Skills test centres will will be closed from 21 March until at least 13 April 2020 in line with the government position.

Candidates who have tests booked in this period, will be contacted to identify those due to start teacher training in the 2019/20 admissions cycle. Where they have done, the DfE will liaise with their teacher training provider asking them to assure their fundamental skills using the same approach that they will be using for courses that start on or after 1 April 2020.  PSI, who provide the skills tests, will also automatically reschedule the bookings of candidates who had skill test centres booked in this period. Legacy candidates who began their teacher training prior to 1 July 2013 will still have until 13 June to sit their tests once the test centres reopen.

If members have any questions please contact skills.test@education.gov.uk.
