University Of Cumbria QTS Support Sessions

All teacher training applicants are required to pass the Professional Skills Tests to ensure competency in numeracy and literacy before starting a QTS course. Find out how to prepare and take the tests.

Practice makes perfect!

There are online practice materials available to help you prepare for the tests. Use the Department for Education web pages to support you in your preparations.

The tests are managed by Learn Direct. You have three attempts to pass the test-your first attempt is free, but each attempt after this has a fee. The test centres are located nationwide, but they get very busy. We advise you to start preparing as soon as you have applied to your teacher training course.

Free Skills Test Support Workshops

You can also come along to our free Skills Test Support Workshops listed below and give yourself the chance to get ahead with your preparations. Book on a session by clicking on the date of your choice.

If you have any questions about the support workshops you can email skillstests@cumbria.ac.uk or tweet us @uocskillstests
