QTS workshops

I am available to support students preparing for the QTS professional skills test in numeracy.  This compulsory test is broadly based on concepts met at GCSE level, but some students benefit from refreshing and updating their knowledge.  The online test is in two parts- a timed audio mental arithmetic focus, followed by an on screen section focusing on solving written arithmetic problems and interpreting written data. You can choose from attending an intensive workshop, or from one to one tuition.

Intensive workshop

This five hour workshop covers all maths concepts required to pass the QTS numeracy test, along with skills required to respond to questions, including techniques to help simplify questions and work answers out more quickly.

Before the workshop I ask you to complete a short assessment, which is used to focus the groups’ needs.  The afternoon then covers three main areas of the test in depth: mental strategies; fractions, decimals and percentages, and data and statistics.   The final session provides you with a supported opportunity to complete an online practice test.  After the workshop I offer email support up to the test date for any queries you might have- maybe you would like extra revision material for a particular area or help in answering practice questions.

Workshops have a maximum of four students, and are held in a modern tuition centre with internet access in Belper.  The centre is easy to travel to and has ample parking.  There are also good public transport links with buses stopping nearby and Belper train station is under a mile away.

The numeracy workshop costs £90 per person which includes the workshop, assessment and training materials, refreshments and after support.
