Keele University to offer training for Computer Science Teachers


Posted on 20 December 2012

Keele University has been awarded training places by the Teaching Agency to run a Subject Knowledge Enhancement Programme in Computer Science. Those successfully completing the programme will then be able to progress to a PGCE at Keele or another teacher training provider. 

The proposed 24 week programme will commence in late February 2013 and run until August 2013.  Although information in respect of funding support for students is still awaited, current SKE programmes in other subjects do not charge tuition fees and training bursaries are provided for eligible applicants.  

Please note: Keele University is running two and four week Subject Knowledge Enhancement (Booster) programmes in Computer Science during July/August for prospective PGCE students for 2013/14 who has a relevant degree but whose knowledge and skills need ‘refreshing/updating’.  Applicants should hold an offer of a place on a Computer Science PGCE or other programme leading to a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status. 

Further details about both programmes and how to apply will be available in early January 2013.  Please contact Kirsty Pickin on 01782 733130 or k.a.pickin@keele.ac.uk to register your interest and to request information.
