Postgraduate Diploma of Education (PGDE)

Postby pennylim1104 » Sun, 28 Dec 2008 8:11 pm

Has anybody applied the PGDE programme at MOE?
I've applied it but recently I received a letter frm MOE SG, the letter stated that I have to take and meet the Pre-selection test(PST) first before apply online for a teaching position...I'm so blur now...when is the next PST registration..and anybody knows what is the type of PST?
(I'm very appreciate it if you can provide useful information for me...tq)

Since you can't even find the website for a well know airline, I would be seriously worried about your capabilities as a teacher! :-k :roll:

Plavt....I'm so sorry for what happen at the cabin crew forum...
I know how to find that website (just google it)and I agree it is a WELL-KNOWN AIRLINES....but I dont know why I asked that question...(maybe just try to get reply)
Well...I dont care what people said, I'm believing in myself...maybe lack of talents or capabilities (as you said)...but I will put more effort to turn my dream into reality...

p/s: lastly, I am very dissapointed because I cant get useful infomation from here...but just lots of critizes...Since when all the people at the earth become like this...unfriendly......

I know some friends who have NIE decision makers as friends. He told me that as long as the teacher candidate sounds sincere about teaching, and display some passion about passing on knowledge, they will usually hire the teacher. Don't worry. My advice: be yourself and show some passion about teaching, and you should be able to get thru the test. :)

Don't worry about the critics. Everyone is entitled to his/her own opinions. And in the end of the day, many things of what they say remain opinions. ;)

All the best in your teaching career.

Using bad English & worse grammar is not an opinion but a statement of fact. :-|

Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) Programme at NIE

Postby winnyp » Thu, 07 May 2009 8:15 am

Hi all,

I have submitted my application for Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) Programme at NIE that is sponsored by MOE. Does anybody know how competitive it is to be admitted to the program?

Thanks,

winnyp

I don't think it's very competitive as not many knew about it.

Can a foreigner apply for the PGDE ? I did look through the website but it did not state whether a foreigner can apply for it.
Always have a smile on that face!
