Teacher Subject Specialist Training (TSST)
Applications for the 2019/20 TSST programme are now open. Applications close on 1 November 2019.
There are two courses available: Teaching Mathematics at Key Stage 3 and Teaching Mathematics GCSE – Higher Tier
Target Audience: non-specialist and returning teachers of mathematics
Format: 6 days of face-to-face training over the course of 6 months followed by a 2-day Easter residential and supported by an online portal for sharing resources. Full programme dates are available by following the 'more information' link below.
Aim: to improve the subject knowledge (including pedagogy) and increase the number of hours taught
How to get involved: complete an application form on the Exeter Maths School website
Cost: This course is free of charge to participants from the state sector that have the support of their school and are committed to attending the full course.
Additional Support: We recognise that 6 days out of school equates to a lot of cover. Whilst we are unable to meet this cost in full, our funding enables us to make a contribution to it: depending upon the number of participants this will be in the region of £300 per teacher for the full course.
