Subject Studies are usually delivered as 15 to 20 twilight sessions and mostly take place in the first half of the year so that you have the tools to succeed in your school placements. They are designed to illustrate ways to help you apply your knowledge and understanding in designing and teaching lessons.
Sessions are delivered by your Lead Subject Mentor (LSM) and other experienced teachers from within partnership schools. Sessions are held across a selection of partnership schools.
During the selection process, you will complete a Subject Knowledge Audit. You will review this with your LSM at the start of the training year and it will become the starting point for your Individual Learning Plan 1 (ILP1) which will establish target areas for the development of your subject knowledge and application. Subject Studies sessions will help you to meet these targets, but you will also be responsible for identifying and filling any gaps in your subject knowledge.
Where they exist, details of Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses will be made available to you if your application to us is successful.
