Applicants for initial teacher training (ITT) courses which begin in 2018/19 and beyond are required to have passed the QTS skills tests in both numeracy and literacy before the start of their course. This applies to those intending to follow an employment based route into teaching, such as School Direct, as well as those intending to take the PGCE route or an assessment only route.
A refresher session is also available for the Professional Skills Test in Numeracy on Thursday 19th July at 9.30 pm - 12.30 pm, and must be booked separately.
This course will cover the key knowledge required to pass the literacy test including:
- commonly misspelt words
- the rules of grammar
- a guide to accurate paragraphing
- the format of the QTS comprehension test
- a guide to ensuring and checking for correct answers.
The focus throughout will be on the types of questions asked in the skills tests and common errors to avoid.
