Interview SPP perguruan Pegawai Perkhidmatan Pendidikan DG41 2017 for TESL graduates

Assalamualaikum and good day to you! 🙂

I believe that you might be nervous or a little "panic" while reading this post in preparation for the Pegawai Perkhidmatan Pendidikan DG41 (PPP DG41)'s interview. I will be sharing with you the interview experience of mine for Teaching as a Second Language (TESL) major field of study.

🍀🍀🍀Kindly be informed that this post is long and please bear with me guys in reading my knowledge sharing 😄 I am informing you that my sharing will be in mixed topic that will come in jumbled points 🙂 I will be updating this post from time to time too, whichever I think is appropriate and needed to be edited ✌thank you

It is 12.20 p.m. , Tuesday, September 12, 2017. I am writing this blog fresh to put as much input as I could remember for the interview. I hope this could be a little help to you in becoming a dedicated English teacher in the government schools. Good luck! 🍀🍀🍀

Venue of interview: SPP building, Kompleks Jabatan Perdana Menteri (JPM), Putrajaya. (Free public parking is available along Laman Perdana that is situated next to JPM and it is nearer to the gate we interviewees should head in while RM1/hr parking is situated in front of the main gate of JPM. It is advised that you arrive before 8 a.m. to avoid traffic congestions)

Interview time: 9.30 a.m. (the security officer will not let the 10.30 a.m. and above interviewees' sessions to get in to avoid crowds)

Interview Date: 12/09/2017 ( I received an SMS on Saturday 11: 38 p.m. from SPP stated: "RM0.00 SPP: Sukacita dimaklumkan tuan/puan adalah dimohon untuk membuat semakan panggilan temu duga dengan segera di laman web").

Before Interview

- Check the SPP's website for your interview invitation.
- Print out the list of document and prepare the original and endorsed copies of your certificates.
- If you had involved in numerous co-curricular activities throughout your secondary and tertiary studies, kindly only chose three to four certificates to be photocopied. I photocopied almost all my 30+ certificates and believe me, the admin said to only take out the " Sijil Penghargaan" , and other most significant certifications that you have. Seems like I wasted some pennies and time there in photocopying and arranging the certs' in order.
- Kindly clip temporarily (not staple) all your copied and endorsed certs together because the "admin" will later take only the relevant documents from you.

Interview Day

Dr Mas*** & Puan K***** (not real name)

I was highly touched by the one-hour-and-a-half interview session. I love the experience and knowledge sharings of the interviewers during and after the interview and I love hearing ideas and answers  from the other candidates as well because personally I am regarding this interview as a "knowledge sharing" session. There were eight interviewees from different universities. In my readings from the other blogs, the maximum interviewees were five candidates. I was the only one who was wearing baju kurung without a blazer and nametag due to unforeseen circumstances (maybe my marks will not be that good in term of personality/attire).

Sharings from the interviewers and topics asked/ discussed.

Code switching between English and Malay during the interview; if you were asked in Malay, kindly answer in Malay and vice versa.

If you were to become a teacher, please:
- focus on polishing each and every student to become an established person in their own unique personalities, not educationg in mass.
- be a teacher who is always in progress; who makes a difference. Holidays and working are different: teachers should focus more on students. Sacrifices and passion to teach will mold students' personalities and it will make a difference.
- How do we know that our Lesson Outcomes (LOs ) are achieved? One of the tips is to ask the low proficiency learners before we end of class.
- What is PPP DG41
- Probation teacher :  issues (stealing, drug abuse & sexual harassment) , how long in probation, what to do in probation : focus on students, motivation, passionate, good attitude, humble, learn from the senior teachers
- ICT usage among Z generation : what are the advantages and disadvantages, how do we make use of the ICT to utilise it in lessons.
- Use imagination to teach, creativity. Imagination is free.

In overall, no specific facts (e.g.: list all the national education blueprints) or specific general knowledge were asked. At times we laughed in the interview session too when the interviewer(s) made funny statements. I startled a lot because I couldn't contain my nervousness. My bad😐
