The Department for Education has announced that from 14 February 2018, there will be changes to the professional skills tests, and all of these benefit you!
- You’ll be able to take unlimited resits, and will no longer be locked out for two years if you don’t pass. Candidates who were locked out have had the lock removed.
- You can attempt both the numeracy and literacy tests three times, free of charge. A charge will only be applied from the fourth test attempt for each subject.
- If you took one – or both – of the above tests for a second or third time between 24 October 2017 and 14 February 2018, you’ll be entitled to a full refund.
Refunds will be issued automatically by 31 March 2018. If you haven’t received a refund by then, call learndirect on 0300 303 9613 and they can look in to this.
