All students starting an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) will be required to pass the Professional Skills tests in literacy and numeracy before the start of the programme.
You should submit an application as early as possible via the UCAS (applications open early October) and then make arrangements to take the skills tests. We strongly advise that you take the tests as soon as you are able. If offered an interview, having already passed the tests will greatly improve your chances of being offered a place.
