All trainee teachers in England and Wales have to sit numeracy and literacy skills tests in order to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which permits them to continue or start teaching. How to Pass the QTS Numeracy and Literary Skills Tests includes both literacy and numeracy revision and mock tests.
The numeracy section starts at a low level and includes a diagnostic test, a maths review, mental and general arithmetic practice, and revision of statistics. It gives the reader a good grounding in the skills needed to pass the test, particularly if maths has always been a weak subject or hasn't been revised in years. The literacy section includes practice material on spelling, punctuation, grammar and comprehension. It highlights the areas where people commonly have problems, and provides easy to follow explanations and practice questions and answers.
Online supporting resources for this book include MP3 audio files to test mental arithmetics and sample numeracy tests.
