TSST Physics

2018-2019 programme

Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) is an NCTL funded programme, available to qualified, non-specialist 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 and subject specific pedagogy across all topic areas and key stages to enable non-specialist teachers to teach physics.  The training provided is free to participant schools and is a great CPD option for those currently teaching or transitioning to teaching physics.

Participants who complete TSST will be awarded a certificate of completion from the Teaching School as well as formal CPD certification from the University of Hull. Further reflective writing can lead into Masters credits with the University of Hull, please contact us for further information on this.


To be eligible, candidates should meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Secondary non-specialist teachers who could potentially teach mathematics in addition to, or as their main subject.
  • Secondary non-specialist teachers who are currently teaching mathematics (either full-time or in addition to the specialist subject).
  • Secondary teachers who are looking to return to the profession.
  • Secondary teachers, who are members of and have been awarded Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS) by the Society for Education, who have firm plans to teach a TSST subject.
  • Supply teachers, who do not have a contract with a school and are committed to returning to a permanent post.
  • Teachers without QTS working in academies.
  • Primary teachers are only eligible to undertake TSST if they will be teaching Y7/8 pupils as part of cross-school KS2/3 collaboration (e.g. in a multi-academy trust (MAT)) or if they have firm plans to convert from primary to a secondary teaching post.


The training is free, being subsidised by the DfE and will take place at South Hunsley School, led by a dedicated School Improvement Leader for mathematics.  This is our third year of offering this programme, upskilling non-specialist physics teachers to enable them to deliver part or all of a physics curriculum up to KS4.

The programme is delivered through six face-to-face sessions during the academic year 2018 – 2019 with guided reading and reflection between these. Each session is focused on subject knowledge and pedagogy and gives participants access to a range of practical resources that they can use in the classroom.  We are currently in the process of finalising dates and times.  To register your interest in the course please complete and return the attached registration form.
