Topic Review (Newest First)
Today 07:45 AM
Unregistered Hai actually i feel alot back stabbing and politics. Due to ranking and "fame". Many just want to wayang and not for teaching.

Education is like least in teachers heart i feel......
Always thinking if i should quit when I am just officially in MOE
Today 01:20 AM
Unregistered Recurring topic here but I just need to get it out...

Just feeling the yearly jadedness because ranking is near and promotion is just over and got passed over again.

I know the exact reasons.
- I did not explicitly ask to be groomed.
- I am less caring of my own branding.

I think the system we grew up in encouraged us to think that as long as we do our work well, we get rewarded fairly.

The real world is more about luck, networking and presenting oneself as well.

From what I can tell, he is quite overworked and is looking for a deputy to assist. For context, I was just promoted to GEO3 this year. Anyone who was in a similar position? Thank you!
I find this a bit strange. Basically, joining KP Ship is entirely up to SLs. HODs can recommend but at the end of the day, it is SL's decision. Having said that.. you mentioned that you just got promoted to GEO3, it means, you will definitely take some time to go to GEO4 in this current climate.. let's say 3 years (including covering role).. I dont think anyone can promise you that LH position will be reserved for you.. what is heartening is that with your RO saying that he is grooming you, it shows that he has a good opinion of your performance. . Do continue to work hard.. if all things works out well.. then good for you. but do be mentally prepared . 2-3 years.. many things can change..

Unregistered The requirement is just GEO4 at time of appointment (and minimum CEP lah). So if school has been grooming and monitoring the officer's progress, can push for interview as soon as promotion kicks in.

1) If I successfully passed the interview and start on a contract teaching scheme, what is the salary figure that I will be expecting?
2) What GEO rank might I be offered given my work and tuition experience?
Thanks.
Likely you need to take a pay cut. It is common for mid career switchers coming into moe to get a lower pay. Probably only recognise your work experience, not so for private tuition

Unregistered don't join MOE, it's a trap. just go straight to tuition. got my condo at 30 fully paid hehe. you get both passion and money

He's the HOD.

Thanks for sharing guys. Will continue to work hard and learn more for sure, but it would be nice to have something to lookaim towards as well.

Your promotion from GEO3 to 4 is still very much dependent on your performance and CEP. Iíve heard of people who were promoted from 3 to 4 in consecutive years. But thatís because they obtained a B in the year they were promoted to 3, and we suspect they have high CEP.

If youíre doing the work of an LH this year while in GEO3, thereís a chance youíd be graded B this year. If thatís the case, coupled with higher CEP, then itís possible youíd be promoted to 4 sooner.
