Candidates who can demonstrate that they have an aptitude for teaching during their interview, but who don’t quite meet the university’s requirements for subject knowledge may be offered an opportunity to complete a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course before starting teacher training with St John Bosco Teaching School Alliance.
Who is SKE for?
If you want to teach a subject but you are not sure if your subject knowledge is up to scratch, we can point you in the direction of a Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course. This could be because your degree wasn't in your chosen subject, but it was closely related, or you have an A level in the subject. An SKE will allow you to build up or refresh your existing knowledge.
SKE courses are free for shortage subjects such as Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English, RE, DT, Computing, Geography, Primary Maths, French, German or Spanish and come with a bursary to support you while you study.
Who We Recommend
We recommend the SKE courses with Eureka Online College as they offer courses which can be completed online meaning your learning will take place at home and you can fit your studies in with your personal and professional commitments.

You can only register for a SKE course once you have accepted a place on a teacher training course
