Abstract

Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses aim to provide sufficient subject knowledge in ‘shortage subject’ areas, such as mathematics and science, to enable those who attend them to then undertake Initial Teacher Training and to go on to become teachers in secondary schools. This paper examines the learning experience of a group of SKE participants, and assesses whether this added significantly to their subject knowledge and helped prepare them for work in the classroom, comparing this outcome with conventional teacher trainees who had not undertaken such a course.
