PNG Teachers Pay - Do Not Pay Bribe to Get Pay Processsed at Waigani | Papua New Guinea Education Department

TEACHERS must not be paying fees to have their salaries processed, Education Department first secretary (financial services) Camillus Kanau says.

“It is wrong and must be discouraged,” he added.

Kanau urged teachers nationwide to report any officer in, both national and provincial, offices asking for inducements, charges and service fees to deal with matters on teachers’ salary matters.

He said there were processes in place in the department to deal with such officers.

He said a public notice had been released by the secretary’s office that demanding service fees and charges were tantamount to bribery and corruption.

Kanau also reminded teachers to always come forward with evidence when reporting such cases.

“We have asked teachers to provide copies of deposit slips if the transactions have been made manually and also statements if the transactions have been made electronically,” he said.

“This will help us to track down officers who are responsible so that we can report them to department secretary Dr Uke Kombra for disciplinary action.”

Kanau said regardless of the huge number of complaints from teachers, the department could not do much to help teachers without proof that payments had been made on the matter.

“If this is the case at the provincial level, then teachers must report the matter to their respective education advisers,” he said.

“But if it is at the national level, then teachers are urged to report the matter to this office with evidence.”

Teaching Credential Programs in Carlifonia - Becoming a Teacher

Becoming a Teacher: The most common path to becoming a teacher is to study a 4-year Bachelor's of Education (BEd) program at a college or university. However, teaching credential programs (also called the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education, PDGE) are a pathway for those who have a different first degree and want to train to become teachers.

Types of Teaching Credential Programs

California credential teaching program


The teaching credential programs are offered in elementary, primary and high school education. It depends on individual choice. The programs allow the students to receive support from the colleges and universities while they are working or pursuing a new career path. 

Those who want to train to be teachers can choose one of the following credential programs:

  • Single Subject Credential program
  • Multiple Subject Credential program
  • Education Specialist Credential program 

Online Teaching Credential Programs

Students have a choice to pursue an online teaching credential program or an on-campus program. The program advisors at the colleges and universities can help.

Most states in the US, and especially California, require at least two years of full-time study and on-campus lectures. The program also requires a supervised internship at a local school for up to 6 weeks. 

If you are going to study online, always make this clear during the interview. Ask the interviewer about the lectures, assessments, and online contact hours that are expected of you as an online student. And importantly, ask about how you will do your internship at the end of your online teaching credential program.

Three Credential Programs in California

Single Subject Credential program: This program prepares the students to teach a specific subject. The student-teachers are trained to become specialist subject teachers. They teach small groups of students such as those in most middle schools and high schools.

Multiple Subject Credential program: This program is for students who want to become kindergarten or elementary school teachers.

Education Specialist Credential program: This program prepares participants to teach young children, youth and adults with disabilities from elementary to primary and high school including those that are age 22 years old. 

Teaching Credential Programs Interview Questions

Here are 6 common questions that interviewers often ask during the Credential Programs Interview. Many of those interviews who shared their experiences say that it is important to 'speak from the heart'. Listens attentively and answer the questions clearly and honestly. 

  • What are your strengths? 
  • What does social justice mean to you?
  • Why do you want to become a teacher?
  • How do you approach difficult situations?
  • What do you hope to contribute to the teaching profession?
  • How do you communicate with students, parents, and staff?

Do not hesitate to ask questions. Especially, at the end of the interview when you are given the chance to ask any question. 

Mention that you are passionate about teaching and helping children and disadvantaged adults. Also, ask what kind of help you will need to complete the program. 

Hope these quick tips help. Please, do leave a comment and let us know what you think about the Teaching Credential Programs

Teachers Pay Slip Online - How to Register and Download Pay Slip | Papua New Guinea Education Department

Teachers Payslip Register and Download:  A new web-based app called the MyPaySlip Application will make it easier for Papua New Guinea teachers to access their payslips online. 

