Ask Tes Institute: what are the benefits of SKE courses

Teacher trainees share their top tips for Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses.

Tes Institute Team

A lady named Lucy being interviewed about her SKE course.

Have you been asked to do a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course by your teacher training provider before starting your Initial Teacher Training (ITT)? Are you wondering what options are available to you and how other trainees have found certain programmes? 

In this video, we asked four post-SKE learners who are now on their ITT pathway to share their experience. They discuss key elements of the course such as how they found the 100% online delivery, the support they received from their pathway tutor and tips on managing the recommended 25 hours a week study time.

If you have any questions regarding our SKE courses, then please do email the team at and we’ll be in touch shortly.
