I went for the interview for the untrained school counsellor position in the first week of January 2021. I was wondering whether there's anyone in the same boat as me. Would like to know if MOE has contacted you in regards to your application.
For an untrained teacher Geo 2, the range is 2000-4340. However, MOE does not disclose how they compute this but they take your academic qualifications, NS, experience etc. and what they offer you also depends on the prevailing economic conditions
Does anyone know how untrained PGDE trainees will be assessed during their contract teaching?
By how well they teach - with scoring system as they are observed during lessons? Or is it like "ok this trainee can at least demonstrate reasonable teaching skills and knowledge, so we will give him/her a pass".
Same timeline as yours. I heard from my teacher friend that indeed those she met in her school from dec 2020 batch applied in jan 2020. So 1 year processing time is normal. I hope if this is true, we should get the offer for july.
Would like to check with fellow mid-career applicants, anyone here has stated 2 months as your notice period?
(my employer actually requires us to serve a 2 months notice after probation is cleared, 1 mth if anytime before clearing - mine is due to pass in Mid June and I'll be applying for this batch's Jan 2021).
I'm afraid that they might only notify in June 2021 and ask to start the untrained teaching stint in July 2021.
