Is it possible? Yes.
Is it probable? No.

Perhaps you have failed to check that the Art School is under SIT - a public university.

Would MOE then not recognise one of its own universities?

They recognize means you are eligible to apply, but that does not mean they will give you. They already recognize by offering you a job with MOE together with a stint at the art school, but that doesn't mean they must offer PGDE to you.

PGDE is a huge investment on their end. Competition is stiff as everyone is trying to get into the program, SIT Art school will definitely be eligible but chances of getting is very slim.

Is it possible? Yes.
Is it probable? No.

If it doesn't work out, I'm prolly looking forward to another MNC as a designer/senior designer and do part time studies.

If you are interested in teaching, you don't have to be a MOE teacher.
And don't read too much into your own age, it does not matter as long as you have the right qualities the employer is looking for.

You can consider degrees from the new universities, SUTD and SIT.
Or if you want to take it slow, you can consider specialist diplomas from polytechnics,
- .getcet.sg

Aside from MOE teacher, you can become an Adult Educator.
The government is professionalising adult educators.
- ://.ial.edu.sg/index.aspx?id=726

There are a range of programmes to train you to become a qualified adult educator,
Institute for Adult Learning - certificates, diplomas, post-graduate programmes,
- ://.ial.edu.sg/index.aspx?id=11
Republic Polytechnic - Specialist Diploma in Applied Learning and Teaching
- ://.rp.edu.sg/ace_specialist_diploma.aspx

These can strengthen your credentials to teach in a tertiary institution, ITE, Polytechnic and University.

Follow your heart but think before you act. Live in the present and enjoy the moment, but consider your past and plan for the future. Do all these and you will succeed. All the best.
