The guidance explains what subject knowledge enhancement is, how to apply, who can benefit from it, and how providers will deliver the programme.

Subject knowledge enhancement programmes:

  • help applicants gain the depth of subject knowledge needed to train and teach their chosen subject
  • only apply to mathematics
  • are only for pre-service, post-graduate programmes
  • specifically support programmes which allow trainees to teach maths to GCSE and level 3
