Achieving QTS Series
English | Primary English | Trainees' Literacy Skills
This popular, widely recommended, text supports trainees on primary initial teacher training courses where a secure knowledge and understanding of English is required for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). A rigorous and focused test enables trainees to identify their strengths and weaknesses in English. This test can be revisited at key stages in their course as a tool to monitor and evaluate progress. The fourth edition has been updated in line with the new National Curriculum, includes more information on expanding and developing a knowledge of English and is linked to the 2012 Teachers’ Standards.
Extremely useful resource for revising subject knowledge in English.
This slim volume provides a useful guide for student-teachers, not only to test their own technical subject knowledge, but also help them reflect on their broader understanding of English language and literacy.
This breaks subject knowledge down into different levels and domains and could be a useful tool for students wishing to identify where they might benefit from further exploration, understanding or support if used alongside other modes of subject knowledge development.
a very useful book for students to prepare for the Skills Test and to self-audit and improve their English subject knowledge
