Teacher Subject Specialism Training

Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST): Physics

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.

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

  • Established teachers who are new to teaching 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.

Now in its second year of delivering this course, Northern Lights TSA is delighted to continue to offer this opportunity to participants as a series of twilight sessions. Hosted in the new STEM centre at Skipton Girls’ High School, participants are being guided through a sequence of lessons led by leading Educational Consultant and former Head of Science, Andrea Mapplebeck.
