Changes to QTS tests

| 0 comments

You might have seen in the media recently that the one of the parts of the teacher training application has changed: the QTS skills tests in English and mathematics. 

The government statement says:

“To support this, the government today announced that it is introducing a new approach to assessing the numeracy and literacy of prospective teachers, which will replace the existing skills tests.

The current skills tests will be replaced with a new system where trainees will be assured against a set of fundamental maths and English skills by the end of their initial teacher training.” (DfE, 2019, lines 4 – 9).
