Course Summary

Overview

This face-to-face, classroom-based taught course will update your skills so that you are prepared and fully confident to start training as a Mathematics teacher, capable of teaching up to and including A level.

The course runs from mid-September until June. Successful students will then progress onto the PGCE Mathematics course the following September.

The course has a proven track record in enabling those with A level Mathematics, but with a degree in a different subject area, to go on to a successful career as a teacher. Many former Sunderland SKE trainees are now still in teaching and holding positions of responsibility within schools.

The need to complete a SKE course will be discussed with you on interview to your preferred teacher training course.

Entry requirements

Students must have an offer of a place on a Mathematics teacher training course either with the University of Sunderland or another training provider. This offer should be conditional upon successful completion of a Mathematics SKE course. All SKE trainees are expected to have A level Mathematics (preferably grade C or above) or equivalent before the start of the course. if you have an offer of a place on a teacher training course elsewhere, you can still join our SKE courses. However, if you are offered a place on a University of Sunderland PGCE Secondary Education course and a condition is to complete a SKE course beforehand, then you should expect to complete the SKE course here at the University.
