QTS Tests In Wales??

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by meggriffin, Jul 5, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    Are the QTS tests taken in Wales?
    I recently read a blog on here (and I can't remember which one) that said that in Wales the QTS tests are not taken. Apparently the standards are incorporated within the teaching at uni.
    Is this true?
     
  2. The tests only apply in England. At present there are three, Numeracy, Literacy and ICT. The current proposals from the government are to drop the ICT test and limit retakes on the other two to three times only. In addition they must be passed before the start of a PGCE. If this is accepted then they are likely to introduce the new regime from 2012.
