The pprofessional skills test results database has been updated to reflect the change in outcome for those candidates who were incorrectly notified that they had failed their skills test. Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers have access to this database.

Any candidate affected in this way was instructed to contact the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) if they wanted to discuss their options.

The STA have also written to all providers of ITT courses to inform them of the issue.
