The development of subject knowledge is a fundamental part of your overall development as a teacher. In this programme, a number of training days are devoted to the development of curriculum subject knowledge. Trainees should also undertake private study related to subject knowledge.
You will be asked to complete a Subject Knowledge audit before the programme begins and at three more points during the course so that we can track your progress and help you to close any gaps in your subject knowledge.
You will be given considerable support in developing your subject knowledge throughout the course. Subject knowledge training is provided by Lead Subject Tutors through taught sessions and your Curriculum Mentor in school will work with you on a personalised training plan to ensure that your subject knowledge continues to develop throughout the course.
If you feel your subject knowledge needs enhancing prior to commencing your training, please view our Subject Knowledge Enhancement page for further information.
Researchers In Schools
In addition to our standard training programme, the Hampshire SCITT Partnership is also a training provider for the Researchers in Schools programme. Researchers in Schools is a national programme that offers a tailored route into teaching exclusively for those who have completed a doctorate. It is designed to ensure that trainees are well equipped to deploy their knowledge and skills for the benefit of pupils in non-selective state schools through its three aims: to increase and disseminate subject expertise, to promote education research and to champion university access. All applications for RIS training places are made via their website. Click here for more information.