It (the online payslip) was launched recently (27th June 2019) by the new Education Minister in Port Moresby. The application is also available as a mobile app on Google Play.

Access teachers payslip app

The online payslip app is available via this link. Or click on the image above to the Tisa Payslip home page. 

The URL link is http://mypayslip.education.gov.pg.

(Maths Resources for Teachers & Students: If you are a Grade 8, 10 0r 12 teacher or parent, check out our FREE Maths Exam Resource and find out how to help your children.)

How to register

Only the teachers who register with their credentials will access their online payslips. That means that two things need to happen before teachers can access the payslips.

First, the teachers must register. The education department - TSC - needs to clearly articulate the 'how to register' guidelines to teachers so that they can register.

Meanwhile, there are indications that school provincial inspectors, with the help of the Education Department IT branch and app developers, will facilitate Tisa Online Payslip registration.

Second, teachers who register will be provided with login credentials. This is done as a security measure. In fact, this is a better way to safeguard your login details. And, also make sure no one other than you see your payslip online.

Teachers registration retails

As mentioned earlier, school inspectors (elementary, primary and secondary school inspectors) will be the point of contact for registration. 

So, teachers will have to provide the inspectors with their Teaching Service Commission (TSC) biodata. This includes your personal details such as:

  • First and last names
  • File number
  • Mobile number
  • Gmail/email address, and
  • Recent passport size photo.

In anticipation of the rollout of the Tisa Online payslip system, TSC would have communicated with the school inspectors regarding the manual registration process. For more information, contact your local inspectors or TSC direct.

The teachers can access their payslip online using smartphones, laptops or personal computers, or mobile devices with a connection to the internet.

*New* online payslip for PNG teachers

In the past, the Finance Department facilitated the wss online payslip for PNG public servants through this link wss.finanance.gov.pg. Though it was very useful, the finance department could not maintain it. All public servants registered on the wss network lost the ability to access their payslips online. 

This *new* online payslip for PNG teachers will, certainly, give the teachers the ability to check their payslips online. Furthermore, the online application is likely to address other pay management problems, such as ghost teachers/public servants, that may have existed at present.

One-position-one-pay concept 

It will also ensure the one-position-one-pay concept is achieved through the online payslip - a better approach to monitoring the teachers' pay.

During the launching of the online payslip Education Secretary, Dr. Kombra, has called on teachers across the country to use the term three holidays to register for the online payslip.

Clarity on 'how to register' for teachers payslip online

The challenge now is for the education department (and TSC) to roll out the registration across the country, efficiently and effectively. So that all teachers are registered with the Tisa Payslip Online. 

Finally, clarity about 'how to register' (how to get your login credential', what to attach and who to see...) for the Tisa Payslip application refer to the Education Department website.

You can also get information and application forms from your provincial school inspectors.

Teaching Service Fixation Agreement (2014-2016) - PNG Public Service Pay Scale

New teachers and those who do not know how you are paid, you are paid up Scales of 1 - 12 (TS1 – TS12) and across Grades 1 - 7. In other words, you move up the Pay Scale and along the Pay Grade. It can happen simultaneously or one at a time.

PNG Public Service Pay Scale
PNG Public Service Pay Scale


A review of teachers’ salaries conducted in 2013 agreed to a 33% rise in base pay over three years, 2014 - 2016. The increment came at the back of an increase in the number of students and teachers increased workload; as well as the increasing prices of goods and services. The increment was, in fact, an agreement set in stone and effective as of the first pay of 2014. 

By now all teachers, from preprimary to primary and secondary schools, should be paid the agreed salaries at 2016 rates.

An additional Service Allowance of 10% was also accorded to teachers and matured in 2016. This additional increase means that between (and inclusive of) 2014 and 2016 teachers’ total salaries (TOTAL SALARY = BASE SALARY + SERVICE ALLOWANCE) increased by 43%. 


Teachers, perhaps it is important to know your pay scale and pay grade. Knowing the two will help you to determine whether you are receiving the right salary or not. The diagram shows the increase – take particular note of 2016 salaries.

