literacy and numeracy test for band 6 job

  1. I've finally taken the plunge and applied for a job in a different Trust as a band 6. Had an email yesterday stating that I will need to take a literacy and numeracy test next week and if successful then the actual interview is the following week.

    Has anyone taken one of these tests, and what is involved?

    Thanks in advance for any help and advice offered.

    Have heard and seen them, they have usually only been used for newly qualified staff, never heard of band 6 having to do them. just google them and see from there.

    I'd never heard of it either, my Trust don't even use them for newly qualified staff, never mind for band 6. Still it will be a chance to go down there and see what the unit is like.
