Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST): Physics

IMG_4789Delivered by schools, and approved and funded by the Department for Education, TSST programmes are free to participants and ours takes place throughout the course of the year.

Physics TSST Courses aim to improve the physics subject knowledge of:

  • Established teachers who are new to teaching physics
  • NQTs that do not have a specialist in Physics
  • Teachers returning to teaching physics

They are designed to enable non-specialists either to take on physics teaching as an additional specialism or to retrain as a physics specialist teacher. In addition, they can support teachers who wish to return to the profession after a period away from the classroom.

Future Physics Leaders

This is a TLIF programme funded by the DfE and delivered by the Insititute of Physics.

Northern Lights works with the IoP to support one of the Bradford Hubs of the FPL programme, whose aims are to:

  • Whether specialist or non-specialist, help to improve teachers’ pedagogical and subject knowledge;
  • Improve the career progression of specialist physics teacher leaders by expanding teacher capabilities through professional development; and
  • Improve the retention of high-quality teachers and leaders by providing mentoring for newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and setting out a clear path of advancement for emerging physics leaders. Above all, the aim of the programme is to improve students’ experience of physics and open up to them the opportunities that are made available by a qualification in physics.
