Have you applied or are thinking about applying for one of our teacher training courses? If you are yet to take the Professional Skills Tests and would like to be guided through the common mistakes that people make, make sure to come and benefit from our Professional Skills Tests Day this April!
Before starting a teacher training course that leads to gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS), trainee teachers are expected to pass Professional Skills Tests in numeracy and literacy. You can find out more about the tests on the Department for Education (DfE) website.
On Saturday 6 April 2019, the School of Education is providing a day full of un-missable workshops and support to answer all of your professional skills test questions, develop your skills and build your confidence.
From 9.15am – 2pm at our Falmer campus, you can choose to take part in up to five of six 40 minute sessions: mental maths, interpreting and extracting data, problem solving, punctuation, spelling and grammar and reading comprehension.
James Lewington currently studies Primary Mathematics Education BA (Hons) with QTS here at Brighton and found the preparation day extremely beneficial. He is running a session at this year’s event, “I will be running the Reading and Interpreting session which is a key part of the written section. The session will look at some key content and practice how this is tested to prepare you for the test as much as possible. All three maths sessions will be interactive and practical to ensure that everyone gets the most out of it.”
You can find out more about James’ experience, advice and what to expect from the Professional Skills Tests on his Unibuddy blog.
There’s still time to book a place on this year’s preparation day- don’t miss out!
