Subject Knowledge Enhancement


There are no specific requirements around subject knowledge. You will certainly teach Mathematics, English, and Science – so you might want to be looking at the materials you need to cover.  


In the case of applications to teach in secondary you will be applying to teach a particular discipline at Key stage 3 and Key Stage 4. If your degree subject does not link closely to your chosen teaching subject, you are still be able to apply for a postgraduate teacher training programme, however, we will be looking at other qualifications, e.g. A level. It maybe you need to undertake a subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) course. We may ask you to take an SKE course as a condition of your offer if we feel you have the right qualities to become a teacher, but need more subject knowledge first. You need a conditional offer from a provider before you can apply for a SKE course. SKE courses are a support not a replacement for gaps in your qualifications. SKE courses Our chosen SKE provider is VIDLEARN. Full details of courses and bursaries are available on their website.
