Sorry that this is not related to your question, but could you share with us how your PGDE application process was like last year? Like the timeline and stuff.

Thank you in advance!

Hope you can get the Counsellor role if that is what you really want!

Thank you for the reply, it does help reduce our anxiety haha. Regarding your Teaching application in 2018, did you receive the EPT email, Processing email, Careers@Gov application status change, etc too?

Thanks! Am trying to be patient as well I did not receive EPT email so I think I was cut off quite early on. I did receive the processing email at about 2 weeks after the interview. Careers@Gov status isnít very accurate imo. better check your email consistently

Hello all, I would really appreciate if anybody could give me some feedback/advice. I am 33, looking to do a mid career change into teaching or the counsellor role. I have applied almost 10 times but still no luck. I am from poly, went to university in Canada (famous in Ca not in Sg), worked in Journalism, now in an MNC. I know on paper my profile is not strong and im very willing to do a masters in education to up my chances to becoming a teacher. I applied again in July recently, but I got feeling Im going to be rejected again. I know NIE and NUS has masters in education (but that looks targeted at teachers). What else can I do? Please donít ask me to go for tuition centre, my goal is to be MOE teacher or counsellor. Thank you so much.

hi. my advice is to build up your teaching portfolio by providing tuition or doing training gigs. getting a wsq advance certificate in learning and performance may also help your chances. doing a masters in education would also help but worried that cost may be a factor. whatever it is, i wish you all the best in your pursuit. i know someone who applied and was rejected 13 times, but was successful during the 14th application. don't lose hope.

When was your interview?

Which EPT email you are referring to? the one taking to set the dates or shortlisting to go for EPT?

Did anyone receive a confirmation of shortlisted email in the latest application window? Has anyone gone for the medical checkup?

Take it as a blessing in disguise. I have many friends and close relatives who are MOE teachers and all suffer burnout.

Latest case: both husband and wife were MOE teachers for more than 10 years and both quit without a job this year. Rent out their prime district HDB and move back to parents place while they figure out their next move.

Anecdotally, what I know is that schools can be quite toxic, with school leaders who care only about their own career advancement. Your KPIs are based on many non teaching duties. The marking load is also very heavy in addition to all your non teaching duties.

Only PE teachers in JC do not have teaching duties.
