Teacher Subject Specialism Training

Teacher Subject Specialism Training

Northern Lights offers two Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) programmes. 

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

Delivered by schools, and approved and funded by the Department for Education, TSST programmes are free to participants and usually take place in term-time.

TSST Modern Foreign Languages

Our TSST MFL programme is delivered in eight sessions (2 full day and 6 half day) at Belle Vue Girls’ School in Bradford by experienced teachers from alliance schools. Target language sessions are supported by Foreign Language Assistants and participants complete online modules independently to support their face to face sessions.
