    How Niyo123,
    This link shows you all the SKE courses. https://www.gov.uk/government/public...urse-directory

    Your uni may not provide SKE themselves but will probably have preferred providers, depending on subject. I knew I would need to do SKE and the uni tutor helped me apply after I accepted my conditional offer. Is SKE part of your conditional offer?

    Hi,
    Thanks!
    Yes SKE is part of my conditional offer. The uni provide SKE, but I was wondering if I can do any online SKE course?

    I made enquiries with HCUK for online but in the end my uni recommended online as I'm still working. I'm doing chemistry online but with a couple of weekends at the Uni of Sussex for the practical part. What's your subject?

    Passed both my QTS skills tests today! :-D. The best advice i can give is to also practice the online interactive versions of the practice tests which are exactly like the real thing :-)

    Maths.
    That definitely sounds a good subject for online study. Good luck.

    Hi Folks, I came back to education to do a degree in Web Design and Development BSc at Hull and I am now in my final year. I have enjoyed spending time with my fellow students all of whom were younger than myself, I plan to do a secondary PGCE in computing in 2016 - 2017 I have started the process and have a SEP day on the 23rd and UCAS have just advised me my references are back, however, I have an issue with the GCSE level c or above as I left school in 1975, yes I am 56 years old and we did CSEs back then and I am not sure what the results were certainly around the b or c mark but how they translate to GCSEs so will I need to do GCSE English and Maths or is there an alternative? anyone with information or pointers would be helpful.

    Hi Dave,
    I'm right with you - as a mature student-to-be I did my maths O-level in 1982. From memory, a CSE 1 was equivalent to a C or better at O-level. As you are looking to computing - and if you haven't already - go through the getintoteaching website, as you will qualify for a premium plus advisor. I talked to one and he was really, really helpful.
    I think the Professional Skills tests for numeracy and literacy are intended to check everyone is at the same level on joining ITT, so you may find it's taken care of that way.
    I'm pleased to be getting back into education and have found it refreshing and energising to meet lots of different people at different ages and stages and, apparently, we have the advantages of being more organised and more confident as mature career-changers!!
    Hope all goes well.

    Hi Velma

    I have been assigned an advisor and I have just emailed her to find out where I stand, I have done the mock tests and scored highly 90% - 100% on the Maths tests and 85%+ on the English so I am confident that I can cope but I do wish I had done this earlier!

    Hi Dave,
    That's good to hear and it sounds like you are well on the way. I know what you mean about doing it earlier but actually with all the bursaries and support, it does make it easier to do it now.
    I've got a school direct place for secondary chemistry in Leicestershire and (as I am so out of practice) I've got a 12 week chemistry course to do after Easter, which I'm looking forward to.
    I've found this a good forum to share and ask questions. Cheerio for now, Velma

    Hi
    I'm going to do computing too. Which unis are you after?
    If you're given a conditional offer then some unis offer in house equivalency test whilst others ask proof from equivalency test. Com
    So check this with your university

    Hi all,



    So I have done all the literacy government skills tests and passed them all within a couple of attempts. Spelling was an area I did well on getting no less than 8 right. How much work needs to go into spelling practice? I did well on the practice tests, but the real thing I may not have a clue.

    Go to creative openings (website) and download the spelling list.
