Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) Courses

We are providing Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses in Chemistry and Mathematics for individuals who have obtained a place on an ITT course but need to improve their subject knowledge before starting their training. It is a requirement that you are in receipt of a conditional training place offer subject to successful completion of such a course. The conditional training place (on an initial teacher training route) provides funding for the course and an additional bursary for personal expenses.



16 week course - Monday 13th April to Friday 31st July 2015


8 week course - Monday 8th June to Friday 31st July 2015

This eight week, full time course will focus on some aspects of Key Stage 4 of the National Curriculum, some core components of AS/A2, including the three applications modules:

The course will encourage collaborative work and there will be some self-study time, working independently or in small groups on coursework set by the course tutors.
