How does a C- affect your teaching career?
Hi all asking all teachers or civil servants who may know something about this. I recently got told by my RO that I received a C- grade ranking. Essentially this means that I would not be getting my performance bonus and my promotion to the next grade will also be held back for at least three years.
I am honestly quite distraught because I received this rating because of some mistake I made regarding internal school examinations, no students were affected but still, a mistake. They also told me that my contributions to the school were also above average but because of this mistake I was given a C-.
I am seriously considering switching to the private sector where the grading won’t haunt me for the rest of my career. I’ve been getting consistent B grades for the past 4 years and it seems like everything I achieved so far has been for nothing.
Would like to hear from fellow public servants what they think because this is such a sensitive issue and my RO doesn’t really know how this will affect me in terms of career progression. Either that or he/she doesnt wanna tell me
On the bright side, I did get a 5% increase in my salary.. only slightly lower than this year’s inflation rate! 😀
