Interview for Arts/Music

Hey everyone

I'm a fresh graduate who recently applied to MOE and was just offered to attend the sharing session for Arts/Music teaching candidates and will be offered Arts(Sec) if i pass the interview (though Arts was not one of my choices, but still, my major is Architecture..)

So apparently, an Art Portfolio was required for the interview. However, given that I am a Architecture Student, the most I can offer will be an Architecture Portfolio. I'm wondering if anyone has attended an Arts interview and would like to know what was included in your portfolio?

And also, if there is any Art teacher here, could you share some experience on teaching Art? Such as, your timetable, salary or chances for progression?

I am still new to the working world, and very lost, so any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thank you

Hi Danielle, how I wish we had the sharing session in the previous window!

I applied for Art (Pri) in June. Graduated from SIT with an Interior Design degree and the main bulk of my portfolio consisted of Archi/ID stuff. The remainder were my still life sketches & paintings to make my portfolio more well rounded (Rushed them in the weeks leading up to my interview).

I did not have to present my portfolio to the interviewers. It was passed around the table and the interviewers browsed it at their own pace throughout the interview. Not too sure if it was a good or bad sign haha.

They will be a lot more interested in your 5min lesson, so focus on that. Take a look at the MOE Art syllabus online and you will be fine.

Thanks for replying! It is really helpful. One more question haha Is there any other assessment that potential art teachers need to take such as the EPT?

No, only left with EPT after the interview. The funny thing is that EPT is like russian roulette, it's impossible to predict who will get chosen haha.

Though recieving the EPT availability email after the interview is seen as a good sign! Looking forward to seeing a fellow spatial design student in MOE!

I did not receive the phone call yet, but from my experience and older posts, i think that they will send you an email and an sms regarding the sharing sessions before they call you in a day or two. Good luck!

And I believe you need to fill up the form before you can apply?

You can fill it first, it is one of the things to do before a interview
