Teacher subject specialism training: funding for schools
Apply for funding to provide teacher subject specialism training courses.
As a school, you can apply for funding to develop and deliver teacher subject specialism training.
The purpose of teacher subject specialism training is to improve the subject knowledge of non-specialist and returning teachers. It will increase the number of hours taught by offering school-led teacher subject specialism training opportunities.
In 2016 there are 2 teacher subject specialism training programmes:
- maths and physics
- secondary modern foreign languages (MFL)
There is a separate application process and guidance for each programme.
Your participants can be:
- non-specialist teachers who could potentially teach a relevant subject in addition to their main subject
- non-specialist teachers who are currently teaching a relevant subject either full-time or in addition to their specialist subject
- teachers looking to return to the profession
- language specialists (in the case of MFL) who aren’t currently teaching MFL
- language specialists (in the case of MFL) who could potentially teach an additional language
The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) will support you by:
- listing your courses in our course directory
- providing marketing guidance and templates
- sharing lessons learned, benefits and successful practice from previous teacher subject specialism training programmes
If you’re a teacher looking for teacher subject specialism training courses you’ll need to contact the lead school offering training in your area or that best meets your needs. Please take a look at our course directory for the latest training opportunities.
