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 mathematics. The training provided is free to participant schools and is a great CPD option for those currently teaching or transitioning to teaching mathematics.
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:
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 maths teachers to enable them to deliver part or all of a maths curriculum up to KS4.
The programme is delivered through six face-to-face sessions during the academic year 2017 – 2018 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. Each session will run 1:00-4:00pm at South Hunsley Secondary School and lunch will be provided.

Through a blended learning approach, we aim to develop participants not only to be conversant with the relevant subject knowledge but also the most effective pedagogic approaches associated with learning in these areas. Participants will be given an experienced professional learning tutor who will support you throughout the programme.
For those wishing to pursue a Masters degree, our programme is externally accredited by Hull University, reflecting the level of rigour of our course.
Sessions will take place in the dedicated Teaching School spaces within our school. We are conveniently located 1 minute from the A63 with easy access by car and rail.
