SINGAPORE —  Non-graduate teachers with outstanding performance or deep experience will be placed on the graduate salary scale, said Education Minister Heng Swee Keat today (Aug 26).

Speaking at the Singapore-Industry Scholarship Award Ceremony at Concorde Hotel Singapore, Mr Heng said the Education Ministry (MOE) aims to implement this in the fourth quarter of this year.

Currently, experienced non-graduate classroom teachers who has made outstanding contributions cannot cross over the graduate salary scale without a degree.

This will change with the new performance-based emplacement framework which will benefit teachers at the classroom level, without requiring them to rise to leadership or senior teaching positions, or obtain a degree, said the Education Minister.

MOE will also study the possibility of merging the graduate and non-graduate schemes for teachers, announced Mr Heng.

This will allow graduate and non-graduate teachers to progress along the same salary scale, based on their performance and potential to take on larger roles, he added.
