Are u all poly or jc applicants?
It depends. Most here I figured are applying for PGDE, meaning we've already got our degrees. Quite sure there'd be some who just graduated poly/jc and are applying for other programmes still related to being a teacher. Hope this helps!

Quite sure they have your number, maybe they just don't sms to all applicants...

Yup about the EPT, hopefully I don't have to do it coz the test date is during my reservist.
Reservist is a legitimate reason, should be able to postpone your EPT if you need to take it

Yo helping my little sister to ask ya - fresh diploma holder.

She applied for the MOE Kindergarten Teacher Training Programme (to teach English) and just got informed she's shortlisted for an interview on 17 April. What to expect during the interview ah?

And any idea on the timeline after the interview?

Would really appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance!

Not too sure if it works the same as PGDE but there was a link indicated in the email where it tells us what to expect. Basically a 20mins essay writing (usually on the etiquette of a public servant / teacher), 5 mins of presentation on the subject you're assigned to teach and the usual "Meet the panel" on the why-s of joining (and just whatever other topic that they can link to during the conversation).

Timeline wise, think most of us are still at the waiting part but this is my timeline so far.

Online Application - 29 Jan 2019
Shortlisted For Interview Email - 4 March 2019
Interview - 14 March 2019
EPT Availability Email - 28 March 2019
Update on Application Email - 4 April 2019

Hi! I attended the MK untrained MTL teacher interview in 2017. I was shortlisted after the interview and had to go through a 5-day attachment at a MOE Kindergarten to be further assessed by the centre supervisor for suitability. During the attachment, it is likely that she will be required to probably read a story to a class of children as well. The entire process was about 2-4 months?

The interview was a normal Q&A session with 2 interviewers. They asked usual questions like why you want to be a teacher and asked if thereís any experience in working with young children.

All e best!
