Anyway, for anyone starting or is doing the stint, a word of caution.
There can be teachers who will try to push the blame on you, or try to put you down because you are untrained. Personally experienced this as my RO sabotaged me. I have to stay in my school another year before intake to NIE because of my RO and the sabotages done toward me.

Whatever you do, be careful.

damn, that's rough. take care man.

Because one of my friends also didn't manage to pass the contract teaching, and he left.

Maybe he found it unsuitable for him? For me I’m still very passionate in teaching but it’s the other teachers that are killing it for me. Just need to endure for another year and hopefully I will pass into NIE next year

He don't want to wait. I also do know someone who cleared the contract teaching but didn't want to resume to go NIE because she feels it is not suitable for her.

Will you be doing it in the same school?

I don't think so, because it is like a probation try out for you. But once you accept the offer to go in NIE it will be bonded.

Hello. For those who have done / are doing your untrained contract stint, may I know if you’re given the full teaching load, same as other teachers in the school? Will you be given a form class and co curricular responsibilities as well? Thanks.

I just completed the teaching stint and have gotten the offer to go nie. Like what the others said, you'll get to leave sch once sch ends( can be 2 or 2.30 depending on your sch). There is normally 1 day of cca and 1 day of meeting after school. So I get to go back early 3 times a week.

I am giving the full teaching load plus cca. But I am not given any committee work. Teaching load is totally fine. In fact I rather teach then stay in office doing nothing. Time pass much faster. For salary wise, the salary is posted on their moe website. But additional sums will be given for males who have served ns and for working experience.

Hi may I know what subjects you teach? What are the expectations for an untrained teacher?

I don't really want to reveal what I teach else it's quite obvious who I am. Haha. But I teach in a secondary school in the West. But I believe expectations are the same no matter what you teach initially you won't be allowed to teach. You will just shadow a teacher, meaning you do lesson observations and writing notes. This would last anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. During this time you should ask any questions you have and take the chance to know the class(students name and who are the weaker and noisier ones), take note of how the teacher control the class. Your main expectations are to maintain positive discipline(not so easy). After this period you will go into Co teaching, where sometimes you will teach and other times the other teacher will teach(take turns lah), then if you are deemed good enough you will take classes on your own (the other teacher will not be there already). During my solo teaching (after I passed my assessments) be careful of Students that like to test you. I personally struggle with this even until today as I'm quite a friendly teacher. So students do try and push their limit with me and some do climb over my head. But overall, you must know the limit and control the class. Make sure students know your expectations. They do not use handphones in class, do not talk to one another for your 1 hour lesson(good luck enforcing this) and do not put their head on the table (sleeping). If any KP walks around and finds your class ill disciplined you might get into some trouble. Hopefully I didn't scare you lah. It's not that bad. I teach predominantly normal technical BTW, and they are a pleasant bunch(just very little interest in studies) , contary to popular beliefs.
