Ok I'm interested, what qualifications do I need?
It’s really simple.
We require a minimum of:
Grade C GCSE in maths and English, or equivalent.
A good honours degree
Some classroom experience.
If you’ve got that nailed, you can submit
an application via UCAS.
If you’re keen but think you need
a bit of subject support, a Subject

could be for you.
What subjects can I train
in with SUPA?
Subject Knowledge Enhancemnet Courses (SKE)
Today, teachers find themselves in a modern,
flexible profession, with well-defined career
paths and rewards that match performance.
It’s a fun, stimulating and creative role, with
bags of variety. A classroom is one of the
most exciting workplaces in the world. Every
minute of every day, teachers are called on
to use their management, leadership and
Because you spend so much of your training
year in the classroom, you’re making a
difference to students’ lives from the word go.
If you’re concerned you’re not a
‘typical’ teacher, don’t worry. Teaching
welcomes a genuine mix of applicants.
Recent graduates, people looking for
second careers and returners to the
job market are all being drawn to the
challenge and reward of teaching.
Subject Knowledge Enhancement Courses (SKE)
We offer opportunities, through completing a
University of Southampton Subject Knowledge
Enhancement (SKE) course prior to your PGCE,
to train to teach computer science, mathematics
and sciences, even if you don’t currently have the
required qualifications or detailed knowledge.
Perhaps you have a degree that is closely
related, but not identical, to your preferred subject
or you are a career changer who completed your
degree a while ago.
Whatever the reason, a Subject Knowledge
Enhancement course is ideal if you have the
right qualities and enthusiasm to teach one of
these subjects, but just need some
additional subject support.
The courses are delivered in-house by our
recognised experts, are fully funded –you won’t
pay tuition fees – and you may be eligible for a
bursary to support you through your course.
Courses are between 8 and 12 weeks long
depending on the subject and consist of both face
to face and distance learning.
Brilliant news! Welcome onboard.
Once you’re sure you have the
minimum entry requirements, simply visit the UCAS website and get started.
We’re delighted to be helping you along the path to a new, exciting career in secondary teaching.
