I got onto a diploma (to teach in FE) back in January, went overseas, and now I am hoping to get onto a PGCE course instead of doing the diploma (I have been in contact with the uni I want to do a PGCE at since January) I have an interview next week for it. I never had to complete a numeracy and literacy test for getting onto the diploma, although something simular, I'm wondering with so little time until the PGCE course starts, will these QTS tests be compulsory to start my training all being well I get onto the course I am going for?

I'm guessing the institution(s) you are applying to for the PGCE will give you an answer to this when/if you are offered a place.
However, I'd say it wouldn't hurt. You should be able to book in for the literacy and numeracy tests before a PGCE starts this year, especially if you are prepared to travel a little for them.
As far as I know, though, it is compulsory now for all PGCE entrants to have passed them before starting the course. I'm sure someone will soon be along to correct me if I am wrong.

I have just found out from the university that for this particular course it is not compulsory. Thank you!

The tests for FE teacher training course entry are not required by many course providers. Good I'm happy with that
