Birmingham City University Numeracy Skills Test Booster Sessions

If you're applying for a place on an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course, but haven’t passed the government’s Skills Tests in Numeracy or Literacy yet it can be very daunting, especially if it’s been some years since you formally practised your skills in these areas. The government recently changed the rules on Skills Tests meaning your first three attempts at the tests are free (you start paying once you take one for the fourth time) and you're also allowed as many attempts as you like – but you still need to pass the tests before you can start your ITT course. So we've decided to give you some support by holding Skills Tests Booster Sessions. Our Booster sessions are designed to support you in your revision, not teach you the entirety of the tests. When you come to a booster session you will need to have practised your tests to know what your areas of weakness are as those areas are the ones we'll support you with.

So we would highly recommend that: If you've not already booked your tests, get them booked. The slots can fill up fast, particularly during the summer leading up to course start dates; you don't want to be left panicking at the last minute or having to travel long distances to a test centre because all the slots in your local area are full. Why not book them for soon after your Booster Session? You practice, practice, practice. Every year we hear that it's not the content of the tests that causes problems, it's the format of the tests. The government offers lots of tips and advice, including practice tests: http://sta.education.gov.uk/ Numbers for each Booster Session are limited so book early to secure the date that works for you. For this reason, if you can find you can no longer attend, please cancel your place so someone else can use it; our sessions are free so can be in high demand.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
