Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST)

Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) Programmes – starting October 2019 – Secondary Mathematics and Secondary Physics

Redborne Upper School, in partnership with The University of Bedfordshire, is running two school led secondary TSST programmes from October 2019 – June 2020.  Places are currently available on the programmes.

Are you currently employed as secondary school teacher with QTS who wishes to develop either their secondary mathematics or physics subject knowledge because you currently sometimes teach these subjects, or may be asked to do so in the future? Or, are you a non-practising secondary mathematics/physics teacher with QTS or a non-practising secondary school teacher with QTS who, whilst not a mathematics/physics specialist has some previous experience of teaching mathematics/physics?

Perhaps you are a Teacher without QTS working in an Academy. Or a member of and have been awarded Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS) by the Society for Education . If so, you too would be eligible for funding. You may be a teacher with QTS who is looking to return to the profession.

If so, do you want to access the relevant programme, which is free of charge?

The programme will provide you with four days of intensive secondary mathematics/physics training at the University of Bedfordshire (Polhill Campus), as well as access to online resources, in-school teaching opportunities and support, and quality assurance upon successful completion.

The outline structure of the Programmes is shown in the attachment below. Please also see the specific flyers for the two programmes we offer.
