    Hiya:hi:

    So I've popped your lovely thread into this sub-forum so that you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    The skills test is for QTS accreditation. So you need to pass it for any job asking for QTS. As far as I'm aware most TA jobs do not require QTS. That doesn't mean it won't be helpful.

    Hope this helps.
