When you’re working on the Spelling section of the Teacher’s Skills Test, you have to listen to words and spell them. Here are a few top tips to help you pass this section with flying colours:

  • Don’t leap at the word – listen to it carefully and listen more than once if you need to.

  • Sound the word out in your head – probably best not to do it out loud in the test centre!

  • Look for familiar parts of the word that you can spell and get them down first.

  • Remember that words are often made up of root words with prefixes and suffixes added. This can really help with tricky longer words.

  • If there are any words you know you struggle with, take the time and learn them by heart.
