The Literacy Skills Test
As well as the QTS Numeracy Skills Test, prospective teachers also have to pass the literacy skills test. The literacy skills test is a different challenge as the test format is totally different and the time constraints aren't as significant. Therefore the focus really is on key knowledge such as grammar, punctuation and spelling, the sorts of areas that didn't use to get enough focus in the national curriculum until recently. Like anything, the questions in the literacy skills test aren't that difficult if you are well prepared and know what to expect but if you haven't studied English at an academic level for a while then lots of revision will be key. Depending on how well you were taught at GCSE you may find the test quite tricky and therefore opt for some additional support. Fortunately there are people out there who have the experience and knowledge to help you pass your literacy skills test. At QTS Maths Tutor they have a team of expert literacy skills test tutors who know the test and course content inside out and give you tips and tricks to make the test seem easier. Therefore if you are looking for help with your literacy skills test, in terms of literacy skills test resources or tutors then QTS Maths Tutor is the place to go.
