Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) for Teacher Training

Course content

Subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses are for graduates who want to train as secondary school teachers, but who must first develop their subject knowledge further.

It may be that your degree wasn’t in your chosen subject area, or perhaps you have relevant professional experience but need to learn how to apply that to teaching. Your PGCE or School Direct provider may refer you for SKE.

After successful completion of the course, you are expected to go straight into initial teacher training that leads to qualified teacher status (QTS). This can be at the University of Brighton or another institution.

We offer SKEs in the following subjects:

  • biology
  • chemistry
  • mathematics
  • physics.

Biology

Our Biology SKE will prepare you for starting a secondary biology initial teacher training programme.

We offer courses with a duration of 8, 16 or 28 weeks depending on your individual needs. Course dates are flexible and begin between November and June each year.

The majority of the Biology SKE course is delivered through online learning, with one week of tuition at the Falmer campus in the summer.

Chemistry

Our Chemistry SKE will prepare you for starting a secondary chemistry initial teacher training programme.

We offer courses with a duration of 8, 16 or 28 weeks depending on your individual needs. Course dates are flexible and begin between November and June each year.

The majority of the Chemistry SKE course is delivered through online learning, with one week of tuition at the Falmer campus in the summer.

Mathematics

We offer a range of Mathematics SKE courses that will suit various applicants, including those with a keen enthusiasm for mathematics but who may not have high-level mathematics qualifications. Each course will prepare you for starting a mathematics initial teacher training programme.

Courses run for 8, 20 or 28-weeks with start dates in February and June each year for 8 and 20-week courses and September for 28 week courses. The length of your course will be determined by your own needs.

Physics

Our Physics SKE will prepare you for starting a secondary physics initial teacher training programme.

We offer courses with a duration of 8, 16 or 28 weeks depending on your individual needs. Course dates are flexible and start between November and June each year.

The majority of the Physics SKE course is delivered through online learning, with one week of tuition at the Falmer campus in the summer.

Careers and employability

Our SKE courses are designed for those going into initial teacher training but who do not have the necessary subject knowledge. There is a national shortage of teachers in all of the subject areas our SKEs cover, and therefore employment prospects once you have qualified are extremely good.
