This question seems slightly out of topic but I would like to know if i were to study diploma in education (art teaching), given that the allowance is between $1750-$2300 and assuming that I will receive the lowest ($1750), will my allowance stay stagnant for 5 years (2 yr study + 3 yr bond)? Or does it increase over time?

When you are studying, I think it will not change. The 3 years bond is considered working and salary probably follows your performance.

Also, any tips to ace the interview for pe teacher, I have went for the interview twice but got rejected twice... Sigh 😥

wait. isn't the appointment briefing today, 28 may?

If I am not wrong, different subject combinations or specialisation has different dates for appointment. For me, it will be 1st June.

Hi there, do search for Origamimosa's post. She mentioned about EPT test details. All the best!

Hey Bro, please don't feel bad. I went for 4 PPT but only manage to pass the 4th try. Similarly, I have attended two interviews where I was only to be offered at the 2nd try. In the mean time, do get yourself into a sport education related roles if it is possible. Presently, if you don't have full time job, do give relief teaching a shot.

Hey yes, I’m from the jan/feb batch! As to my knowledge, not everyone is required to sit for the EPT, maybe no news is good news so fingers crossed!

Hi!

The testers will simply give you random questions for both your written and oral test. It really is all about just wanting to see how you carry yourself, and if you speak coherently. When I went for my ELPT, I was asked to talk about the most memorable holiday that I had. It really wasn’t nerve wrecking at all. Just be mindful to not pepper your sentences with Singlish. Don’t worry about a thing, it will be ok!

Melodious wonderer ;

Sorry, I missed your message and not able to PM due to my lack of posts.

I just received an offer on 21st May. After almost 14 months of wait! Went through 2 interviews, 2 PPTs and 1 English EPT.

Will be attending the appointment briefing on 2nd June. Most likely contract teaching for 1 year because the next intake for pgde and dip ed (PE) is July 2021.

All I can say is be hopeful, understanding and extremely patient especially during times like this. Even before covid-19, demand for teachers has been low due to low enrolment, merging of schools and large number of teaching applicants etc.
If you have taken your medical, means it's a matter of time.

Actually, I attended the appointment briefing some time back but am slated to start untrained teaching stint 22june20. But I haven’t heard back from MOE on the school I am posted to etc.

Anyone in the same boat as me?
