Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Our online subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses are ideal if you are applying for teacher training in Biology, Chemistry, Computing, English, French, Geography, Maths, Physics or Spanish and either your degree is not subject-specific or you lack confidence in your subject.

Our SKE courses prepare you for initial teacher training by helping you to gain the depth of subject knowledge and skills you need to be able to teach your chosen subject.

We are awaiting confirmation from the DfE to see what funding is available for SKEs for those starting courses in Sept 2021. If SKEs are going to be available, we expect this to be from January 2021.

Individuals who cannot access funding, or if funding is not available for their subject, can always purchase an SKE course from their own pocket.

SKE courses typically range in length from 8 - 28 weeks, but again, this is subject to confirmation from the DfE shortly.
