I just found out that I got rejected for my relief teaching application. Has anyone come across this before?

Mid careerist and graduated from NUS 7 years ago. I had wanted to apply for a full time position but thought that I should try relief teaching first. What should I do now?

Any advice will be much appreciated!
You can actually apply the PGDE on Career@Gov in Aug which is the full time position. If you successfully get offered, you will have a 1 year contract teaching starting in Dec, which is sort of like probation for you to try out and also for MOE to access your suitability. If at the end of contract teaching you do not wish to continue, it is ok because the bond only starts when you enter NIE for training.

For relief teaching, after you apply on the REMS portal and get approved, you need to go to schools to ask if they have vacancies. Rarely they will call you up. You can reapply for the relief teaching on 1 Jul under SRE in the REMS portal.

Thanks for your sharing and advice! Are we allowed to prepare worksheets to give to students?
you can prepare posters/flash cards etc but probably best not to give out worksheets. there isn't much time when it comes to the lesson presentation!

Thanks b4zabeat and Loveteaching. Called MOE and the CSO told me to apply again.

Will also apply the full time position in August. Was told that my rejection for the relief teaching application would have no bearing on the full time application.

I went for the interview at 1st July and I am thinking to reapply for teaching during the August round if I didn't get a reply after 4-5 weeks time. Have anyone tried applying again in the immediate round before? Or do I need to wait for a certain period of time before I can reapply for teaching again?

Can anyone advice me?

Recommended to wait for 6 months before reapplying again, because there is some sort of cooling off rule. Means it may be better to wait until next year Jan to reapply if you need to.

yes best to wait for next round to apply again..but no harm just applying immediately also ah.i applied immediately after i failed my 1st attempt before. Was rejected without the interview opportunity. Applied the 3rd time then was given the opportunity to interview.

Hello to all. Does anyone know the structure of the 5 mins lesson presentation and if any tool of presentation is allowed? Thank you!
hey i applied for primary sch eng.(1st subject). The 5mins presentation was mostly focused on classroom management. i didnt manage to complete the 'lesson' becos the interviewers pretended to be kids and kept interrupting the lesson. I think they just want to see if ur able to keep ur cool and how u manage children when there are interruptions. It wasnt content focused in my case. I prepared worksheets!

Thanks for sharing! How many interviewers were in the panel of interviewers? Did they ask you many questions pertaining to your lesson presentation later on?

There were three!Not a lot of presentation related questions were asked. They only asked me which part of the presentation I thought I had done well in and which parts i thought i could have done better. and they also asked some questions pertaining to changes to the system and how i feel about it. So it wld be better to read up on the latest changes (esp if ur applying for pri sch cos quite a lot of changes) And also the basic why do u wanna teach, what kind of teacher do you want to be what are ur strengths..
