Great teachers have strong subject knowledge that they draw upon to make the subject come alive for the children they teach. In previous years Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses were offered by many external organisations, funded by the Department for Education. SKE packages are currently under review by the DfE and we have been informed that SKE funding and SKE subject availability may change, with information due to be released at the end of 2020 after the government’s Spending Review. Here at YWTT, we feel strongly that no candidate should be disadvantaged by this situation.
YWTT is committed to supporting our trainees in the development of their subject knowledge and we are pleased to offer our own YWTT SKE packages carefully designed to by our YWTT subject leads. Here at YWTT, we believe that SKE courses can support you to teach a subject that you are passionate about but may be outside your degree subject specialism. Our SKE packages are bespoke and will be tailored to the needs of the individual candidate, perhaps supporting you to brush up on areas of your subject that you haven’t studied for a while. SKE packages will be discussed at interview where appropriate, with a bespoke plan implemented where necessary.
