TSST

Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) is aimed at current secondary school teachers who are not subject specialists but want to improve their subject knowledge in order to teach at KS3 or KS4. It is also suitable for teachers returning to the profession who would like to refresh their subject knowledge or overseas trained teachers looking to gain understanding of teaching in the UK. We offer two TSST courses in Maths and MFL (Spanish).

This training is free of charge for participants (DFE funded).

For secondary mathematics eligible participants include:

  • non-specialist teachers who could potentially teach secondary mathematics in addition to, or as their main subject
  • non-specialist teachers who are currently teaching mathematics (either full-time or in addition to the specialist subject)
  • teachers who are looking to return to the profession

In addition to non-specialists and returning teachers, teacher subject specialism training in modern foreign languages (MFL) also targets specialist MFL teachers who are not currently teaching MFL but who need refresher training, to enable a move back to an MFL role. This training could also be of benefit to teachers who may be able to teach a second language in addition to their specialist subject. Eligible participants for this include:

  • teachers not currently teaching MFL with post A level MFL qualifications
  • teachers not currently teaching MFL who have good A level qualifications
  • teachers not teaching MFL who are native/ near native speakers
  • non-specialist teachers currently teaching MFL in addition to their specialist subject
  • specialist MFL teachers who are not currently teaching MFL and who need refresher training to enable a move back to an MFL role
  • specialist MFL teachers who have the capacity to teach a new language in addition to their language specialism
  • teachers who are looking to return to the profession
  • overseas trained teachers
