Teacher Subject Specialism Training (Mathematics/Physics)
If you are a Qualified/Unqualified teacher and have been teaching, or are thinking about teaching, Mathematics or Physics as a non-specialist then this programme will support you.
This programme is also suitable for NQTs and teachers of Biology and Chemistry.
We have been approved by the DfE to develop and deliver a series of subject knowledge sessions designed to support teachers in their delivery of these specialist subjects.
If eligible, you can attend all or just a selection of sessions. The entire programme is fully funded.
