Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST)


Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) course – Secondary Physics

Redborne Upper School will run a school led secondary Physics TSST course from this December to March next year.  The course, which is free of charge, is for teachers who would like to develop their secondary physics subject knowledge because they currently sometimes teach this subject, or may be asked to do so in the future.

For the purpose of TSST, non-specialists are teachers who have not undertaken initial teacher training (ITT) in the TSST subject in which they intend to train.

Participants will be from the following list:

  • Non-specialist teachers with QTS who could potentially teach mathematics or physics in addition to, or as their main subject.
  • Non-specialist teachers with QTS who are currently teaching mathematics or physics (either full-time or in addition to the specialist subject).
  • Teachers with QTS who are looking to return to the profession.
  • Newly qualified teachers (NQTs) are eligible and very welcome.
  • Primary teachers are eligible if they will be teaching year 7/8 pupils as part of cross-school key stage 2/3 collaboration (e.g. in a multi-academy trust (MAT) or if they have firm plans to convert from primary to a secondary teaching post).
  • Teachers without QTS working in academies are eligible.
  • Those who are members of and have been awarded Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS) by the Society for Education are eligible if they have firm plans to teach a TSST subject in a school or sixth form college.
