Unregistered SINGAPORE In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, state investor Temasek will be implementing a salary freeze for all its employees, including promotion increases, for its April compensation exercise.

Wah. Civil service is following suit? Cos temasek is like already representing government.

Thank you in advance!
Yes, you need to get C at least to be considered for promotion. All officers deemed ready for promotion will already had been assessed during ranking in previous work year before the names are submitted to HQ.

Many old teachers will never leave the service until retirement and the thing about this is that the young teachers will need to be (over)stretched to cover some of their duties. the number of young teachers entering is low now so those that were young are entering their 30s. many of them are now looking for career advancement or more time with their newly formed family. but many of the old teachers including SLs do not seem to understand that. as a result, they keep losing good teachers and subject heads becos many HODs and SLs are just looking after themselves first. I had one HOD who does not even strong subject mastery - I was like how on earth u get there? wayang probably.

if u meet a good RO, trust me they dun last very long - and side track - for some strange reason, the environment can make u very bitchy. dun join this line. low increment and politicking half the time. If u are not good, confirm sure get taken advantage of.

Educators are not soldiers. Why is there even a chain of command? What is stopping you from speaking to anyone?

If you have tried to speak to your RO but nothing has change, then yes. Definitely must let SLs know.
