Funding to provide teacher subject specialism training courses in secondary mathematics, core maths, physics and modern foreign languages.
The purpose of teacher subject specialism training (TSST) is to improve the subject knowledge of non-specialist teachers and those looking to return to the teaching profession, and increase the number of hours taught in secondary mathematics, core maths, physics and modern foreign languages.
Local lead schools will work in partnership with other schools and strategic partners to design and deliver teacher subject specialism training to meet the needs of schools in their locality and region.
Regional lead schools will co-ordinate and develop teacher subject specialism training in their region. Regional lead schools will work alongside local lead schools to plan provision ensuring geographical coverage.
Grants will be paid to regional lead schools who will distribute the funding to local lead schools.
TSST grant funding applications for the 2018 to 2019 academic year has closed.
