Teacher Subject Specialism Training (Mathematics)
Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) is available to qualified, non-specialist mathematics teachers who would like to develop their subject knowledge in order to deliver high quality, engaging lessons in this shortage subject. The focus of the training is to increase subject knowledge in all or some specific topic areas and key stages to enable non-specialist teachers to teach mathematics. To be eligible, candidates should not have obtained QTS in mathematics. The training is free, being subsidised by the DfE. The training will take place at South Hunsley School. This is our second year of offering this programme, upskilling non-specialist maths teachers to enable them to deliver part or all of a maths curriculum up to KS4.
Participants who complete TSST will be awarded certification from the University of Hull and can, upon submission of a 20 hour written reflection of subject development receive 20 masters credits.
