Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE)

Some people who apply for Initial Teacher Training with the potential to become outstanding maths teachers may not have enough specific subject knowledge to begin a maths ITT course. Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) programmes are pre-ITT programmes designed to help these applicants gain the depth of subject knowledge needed to train to teach their chosen subject. These arrangements will only apply to the subject of maths, and only for pre service post graduate programmes. They are specifically to support those programmes which enable trainees to teach maths to GCSE and level 3. The 18/19 guidance and the application form are available via this link. Requests for multiple trainees can be included on one request form. Additional copies of the request form can be obtained directly from DfE at
