Wahhh. Is that why some other applicants here havenít gotten the final confirmation yet? Iím surprised you got offered PE instead cos itís usually the other way round - applied for PE but got offered other ďmore xiongĒ subjects.
:/ till you sign the official letter nothing is confirmed....Are u going ahead with it or gonna apply again? So sry to know about this...

I am shortlisted for STEM subjects....now i am wondering if it is because of that i did not make it for the Feb batch...

I think I will go ahead with it.. I told them to to let me think and call me back tomorrow.

But if they told me earlier, I might have been able to take the PPT earlier, join feb batch, maybe even join july 2018 PE NIE batch.. Just the thought of finishing NIE in july 2021 makes me go

That’s true. I wonder why they always take so long It’s good enough that they gave you a day to decide! I was only given an hour when I wanted to change level.

Lets hope the rest of us here will get into the June batch together! As long as we dont receive rejection letter we should be fine.

Nevermind that. They just called me. So very upset now.

In a nutshell: they asked me if i am okay to switch subject to PE cos of my CCA background and that they can't process me for my STEM subjects.. earliest start untrained teaching June 2018, earliest NIE intake july 2019.. T_T
Omg sorry to hear that. I guessed it could be because of a shortage of PE Teachers as I have heard from some of my teacher friends. I think got to resign to fate that I canít make it for the Jul nie intake for PE already.

Did they say for the June intake for untrained teaching, when is likely to sign contract?

hey, thought I'd share a bit, since i experienced something similar. They called (after I already went for medical checkup) to inform that they can no longer offer me the initial subjects and asked if I could change subjects, but I asserted that I'd like to stay rooted in geography because thats what I'm most passionate about. I also mentioned that I'll just try again next year if they really can't offer me the subject. HR then mentioned they'll make a note of it and the call ended. Days later, i got the appointment email!

Ultimately, it's up to you to decide if you wanna go ahead with the switch because it's important that you feel comfortable with the content you'll be teaching, but perhaps they're just trying their luck, since they have their own organisational demands to meet. All the best Bruce!
Thanks for sharing! Just hope everything works out fine, because even if I accept the change tomorrow, I still have to go through the mini-interview, and the PPT, and the wait

It'll be in all the emails. When you received this email, it meant that you're in the PGDE Program. And under this PGDE, you'll first need to do a contract teaching with your contract school. The details of your contract school will be out 1 week before reporting date. During this period, you're doing contract teaching. You'll have the duties as a regular teacher, just that you are untrained.

Key personnels (VP/P) will have to assess you on classroom management maybe at the 3rd or 4th month. I did mine on the 3rd month, this is the formal observation where they'll decide if you are suitable for teaching. If you are, then they will write in to NIE to recommend you to undergo the 16 month PGDE training. If you're not, then they might give you another chance or extend your contract.

Hope this helps
Oh wow i see. Thank you. Could you give me a brief timeline of the whole contract - pgde thing? Like initially it starts with the contract (x weeks/month duration) .. Then going to nie.. Im not too sure. I did ask them about the timeline and timetable during my interview but they didnt give me an answer. Also normally how long is this contract for the untrained teacher? I feel scared knowing that theres a possibility of being kicked out if the P/VP dont recommend me. :/

I am sorry that I cannot recognize those who has taken TL EPT. I think as long as your status is not changed to rejected, thereís still hope. They need time to settle things I guess.
