Change in Starting Pay

Hi all,

I have been a silent reader of this really helpful thread! I'm scheduled for an interview for PGDE GEO next week, as a mid-career switch.

I noticed that the GEO starting pay has dropped! For PGDE, it previously started at 3.1k, but now it's 2.9k (amended Oct 2018). Does anyone know the approximate annual increment? If offered, will I be allowed to negotiate for a higher salary, as long as its within range?

Thank you!

Wow really. I wonder what’s the reason behind the drop. Hmmm. From my understanding, mid career teachers would start on a diff pay scale. If I’m not mistaken it’s 80% of your current. Not sure if they have updated that as well. Would need to check. 😅

Good luck for your interview!

Haha this was in my attachement

Presentation Task

“Before the start of the interview proper, you will be asked to give a 5-minute lesson presentation on your first teaching subject, pitched at the level you have been shortlisted for. Do prepare for the presentation beforehand.”

Maybe they have diff instructions for diff candidates ?
ohh haha that could be the case 😅 mine is:

“You are to present in English if you have been shortlisted for an English-medium subject, and in the appropriate Mother Tongue Language if you have been shortlisted to teach in the Chinese, Malay or Tamil-medium. If you have been shortlisted to teach English Language (Pri), you may choose to present on either the first or second teaching subject.”

Hi Nejezs, no worries, thanks for the reply and clarifying with regards to what subjects we can present on!

Agree that math is easier to come up with a topic and present on haha!

Do you mind sharing what topic you presented on and how the interviewers tried to disrupt your lesson?
I presented on P5 - Decimals, multiplication by 10, 100 and 1000. My interviewers are fairly kind. One of them just told me that she don’t understand so i just repeated at a slower pace and checked with her thereafter. I think I have it easier as compared to others haha
