Skills Tests – Practice, Practice, Practice

Worried about taking the Skills Tests?

Do you feel that you need extra help and advice before taking the Numeracy or Literacy Skills Tests?

Remember whilst you can do the on-line practice tests as many times as you like, you only have three attempts at passing each of the actual tests and will have to wait for 2-years before you can retake them, if you fail on the third attempt!

Several of our current and former trainees have used on-line help/practice websites and the one most recommend for helping them pass their Numeracy test is: Numeracy Ready although there are other websites, publications and on-line resources which may help if you feel that you need additional support.

We’re planning to deliver some training sessions early in the Spring Term and will let applicants who have been offered places know the dates of these. We also get a 20% discount for ‘Numeracy Ready’ so can pass that on to applicants who have accepted a place with us.

So make sure you’re ready to take the test BEFORE you book in at a test centre.
