Fully Funded Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) in Maths and Physics
Teacher subject specialism training (TSST) forms part of a five year commitment to transform STEM teaching in England and is focused on existing teachers, with the aim of building the capacity of non-specialists who may be able to move into a maths or physics role. In addition, it aims to upskill non-specialists who are currently teaching maths or physics and those looking to return to the profession, thereby increasing the number of maths and physics hours taught. There is no financial cost to the participant or their school.
School-led teacher subject specialism training
The recruitment of teachers in STEM subjects is a challenge for many schools and as a result they are deploying non-specialist teachers to cover their specialist recruitment gaps. This can cause disruption for pupils and schools and can impact on attainment.
Training being offered includes face-to-face, online, coaching, lesson observation and mentoring, and is embedded in teachers’ classroom practice.
