QTS skills test

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by BLRPH05, Jun 12, 2011.

  1. I recommend you have a practice and get a feel for the sort of questions you are going to be asked. I didn't find it a hard as GCSE!

    Good Luck :)

    Don't worry about GCSE maths, most of it is from KS2
  3. I have been told I need to brush up on maths- can anyone recommend which book to buy
  4. In order to pass any of the QTS skills the minimum you need to have is
    1) "average" intelligence/ability/knowledge
    2) motivation and commitment
    3) an ability to apply yourself to learning anything which you didn't already know
    All things which any teacher should have in abundance. That, in my opinion, is the only good thing to come out of the tests. Not the actual testing of ICT/numeracy/literacy skills - but just the testing of the ability to apply yourself to something which you may find difficult.

    I can recommend Derek Haylock's "Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers". It'll help you increase your personal subject knowledge as well as give you tips on how to teach maths.
