If you are starting ITT in 2019 you must pass the professional skills tests in numeracy and literacy before you begin your teacher training. A new process for assessing numeracy and literacy will be introduced for ITT starting in 2020, and information on this will be soon be made available.
Applicants for initial teacher training (ITT) courses are required to have passed the professional skills tests in Literacy and Numeracy before the start of the course. If you are offered a place following an interview, you will have to pass both skills tests as one of your conditions of acceptance before the course starts.
We also offer support with the taking and passing of the professional skills tests. To find out more about the kind of support we offer, please follow this link to our webpage.
