Training to teach secondary subjects

As a teacher, you can make your skills and knowledge really count, and inspire young minds with your enthusiasm and passion in teaching your preferred subject. You can use this section to find out more about the different subjects you can teach.


Priority subjects

These subjects are particular priorities for schools. As a result, you’ll find there is lots of support available to help you get into the classroom, from generous tax-free bursaries or scholarships to extra support during the application process. 

If you don’t have a relevant degree or need to refresh your knowledge you could complete a fully funded subject knowledge enhancement course (SKE) before starting your training. 

Other subjects

These subjects are very popular and teacher training places tend to fill up quickly. You can search on the Department for Education’s search service: Find Postgraduate Teacher Training, for training places in all secondary subjects.
