Certain teaching programmes require students to complete Skills Tests as a condition of their offer to study with us.
If you are required to complete Skills Tests this will be noted as a condition of offer on your UCAS Track and also as part of your Programme Essentials.
The professional skills tests (skills tests) for prospective teachers assess the core skills that teachers need to fulfil their professional role in schools, rather than the subject knowledge needed for teaching. This is to ensure all teachers are competent in numeracy and literacy, regardless of their specialism.
More details on the Skills Test can be found on the Department for Education website.
