North West Kent

The purpose of teacher subject specialism training is to improve the subject knowledge of non-specialist teachers and returning teachers, and increase the number of hours taught.

Teacher subject specialism training in mathematics and physics was launched in 2015 to 2016 and aims to build the capacity of non-specialists who may be able to move into a mathematics or physics role. In addition, it aims to upskill non-specialists who are currently teaching mathematics or physics and those looking to return to the profession.

Teacher subject specialism training in secondary modern foreign languages (MFL) was launched in 2016 to 2017 to build additional capacity to provide the English Baccalaureate (EBacc).  This training could also be of benefit to teachers who may be able to teach a second language in addition to their specialist subject.

This training is free of charge for participants.

Completion of the training will be rewarded with 15 masters credits from the University of Sussex.

This year (2017/18), we are offering TSST in the following subject:

Maths (including core)


MFL (French, German, Mandarin or Japanese)
