Benefits of SKE
Our online SKE courses help initial teacher training providers, universities and School Direct partnerships by:
- Widening your pool of potential candidates to include those with lower subject knowledge, a non-specific subject degree or lower classification of degree
- Helping you to recruit more trainees in shortage subjects that are difficult to recruit for
"The past few years have seen us achieving our highest ever levels of employment and trainee teacher outcomes. We feel that one of the key contributors to this has been our developing partnership with SKE and Tes Institute" Stuart Russell- Kent and Medway training
As a result of our SKE courses your postgraduate trainee will:
- Build some of the skills they need to become an outstanding teacher
- Develop ideas and activities that they can use in the classroom
"I'm no longer focusing as a student, but rather how to teach a student"- Izzy Perrin, Maths SKE
We have produced a number of case studies that can be found here by selecting 'Subject Knowledge Enhancement' from the drop down menu. A selection of teachers, trainees and SCITT directors have shared their experiences about the programme, which may provide some context into how SKE can be used to help your trainee teacher recruitment.
