About this event

As per Teaching Council requirements, you will need to complete two short online assessments: literacy and numeracy. The literacy test (45 minutes) will involve reading an article and answering some multiple-choice questions about the article. The numeracy test (45 minutes) will involve basic mathematical concepts, such as addition, subtraction, finding equivalent fractions, multiplying decimals, understanding place value, and converting common fractions, decimals and percentages. Please click here for some useful tips and advice about the Numeracy test.

You will receive a confirmation email that contains the Zoom details of your test at the latest the day after the bookings have closed.

The assessments will be done via ZOOM and will be supervised. You will need to use a laptop/computer that has a camera. If you do not have access to a camera, you can book an on-campus assessment that will be held once per month. Online ZOOM assessment sessions will be run at least twice a week.
