The measures announced  will be effective from 15 February, but are relevant to all applicants who applied on or after 24 October 2017 – with refunds offered automatically.

In full changes are:

  • The removal of a lock-out period that previously prevented aspiring teachers from re-taking tests for two years;
  • No limit on the number of tests, and the first three tests are free of charge to all candidates; and
  • Refunds for anyone who has already paid for tests in this year’s recruitment cycle – on or since 24 October 2017.
