The Education Merit Scholarship (EMS) is offered to outstanding candidates with a strong passion for Education and teaching, for studies at the best universities both overseas and locally. EMS scholars will be given opportunities to hold top professional positions in the Education Service depending on their performance.
Because different teachers have different aspirations, the Ministry of Education has three career tracks or fields of excellence.
The Teaching Track provides professional development and advancement opportunities for teachers who are keen to further develop the pedagogical capability of the teaching force, with the pinnacle position of Principal Master Teacher. The Leadership Track gives you the opportunity to take on leadership positions in schools and the Ministry’s headquarters. If you are inclined towards more specialised areas where deep knowledge and skills are essential for breaking new ground in educational developments, the Senior Specialist Track is available for you.
There will be flexibility for lateral movements across the different tracks. Education Officers can choose to move across the different careers tracks, as long as they satisfy the standards and criteria of the job / career track they aspire to take on.
Like any other profession, career advancement is only limited by your own performance and potential.
