A guide to Subject Knowledge Enhancement for teacher training providers

A handy guide to SKE for teacher training providers

For many trainee teachers, Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses provide a vital headstart before their teacher training, combining both pedagogy and of course subject knowledge.

So whether you don't know anything about SKE or you're struggling to answer those tricky bursary questions, our guide to Subject Knowledge Enhancement will give you the answers to confidently promote SKE to candidates applying to your teacher training programme. 

This guide will cover everything from:

  • Making SKE part of your recruitment: how you can use it to expand your recruitment pool and ensure you're not missing out on those candidates who hold non subject specific degrees with the potential to become great teachers. 
  • Why choose Tes Institute and what's different about our courses?
  • FAQs: Addressing some of the most common questions we receive from ITT providers, for example what feedback will you receive, does it cost the ITT provider anything and how often SKE programmes start
