Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Delivered 100% online, our subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses help to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogy of prospective teachers who are due to start initial teacher training. Available across the shortage subjects, these SKE courses are ideal for anyone with a non-subject specific degree, or a lack of subject confidence.

Straight to Teaching

This Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) preparation programme is the perfect way for unqualified teachers, HLTAs, TAs and other suitable school staff to become a qualified teacher without leaving their school. The programme is delivered as QTS preparation followed by application for the Assessment Only (AO) route to gaining QTS.

Assessment Only route

This twelve week, in-school programme is for experienced teachers who want to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) without any further preparation. If you already have a degree, significant teaching experience and can demonstrate that you already meet the English Teachers’ Standards, the Assessment Only route can help you gain QTS without leaving your school.

School Direct

We’re working in partnership with a network of schools to deliver School Direct Initial Teacher Training (ITT) that leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). This school-led teacher training programme provides a unique blend of in-school experience and online learning with tutor support.

Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship

The Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship programme is a new, nationally recognised school-based route into teaching that leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
