I'm applying for the 2021-2022 cycle for the PGCE Primary course. I heard that the skills tests, which needs to be completed prior to the course have been scrapped. Is this true?

Did you ring up the universities you want to apply to, in order to find out?

The Department of Education skills tests in Maths and English were scrapped (the 2019/2020 cohort were the last to do them). However, now it is up to the teacher training provider to assess a candidate’s skills in Maths and English during the application/interview process.

Dear sunshine97

Yes, you no longer need to have passed the QTS professional skills tests in literacy and numeracy prior to starting your course. However, the teacher training course provider s must ensure that your literacy and numeracy skills meet a required standard and so some may test that in interview. Others will do so over the period of training.

There is free advise, guidance and support for a 2021-22 teacher training course application from fully qualified and experienced teachers, who are also expert in making successful applications for courses. Register here for our help!

All the best
