In this section you will find information and further resources to help you prepare for, and pass, the numeracy professional skills test for trainee teachers.

As a teacher, it is important that you demonstrate a high level of ability in numeracy in all areas of work in school. This applies to all teachers, not just those with specific curricular responsibilities for numeracy or mathematics and regardless of their chosen phase of education.

You will not be tested on your knowledge of the mathematics National Curriculum or on how to teach it. The specification to which the numeracy tests are developed is included under the associated resources.
