New Links: City and Guilds Format End Tests

Maybe they've been there for ages, but I've only just discovered the links for City and Guild style end tests (linked on this page). At this time of the year especially, it is useful to be able to give people an idea of what the tests will actually look like when they are done on computers. We use City and Guilds, and it has often not been easy to show this to learners, as most of the samples are in a different format. The City and Guilds format can be confusing when first encountered - some dyslexic learners get confused with the way documents can be shown in a pop-up window, and some older monitors do not handle this very well. Practice helps.
