Hi everyone. I am trying to apply to NIE and it has been almost a year since i started relief teaching in my current primary school. The school has agreed to write me a letter to help me with my application. May I know what would be good for them to include in my letter? Does anyone here have any letters written for them by the school before? Thank you!

Basically, your contributions to the school! What have you been involved in/were involved in. If it's something related to your subject combo of choice, then that'll be even better. A letter recommendation/testimonial should serve to put you in the best light of your teaching experiences, contributions as well as your strengths and interests.

Hi.

Anybody who’d gotten an email on 12 Jan stating that the news of your offer would be delayed till 8 June(today), still waiting to receive any news from them?

The last I heard from them was on that 12 Jan, before my medical appt in March. Now I’m really worried if there’s going to be another delay again. 🥺

Hi there hzlntmlktea, I'm in the same boat and am worried that there may be a delay again. The wait is exhausting 🥺

Guys, indeed it’s true. There’s another delay.😔 just mentioned that due to Covid restrictions and the recent Heightened Alert that more time is required. So the earliest start date will now be....from Dec 2021.

And I’m from the Jul-Aug 2020 batch. I’m truly at a loss for words.

Just one positive takeaway that I have from all of this agonising experience is that it is still not a “No”. Just...gotta wait. So yea guys, still waiting.

@thelittleflower , are you from Jul-Aug 2020 batch also? I wonder how many more there still are from this batch.

Hey hzlntmlktea. Like you, I received the same email on Tues. I applied for Eng/His (Sec) in Jan/Feb 2021. I was anticipating a July start after going for my medical last month.

However, the notification of a possible commencement date in December caused my heart to sink. I'm still gobsmacked. I can't imagine what it must feel like for you. In essence, come the end of the year, you will have waited for one-and-a-half years for the offer letter and appointment briefing :cry:.

I guess I can take comfort in the fact that I've not been rejected. Still, the wait has become torturous. Do you think there is a possibility that if Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, they may expedite the process for all of us?

Hey Jomini91, thank you for feeling me 😅 appreciate your reply and it comforted me somehow to know that we're not alone in this! It crushed me tbh after waiting for so long and I felt very compelled to reply to their email but at that time I was feeling very frustrated and thought it wasn't such a good idea 😂 also I didn't wanna ruin my chances lol!

I just truly wonder about the system in their processes. It has always been a huge mystery for all of us 😅 and now with more new application windows, will they prioritize the earlier batches or is everything sorted at random? And maybe they're really experiencing difficulties with expediting all our applications, especially with these unforeseen times...

Let's just hope for the best! I sincerely hope that all these waiting will pay off. 🌷

No worries there! I'm glad that my words are somewhat comforting ha ha. There are plenty of people in the same boat as us. I don't know how they select people and choose who to appoint at certain times. I think MOE is simply experiencing a backlog of applications due to Covid-19. I hope they prioritise earlier batches first because if you guys are delayed, so will we.

Exactly! That’s the thing..if there’s a backlog then I don’t understand why they keep opening new application windows. They just ended another one like a few days ago for the May/June batch. 😵

Oh no..😔 i’m so sorry to hear that. I guess like what they said in the previous pages, nothing’s really confirmed until the official offer. Truly hope they can expedite for all of us.😔

That's actually a very good question! Why did they open the May/June window lol? I guess this is MOE's legendary bureaucratic inefficiency at work.

That's really fast, considering some people waited for almost 1 year! Congratulations!

When would you be starting your school stint and PDGE programme?
