Dear Colleagues

In a letter to providers dated 12th September 2019, the DfE confirmed that applicants to teacher training programmes would no longer need to pass the skills tests as a requirement of entry. NASBTT and UCET welcomed this announcement, having long argued that the existing testing arrangements were no longer fit for purpose.
