There is demand for primary school teachers. If you meet the criteria and are found suitable to be a teacher, you will most likely be offered (i.e. you won't face undue difficulty getting in because of lack of demand).

Starting pay definitely differs. The length of study for both courses are not the same but at least if you are placed on the same scale, you will be able to catch up

But if u prove yourself to be capable and with the change in govt approach i think is fine

Of course I do understand that this is how the system works, since Degree holders spent more time and money getting the education levels they have and so on.

I am just very concerned, is it true that Diploma holders take many years to progress? (I read somewhere in this thread that there were a couple of teachers who were stuck in GEO1 for 5-7 years before they could progress up to GEO2 and the same duration applies from GEO2 to GEO3). With this in mind, I would like some advice and clarity on the below:

(1) If I were to continue with DipEd, after completion of the 2 years studies, will I be able to upgrade myself with a Degree during bond period? Will my salary scale and progression opportunities be increased and assessed as a Degree holder then?

(2) Im also seriously considering if I should go for upgrading to get a Degree, then enroll in the PGDE programme after. Will this be a better option? But then I will have to give up my DipEd chance.

(3) If I were to give up my DipEd chance to upgrade myself, will this affect my chance in my application for PGDE in future?

Thanks in advance
If you do relatively well for diped, you will be given chance to cross over to degree programme after 2 years
