Hi guys, Iím going for interview on 13th July for Dip Ed Chinese, anyone too? My preferred subject is English but itís only offered to PGDE level. Does anyone know if I need to take EPT for both EL and CL if I passed the interview? My ĎOí grades for CLĖ A1, ELĖ B4 .

Background story.
Iím a fresh poly grad and have been working part time as a student care teacher for close to 4 months now. Basically, I guide P1-6 kids with their homeworks and assessments. The thing is I am supposed to be starting school in a private uni next month but Iím thinking of forgoing my place and wait hopefully for MOE outcome instead. Itís a 2 year programme (unrelated course) from June 2018 to June 2020 so I will not be able to study while waiting for MOE since the stint begins in Feb 2019 and the selection process will take up to 6 months (as heard from previous applicants). Mainly because if my application is successful, I would definitely want to withdraw from the course, but I wonít be able to get any refund for the tuition fees paid (this is really a great deal for me since Iím not financially well off). But letís say my application is unsuccessful, I will apply for SUSS part time BA English/Chinese, and after graduating, try to go for PGDE...

My point is that teaching in a school is something I really want to do and also picture myself doing in the future so I got to ace this interview!!

Sorry for sharing this here but would appreciate if you guys can take time and share your thoughts on this with me. Thanks!

They also sent SMS throughout about the email and calls to be expected. May I ask what subject did you applied for and did you just graduated from a poly too?

Hello! To those who have already started/finished contract teaching, do you have any tips/advice to those who are waiting to start? Was there anything you wish you had prepared or read up on?

I have some time before starting contract teaching in July so I hope I can put it to good use.

Thank you!

I've been doing relief teaching with actual teaching workload so here's my advice:

1) ask yourself how firm you can or want to be. You'll encounter scenarios where you'll need to show some flexibility or mercy. How will you do this without seeming unfair or biased in a classroom?
2) ask teachers you may know about classroom management techniques. It's easy to feel overwhelmed the first time you encounter a big class so get some advice while there is time

You will be attending the ITP workshop to prep yourself for contract teaching. So nothing to read up on. Every school works differently. It is up to you to learn as much as you can during this period.

Just enjoy yourself before contract teaching starts. Your life will revolve around work once you start.
