National implementation of Literacy and Numeracy test

Please be advised that from 1 July 2016, it is the national policy that all initial teacher education students will be expected to sit and pass the national Literacy and Numeracy Test prior to completing their course. The test will be used as the means to demonstrate that students completing initial teacher education courses are in the top 30 per cent of the Australian adult population for personal literacy and numeracy.
