Samuel "After failing my first attempt at the literacy skills test I found out that the university offers these support sessions. It was a great way for me fill in the gaps in my knowledge and practice what I had forgotten. The guidance is really good for all 4 areas of the test, there are plenty hand-outs to practice from and the support it great! I would strongly recommend them! These sessions definitely helped me to pass and I wouldn't have been able to do it with out them - thank you" (May 2017) 

Jenisha "I wanted to let you all know that I really recommend the Professional Skills Test Literacy Support sessions that the literacy tutor runs.  I passed my literacy test for teacher training for the first time today and the guidance, course notes and support I received at the sessions was so helpful.  I would definitely advise others taking the test to attend these sessions at the University of Wolverhampton. The knowledge I gained will also be useful to me in teacher training to refer to." (March 2017)  

Hannah and Hayley, who both have an offer to study PGCE Secondary and recently passed their Literacy test say "Preparation is key and the support sessions were very insightful and helpful to succeeding. The sessions boosted our confidence and we would 100% reccomend you to attend!" (February 2017)

Annie "Last year I failed my Literacy test which led me to find out about these sessions. I am so grateful for the service you are providing! I attended six Literacy sessions in total and it has helped me so much. I re-sat my my test on Thursday and passed! It's only thanks to the tutor and the excellent revision aids that are provided. I have really found this useful!" (January 2017)
