How do I prepare for a PGCE interview ?

You need to tailor your preparation and relate your experiences to the training course you are applying too. You also need to ensure that you have the correct qualifications in terms of GCSE’s or GCSE equivalents. Additionally you need to make sure that you prepare for the maths and English tests that will be given at interview.

What support do you provide for the GCSE Equivalency Tests? 

We have specialist tutors who can help with the GCSE Equivalency Tests and we also provide revision materials for the GCSE maths equivalency test. The following links will enable you to find revision materials as well as booking information for the UK’s leading test provider.

I am a Nurse, fireman, other professional – Can I take a GCSE Equivalency test?

Yes, more and more professional courses and uniformed services are accepting GCSE equivalency test results in place of a GCSE grade C or level 4. In fact many course providers are favouring the equivalency test qualification over other GCSE equivalents such as the functional skills.

What are the teacher training interview questions I should prepare for?

Many of the teacher training interview questions test for basic competencies but also the desire of an individual to get into teaching. Is it the long holidays and job security that are the main attraction or is it your passion for teaching? Initial teacher training course providers and SCITT’s wants to see that you are passionate about teaching and that you will put in the work and overcome the challenges needed to complete your course and go onto be a successful teacher.

Will I have to pass a maths test at my PGCE interview?

The short answer is yes, you will need to prepare for your interview and the high possibility of a maths test being presented. The maths test will look to test your fundamental skills such as knowledge of fractions, percentages, decimals and ability to interpret data. You will need to demonstrate a certain level of mental arithmetic ability as well. These are all key skills you will need for your teaching career and to successfully complete professional tasks, even if you are a drama or PE teacher, you will still need to demonstrate these key competencies in maths.

Do you help with numerical reasoning tests? 

Yes we have a dedicated service for numerical reasoning tests. The QTS Maths Tutor platform is often used for preparation for numerical reasoning tests as our practice tests help you with the basic data interpretation skills as well as understanding of key topics such as percentages and ratio, that are needed for all numerical reasoning tests.

Can you help people on the Teach First Graduate Training program?

How to Pass your GCSE Equivalency Test

Remember you only need to take a GCSE equivalency test if you don’t have a GCSE maths, English and science to grade C or level 4. Some course accept GCSE equivalents such as functional skills, but not teacher training course providers or SCITTs.

Prepare for and pass your GCSE Equivalency tests using the QTS service. Firstly, you need to ensure you access the GCSE equivalency past papers and practice tests. These will give you good insight into what comes up in each test. If you are preparing for a GCSE English equivalency test then our sister site, QTS Literacy Tutor can help and you can also get some English practice papers here. If you are preparing for a GCSE maths equivalency test then we can help. To help with the science GCSE equivalency test we recommend the MME service.
