Hi! Anyone here currently in the NIE pgde training programme? I'll be entering in Nov, just wondering if there are physical lessons everyday in campus? Thinking of getting accommodation near sch if that's the case :/

Yes there are lessons almost everyday when the covid restrictions were more relaxed. Most were physical for mine in Sem 1. Lessons can start at 830 am till as late as 530 - 630 or 730pm for GESL (group project meeting, but meeting timing may be changed)

Hi! I’m also currently undergoing PGDE untrained teaching stint. Am waiting for the school to update if I’m cleared for NIE! I started in July 2021 and hope to make it for this Dec 2021 intake but I have heard alot of people saying the untrained stint will take a year? So if we end in Jul 2022… the next intake in Dec 2022 does that mean we are unemployed for the period in between lol.

You can check with your school if you are cleared, but the confirmation for NIE will come from the MOE HR. Mine was mid-late Oct when I received it. And yea you wont be unemployed, probably signing another UT contract with HR, then another MOE bond contract in Dec.

Anyone also received email on starting NIE this Nov ? Are yall staying on campus ? I want to opt for single room but there isnt any room preference option in the hall application form 😭
Might not be able to choose now. I think there was a shortage of rooms due to covid in Aug semester

Hi. I took the English one just a few Weeks ago. For mine, there was an example attached in the email I think? If not u can find the example online. For mine it took about half a day. There were 2 essays and oral which consist of reading, monologue and dialogue.

Thanks for sharing your experience.
They didn’t attach any file with the email 😢 and the samples I found online are all English one. I Hope Chinese and English EPT are similar, as I use the English one to prepare my Chinese EPT now .🤣🤣

Not sure if it's a glitch, but the status for my other job applications is all normal.

Hi,

Appreciate if anyone who applied in the latest application window (Aug/Sep) can update if you receive any post-interview news!

TIA!
Hello appletart7!

Fellow Aug/Sep 2021 batch here! No news or updates since interview on 01 Oct 2021.

From what I have read in the previous pages, it usually takes a while for MOE RU to respond.

Let's hope for the best! 💪🏽

Hi! I am currently in the same timeline as you! Other than the email from mid Aug that told us about the 15th November possible offer, I got another email asking for some documents late September!

Can I check if you were required to do anything else? Like medical check up or personality test?

Hey! I called up for a medical checkup in September, but no updates since. Has it been radio silence for you too since September?

Yep it has been radio silence! I was offered EL/SS (sec) last checked portal as shortlisted too. However, I wasn't called for the medical check up :( Seems like you have a higher chance man! Good luck! Will update if there is any outcome on my side

Just wanna ask if anyone got accepted or had friends that were accepted (diploma / degree path doesn't matter) with a GPA of 2.8 haha.

I've always wanted to teach but got complacent in poly . I tried to apply etc a year back with my diploma for pe route . I passed the physical proficiency tests ( cartwheel etc) but didn't get past the interview as they told me to apply again when I was closer to finishing my ns duties.

(Thank you for your interest in teaching, and the time you had taken to be at the interview. After careful consideration of your application in totality and in competition with the other applicants, we would like to inform you that your application is unsuccessful.



If you are still keen on a teaching position, we welcome you to reapply when you are in your final year of National Service.)

Hello all! My application was back in Jun/Aug 2020 :ROFLMAO: yes took mine a yearrrrr. I had so many emails about delays due to covid and heightened alerts and everything else. So guys, be prepared for the wait. Perhaps yours will come much earlier than mine and I hope it does cos the wait was NOT fun and painful lol..but it's worth it. Have patience and back-up plans as you wait!
