Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students

Before you complete your teaching degree, you’ll need to sit the Australian Government’s Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students (LANTITE). 

It’s important you do well in this test if you want to launch your teaching career in Qld, NSW, ACT or Vic. The LANTITE is made up of two parts, each made up of multiple choice and written answers. They can be taken together or separately.
