Hi guys, I will like to ask if anyone here knows the remuneration scheme during our contract teaching and nie studies?

Are we only entitled to monthly salary and 13th month? we do not have the PB and mid/end year bonus right?

Thanks!

good question, the website states that trained teachers are elgible for the other bonuses. So by inference , i supposed untrained teachers might not qualify for the mid/end year bonuses. PB is def not possible as you are under training(either in school or NIE)

Apart from the 13th mth, during contract teaching & NIE trg, u are entitled to PB & mid year bonus - pegged to a C grade performer because still under trg, MOE wants to be fair to all trainees, so they pegged you to C graders for PB.

From my understanding, PE Teacher needs to take up additional 1 or 2 subjects apart from PE.
No, the new PGDE PE programme is now a single subject (PE & Sports Science) but u will be trained in both the Pri/Sec level, so it depends on yr luck after your trg as to where they may post u either pri or sec schl.
No more like in the old days where PGDE PE you will teach PE and another teaching subjects.

For some secondary school, they have another O level subject - Sports Science. so the new breed of PE teachers posted to sec schl will have to teach that - but again only certain Sec schl offers Sports Science for O level.

Does anyone know how long will the posting be out after the appointment briefing? And what to expect for the first day at work?

Posting of school will usually be out 1 week before your assumption of duty date (you have to do 4.5 days of Intro to Teaching Programme before going to your school anyway).

No need to be anxious about the posting unless you don't receive any updates 1 week before your AOD.

First day (AOD date) - it will be at AST and it will mostly be briefings. There's not much to expect. Just get through the 4.5 days without incident.

First day in school - you will report to school in the afternoon of your 5th day (after the intro programme is finished in the morning) - it is mostly administrative stuff like getting your desk, finding out your timetable, maybe signing up for your online accounts. You will hopefully be assigned a reporting officer and mentors that you'll be following. Just be ready to take in a lot of information and maybe meet quite a lot of new people.

When i was at the signing , i saw a few non-locals being selected(or at least i think they were as their chinese accent was quite thick) for chinese language PGDE. So i guess if you are Singaporean & good at chinese/mandarin you should stand quite a good chance to be shortlisted for the interview as it is no secret that for civil service jobs, first priority goes to Singaporeans first.

The others in my opinion would be English, literature , Arts and music.

The mathematics and sciences would be rather congested.

If you want to increase your chances, apply for primary school over secondary as they need more teachers at the primary school level.

Is it true? Iím SPR for 15 years and Iím a Chinese national. I donít have any accent for my native language. I can speak mandarin at reporter level. Clear and nice. I graduated from NTU EEE. I got interviews from MOE only for primary Chinese level, I went for medical check and had been rejected. I read quite a lot of Chinese Literatures, including ancient and modern ones.

So, what say you?
