Whether you opt for a Chemistry or Physics Subject Knowledge Enhancement course, you will experience a mix of theoretical and practical sessions on the subject. A variety of teaching strategies will be used with the emphasis on the development of practical investigative and group work, all with a problem-solving approach. Progress on each module will mostly be assessed through formal assignments. You will also spend a short time in school. For either subject you will also participate in sessions on the mathematical and ICT skills needed to become a teacher. These topics will be revisited and developed throughout the course.

Chemistry

Includes a mix of theoretical and practical sessions in Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. This also includes a student-led small scale research project that is based on a chemical theme.

Physics

Includes a mix of theoretical and practical sessions on Mechanics, Electricity, Waves, Astrophysics, Materials, Further Mechanics, Particle Physics, Fields, Nuclear Physics and Further Radio astronomy. This also includes a student-led small scale research project that is based on a Physics theme.

For both subjects, extra sessions on the mathematical and ICT skills needed to become a teacher are also taught. The subject knowledge, ICT and mathematical skills will be taught as a spiraling curriculum, where topics will be revisited and developed throughout the course.

Funding

SKE trainees may be entitled to a tax free bursary from the TDA. For further information please visit the Teaching Agency (formerly TDA) website.
