Subject Knowledge Enhancement Courses

The DfE funding available for Subject Knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses in 2022/23 will be announced soon.

We are able to make an offer of a teacher training place with the condition of completing a SKE course prior to the start of the PGCE course.

SKE courses are available if:

  • your degree wasn’t in your chosen subject, but is closely related
  • you studied the subject at A level, but not at degree level
  • you have an unrelated degree, but relevant professional experience in the subject

Eligibility excludes anyone who has a degree in their chosen ITT subject that was awarded in the previous 5 years.

We identify an applicant’s need for a SKE as part of their selection process, usually at interview.

Training costs are covered by the DfE.

Participant bursary funding is £175 per week for the duration of the course.

SKE courses are available in these subjects:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computing
  • Design & Technology
  • English
  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Religious Education
