MOE's salary adjustments for Teachers

Postby AceTutors123 » Sun Sep 02, 2012 10:07 am

Salary Adjustments for Education Officers and Allied Educators

1. More than 26,000 in-service Education Officers (EOs) and about 500 Allied Educators (AEDs) in several grades will receive a salary adjustment with effect from 1 September 2012. The adjustments will ensure that the salaries of our EOs and AEDs keep pace with the market and commensurate with their roles and responsibilities.

2. Teachers play an important role in preparing our children for the challenges of the 21st Century, which have become more demanding and complex. They also play a key role in equipping our children with core values, social and emotional competencies and cross-cultural skills that are critical for character and citizenship development.

3. Integral to the school team are the AEDs who support our teachers in teaching and learning, and in managing the counselling and special education needs of our children in schools.

4. The Ministry of Education is committed to attracting, developing and retaining a quality school team.

5. The serving EOs in various General Education Officer (GEO) and Senior Education Officer (SEO) grades will receive an 8% salary adjustment. GEOs and SEOs can expect an increase of up to $550 and $830 respectively to their gross monthly salaries.

6. The AEDs in various grades will receive salary adjustments ranging from 5% to 15%. Allied Educators can look forward to an increase of up to $700 in their monthly salaries.

7. Eligible officers will receive the salary adjustments from the September 2012 payroll onwards.

Wow, I really wasn't aware that senior teachers are drawing as much as $10k a month. No wonder MOE teachers can charge so high for private tuition, especially one-on-one. Assuming 20 working days a month, a senior teacher would earn $500 a day. Giving 8hrs of work per day, they are paid about $62.50. So here we have a base rate of $62.50/hr for experienced teachers. And this rate does not include travelling time and cost.

I think those who earn 10K would be the senior Principals and not senior teachers.

The teachers are only allowed to work 6 hrs outside their Sch job scope.
But it's unlikely they will have much time left after school hours and miscellaneous task.

Errr.. How did u know that they are drawing $10k per month? Where to find those info? Did u use the 8% n work backward to get $830 or 5% n work backward to get $700. Normally,low %-mid % for high salary n mid-high % for low income.. Maybe taking average is about right. So, 10% adj n get $700 increment for AEDs, so monthly salary about $7k or 8% adj n get $550-$850 increment, so monthly salary about $7-9k for GEOs and SEOs.

Just my 2 cents for top teachers, still high!

We did pay them well and why we are not getting what we are expecting! Just wonder how did they allocate the resources pf GEOs, SEOs and AEDs to all schools? :? Can we assume all SEOs and GEOs are principals and senior HOD?

Why don't they channel the funds into engaging staff (create employment at the same time) to handle admin duties and organise activities and related crap duties..

And let the teacher focus on teaching and do a better job instead.. as suggested in other forums..

Agreed with limlim on the above pointers! And may I ask does the increment apply to pre-school / childcare teachers?

That's what Allied Educators are for, right?
