Hi! Has anyone gone for the 5 day stint? Wondering if anyone could share their experience here (what is expected of us, what we’ll be doing, is it tough, i heard we’ll be shadowing the teachers? What’s that like) ☺️ im so nervous for mine and i dont know how to prepare for it

During the AF they’ll tell you that it is based on organisational requirements. But they’ll try to deploy within 1h15mins travelling time.
That being said, I know of someone who is deployed quite far from her residential address.
Can u describe what happens during the AF session? I received an email to attend one

OH wow been a long time since I logged in here. I'm currently doing my 9-month course at NIEC, going for my 3rd and final practicum next month and completing the course very soon in November!!! Regarding deployment, they will only inform you after graduating, I think.

For the 5-days stint, its really fun, you don't have to do assignments or anything :) Just be an assistant and shadow your main teacher, talk to the kids etc. Unlike practicum, we have lots of assignments to do while being attached to the centre. I'm doing MTL btw.

Hi guys, no worries :) Yes, reading the big book is the only “sit down and teach” part. For the 5 days stint there’s no need to do lesson plan or teach. You will get to do that only when you’re in NIEC doing Prac 3. Just sit there, observe the class, interact with kids and assist the teacher. You won’t be alone cos you are the main teacher’s “shadow” haha! Nope, I scored A1 for my O-Level so I was not required to take a proficiency test.

You mentioned you did MTL, so the lessons in NIEC are all conducted in MTL?
