Recommendation made to all prospective PGCE applicants who are now required to have passed the skills tests prior to enrolment. This text is succinct with well explained worked examples enabling users to gain confidence as well as competence prior to booking a test.
This is a very clear and helpful guide to those about to sit the Literacy Skills test. Now that our students have to have passed this before they join us it is a text we recommend at interview. It offers sound advice and reassurance.
This is a perfectly good book, but we have already adopted Medwell et al's 'Passing QTS' books, and so an additional adoption cannot be warranted.
I will recommend this title as it is up to date and covers the literacy skills tests in comprehensive detail.
However - you must be aware that there are some texts which cover both in one book and a trainee may but that set up since it would be more cost effective.
useful for pre course applications
An extremely useful text to recommend to applicants, who need more than ever a good guide to the test and clear explanations of aspects of subject knowledge which are tested.
This text is very useful to those interested in teaching and preparing for the Literacy Skills Test.
The text provides good guidance and helpful 'hints'.
This book is fantastic and has been purchased by many of our students who have subsequently passed the skill test.
