Subject Knowledge enhancement (SKE’s)

A condition of your offer made at interview may be a subject knowledge enhancement course. We currently use TES institute and our courses are all online distance learning. The course length is determined by the SCITT director.

TES Institute is the largest provider of Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) in England, helping thousands of trainee and in-service teachers improve their knowledge. The 100% online SKE courses are available in Biology, Chemistry, Computing, French, Geography, German, Maths, Physics and Spanish. Course lengths range from 8-32 weeks, depending on the subject.

An SKE course can be fully funded by the NCTL if you have accepted a conditional offer of a place on a postgraduate or School Direct initial teacher training (ITT) programme prior to applying for an SKE course. Additional bursary is also available if you have been awarded an undergraduate degree of at least a 2:2 classification (or equivalent)*.  Find out more about SKE here
