Subject Knowledge Enhancement

As part of Archway Learning Trust we are delighted to have been awarded by the DfE as an accredited provider of Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses for teacher training

Why choose Bluecoat SCITT to complete your SKE?

Our Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses aim to prepare you for your initial teacher training by helping you to gain the depth of subject knowledge and skills you need to be able to teach your chosen subject.

AIMS

Our SKE courses aim to help you to:

  • Gain comprehensive knowledge and understanding of your chosen subject
  • Identify key concepts within your subject
  • Gain skills to design, present and evaluate lessons to have an impact on pupil progress
  • Improve your critical analysis, reflection and evaluation skills
  • Discover ideas and activities that you can use in the classroom from your own learning journey

BENEFITS

  • Tailored Course Lengths to suit you – range between 8-28 weeks
  • Range of Secondary Subjects
  • Funding and Bursaries available
  • Free for eligible learners

Courses now open for candidates starting their teacher training in September 2022

ELIGIBILITY

Our SKE courses are designed for ITT participants who need to gain the depth of knowledge needed to train to teach their chosen subject. To be able to undertake a SKE course this must be set as a condition for your ITT offer and your ITT provider must agree that without the course you would be highly unlikely to meet the subject knowledge requirements of the Teachers’ Standards by the time your ITT is completed.

  • SKE is set as a condition of your ITT offer
  • Your ITT subject focus and SKE match
  • Your degree in your ITT subject focus was not awarded in the last five years
  • You have a degree 2:2 or above. Third and Ordinary degree can access course funding

FUNDING AND BURSARY

If your SKE and ITT do not overlap your bursary payment will be £175 a week for full time study to reflect 25 hours study as set by the DfE (pro rata for part time)
