Our SKE partnership

We invite you to become a VIDLEARN Partner in the delivery of Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses. Join our growing partnership and benefit from a bespoke, fully resourced suite of SKE courses that you can use to support your ITT programme.

You will have a unique website branded to your HEI, SCITT or School Direct provision, providing you with a ready-made SKE provision to enhance the courses that you offer.

Offering your own in-house SKE courses in partnership with VIDLEARN will widen your selection and recruitment to trainees with a variety of backgrounds. You can begin to develop a relationship with your trainees earlier and can track their progress throughout the SKE. Where trainees need additional support, this can be identified at an earlier stage.

Our SKE provision can be seamlessly incorporated into your existing ITT programme, adding an important pre-ITT element to ensure that all your trainees are fully prepared for the ITT year.

The National Online Teacher Training (NOTT) programme offers a new approach to teacher training, blending online study and school-based placements. Full-time and part-time courses are available leading to PGCE with QTS. Train to teach one of the priority subjects:

Our courses lead to PGCE with QTS with full-time and part-time courses available. We offer you support before and during your teacher training. Our advisors will discuss how this can work for you.
