Subject Knowledge Enhancement programmes have been created for those secondary trainees who need to refresh or extend their subject knowledge. Additional information regarding the SKE programmes can be found on the Government website.
As an ITT provider, we will identify if you need to complete an SKE course as part of the selection process. If we feel you need to enhance your knowledge, we may offer you a teacher training place on the condition that you undertake an SKE course. This could be because your degree wasn’t in your chosen subject, but it was closely related, or you have an A level in the subject. Or it may be that you have relevant professional experience, and an SKE course will show you how to apply that to the curriculum and your teaching.
SKE programmes are available all over England and can be completed by studying face to face, online or a blend of the two. In the past we have worked very successfully with Eureka and TES but there are a number of providers. Courses run from 8 to 28 weeks and the length of the course required will vary dependent on individual applicants existing subject knowledge.