The Teaching Service is now accountable to teachers after the three years, 2014-2017. The TSC has got to do its work right. At the moment, two questions needed answers from the commission, TSC:

1. Are the teachers paid at 2016 pay grade?


This is a serious question and only teachers and school administrators know whether they received the promised increase or not. Make it your agenda in school staff meetings. Confirm your pay scale and pay grade. Make sure you are paid your dues. 

If you are sitting on a confirmed position (by this I mean a confirmed pay scale and pay grade); and not paid the right amount, raise it immediately and asked for a back payment.

Note: Do not waste your time if you are acting on a substantive level. Do not try to claim at that pay scale as you will not be entertained.

2. When is another review due?


According to the Teaching Service Fixation Agreement 2014-2016, another review was due on the 1st of January 2017. I hope TSC has not gone to sleep on it. 

This review has to be considered urgent. It is already overdue. The TSC, Education Secretary and Education Minister (in the new government after the June elections) must make it their number one priority. 

Having said that, the TSC commissioner and Education Secretary should initiate the review NOW. They shouldn’t wait. Another 3-year review (2018-2020) has to be swiftly done and submitted to the new education minister as soon as s/he is appointed to the role in the new government. 

All in all, increasing the price of goods and services and overcrowding in classrooms; capped off with a mountain of work, teachers deserve another pay increase. TSC must think right – take the lead, and urgently initiate a review of teachers’ salaries, service allowance and leave entitlements.

Happy Christmas Teachers | Have You Got Your 10% Increment Government Promised You in 2013?


Many Papua New Guineans are looking forward to a good holiday. Some will travel home from towns and cities. Others will travel to see the bright lights of Lae and Port Moresby. Many will have stayed where they are. 

Cost of transportation and accommodation are very high. They may not be able to get through the holiday if they had not stayed back. One group of public servants are finding it really tough – the teachers. Their sentiments are shared on PNG Teachers on Facebook, a group of over 2500 teachers in the country. 

Unlike other public servants; teachers are poorly paid, overworked and often neglected at this time of the year. One of the main concerns they raised online was delay in Leave Fares. Though it is mandatory that eligible teachers are given their leave fares, the delay has been chronic and remains a yearly occurrence. 

Another yearly problem that affects our teachers is timely release of Boarding and Duty Allowances. Any teacher who does boarding duties throughout the year is entitled to this allowance. Why have many cry foul over non-payment? 

When Dr Puka Temu announced a Christmas Gift for the hard working members of parliament in November 2013, he also declared 7.5% increase for general public servants pay with a 2.5% concurrent increase to 2016. The MPs got their 7 % increase backdated to January 1st of 2013 are enjoying the other increases this year, too . But, the question of whether other public servants got their promised increment remains to be answered.

Teachers are not able to determine their pay grade. This is simply because many of them, especially the new graduates and teachers in remote locations, have not got their pay slips. Some may not even know what a pay slip looks like as they have never got one. 

So, how much are the teachers paid? The salaries are calculated by adjusting to a midpoint salary. In other words, an average is calculated from Pay Grades 1 to 12. The averages for 2014, 2015 and 2016 are K21 000, K23 100 and K25 410 respectively. This gives an impression of a total increase of 30% (7.5% x 3 yrs + 2.5% x 3 yrs) That means that the government would have been paying the teachers a 10% compounded increment between 2014 and 2016. That is a good news for teachers. 



Click here for teachers' pay structure. The challenge now is to ensure the government remains true to its promise to underpaid teachers. Teachers’ representatives from PNG Teachers Association have to highlight problem areas. There is never a better time to do it, than now. 

Put a stop to delays teachers face with getting their leave fares, ensure they get their boarding and duty allowances on time and get their pay slips to them where ever they are. Above all, the pay increments have to be evident in teachers’ pay. Have they got the increases for 2013 and 2014?
