Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE)

Opportunities to develop subject knowledge, if necessary, are available prior to commencement of the programme in a variety of ways, depending on your chosen subject and available in both a school based and university setting. This will be discussed at interview.


Assessment takes two approaches; through lesson observations and through completion of academic assignments, both of which assess a trainee’s ability to meet the Teachers Standards (2012). Assignments are based on reflective practice and the programme leads to the award of the Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Entry Requirements

You should have or expect to achieve an Undergraduate degree (or recognised equivalent) in a subject related discipline at 2:2 or above. Some funded subject knowledge enhancement courses are available with bursary opportunities.

GCSE English Language and Mathematics at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent). Original evidence of GCSE passes (or equivalent) and your degree (if you have already graduated) will be requested at interview. Level 2 numeracy and literacy qualifications are not considered as equivalent.

If you have non-UK qualifications, please check their suitability on the NARIC website.
