Course summary

Subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) courses are for graduates who want to train as secondary school teachers, but who must first develop their subject knowledge further.

It may be that your degree wasn’t in your chosen subject area, or perhaps you have relevant professional experience but need to learn how to apply that to teaching. Your PGCE or School Direct provider may refer you for SKE.

After successful completion of the course, you are expected to go straight into initial teacher training that leads to qualified teacher status (QTS). This can be at the University of Brighton or another institution.

Biology

Our Biology SKE will prepare you for starting a secondary biology initial teacher training programme. The eight-week course requires a minimum of 200 hours of study and has start dates from April 2021. Our courses are fully flexible so you can fit them around your life and commitments. You can put in as little or as much time per physical week as you like provided you have put in at least 200 hours by the submission point in mid-August.

Careers

Our SKE courses are designed for those going into initial teacher training but who do not have the necessary subject knowledge. There is a national shortage of teachers in all the subject areas our SKEs cover, and therefore employment prospects once you have qualified are extremely good.
