

Jun 2014: graduated NIE.
2014 grade: C+
Oct 2015: GEO3
2015 grade: C
2016 grade: B
2017 grade: B
Apr 2018: GEO4
2018 grade: B
2019 grade: B

end-2019, got a mandatory posting to hq. started this year. last yr i found out by accident from my previous sch that my CEP is SEO1. i have nv held a KP position before. was a little disappointed tbh.

just wondering:
- at my current stage of career, is it likely that my CEP will be raised further?
- when can i reasonably expect a promotion to GEO5 if my CEP is not raised?

i'm just thinking of all of this because i think i'm an okay performer, but so far not much luck career-wise. bosses are okay with me but no principal/leader has really paid attention to me at work. thinking that once the economy improves, i'll seek greener pastures but i also enjoy the work of a teacher.

appreciate any advice. tks!

Is the increment from 3 to 4 less than 300 usually, or is this just a really crappy year?
I guess in this current climate, just lucky to have a meaningful job lol.
Last year also less than 500.
