any current/former ROs here have any advice about what bosses are looking out for when considering my CEP?

i've been doing well every year (C+s and Bs consecutively), but been told indirectly that my CEP is not high.

unfortunately there's not much coaching from my bosses on what i can do to be a better employee. whether i get promoted is not so impt, what's impt is my own personal growth to be a better employee.

any advice pls? thanks.
Are you a degtee holder? If so, is it recognized by MOE? Else it would be strange for your RO to hint that you have low CEP where you have veen getting Bs and C+.

CEP is usually recommended to be raised by a school-based panel when you are earmarked to take up SH/LH/AYH positions in the near future, or to be groomed into an ST. Unfortunately there is no openly published detailed set of criteria for this, but basically you have to demonstrate potential to cope in such positions - so, demonstrate ability to handle some form of management work and show some leadership traits while in your current jobscope.

It also depends on whether you are noticed, and make it known to your SLs and RO that you want to advance into management or teacher-leadership. Sometimes it helps to be direct rather than just sit there quietly waiting to be 'talent spotted'.

How many years have you been in service? If you are only GEO 2, your CEP is unlikely to be raised so quickly & since the expectation of lower sub grade is not as demanding, it is also easier for you to be getting Bs

It will be one year internal appointment first starting next year. As for my background, I would be considered an experienced teacher, but I definitely have less than 10 years in the service.



I will take on the internal SH appointment beginning next year.
Self
Since it痴 an internal appointment, I assume you have an HOD too? If so, it値l be good for you to clarify if this role is really something you want. You値l have to make some sacrifices, but there値l also be some rewards (both tangible and intangible). Manage your pace, don稚 burnout.

Others
Downwards: relationships with other teachers may change, especially since now you have to be somewhat responsible for their work too. They値l also look to you for advice. Remain humble.

Sideways: learn from experienced KPs, especially during SMC meetings. Not forgetting your HOD of course.

Upwards: manage their expectations. Negotiate workload if you can. Reading bosses is like what others say, very important.

Unfortunately, this is rather practical advice - at the very least, should try to figure out how to best support your SLs.

One thing that ppl often try to do when starting out is to attempt to do all the work by themselves - the scope of work increases drastically the further you rise; learn to delegate and assign good officers to help get things done.
