The long anticipated rejected email is out. So i guess no EPT email= unsuccessful
Yup, I received my rejection email this morning at 9:15am too.

I went for my interview on 3rd July, Wednesday. Primary school (Eng & Maths).

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.
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.

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

Hey, may I know if you received an email on EPT? By the way, don't give up! Try again for the next round.

Donít give up! Keep on trying. I have a friend who applied 9 times and got in on the tenth try. My point is, keep on trying if you have the passion to teach. Have faith. In the meantime. You can teach at CDAC, Sinda or Mendaki. There are good courses thru these tuition programmes that tutors can partake.

Any PE teachers here on 25th July? My status just changed to shortlisted. Maybe we can update one another😄. Anyone can also share how many more stages do we have to undergo once our status has been changed to shortlisted? TIA!
