QTS skills tests

You are required to pass the QTS skills tests before you start your course. Once you have submitted your application you will be eligible to book the skills tests via the Department of Education website. The pre-entry test appointments and the registration and booking system are available now. We strongly encourage you to pass these tests prior to interview, applicants with passed QTS skills tests at interview will be noted.

Practice tests are available on the Teaching Agency website.

You will be required to have passed the DfE's skills tests in numeracy and literacy as one of the conditions of your offer if you have not passed them prior to interview.

Please register and book the skills tests after you have submitted an application.

The tests are managed externally and all questions should be directed to the Skills Test Team at the Teaching Agency
