TSST

TSST is designed to:

  • - improve the subject knowledge of non-specialist teachers and returning teachers
  • - increase the number of hours taught in these subjects

For the purpose of TSST, non-specialists are teachers who have not undertaken initial teacher training (ITT) in the TSST subject they have applied for.

Teacher training and professional development in Physics.

The programme will run in one of two formats across 5 different geographic clusters.

8 face-to-face instances (two full days and six 4-hour extended twilights sessions) over three terms, 6 face-to-face full days over two terms. Content includes all key topics at KS3/4, including:

  • Energy
  • Electricity
  • Waves & Radiation
  • Forces
  • Space

Programmes will include significant gap-tasks, to encourage participant reflection.

Programmes include blended learning, access to online compulsory and additional voluntary tasks and information.

The total amount of learning time is approx. 60-65 hours

The delivery team is overseen by a STEM Learning Senior Facilitator and facilitators are either IoP consultants or trained via STEM Learning in delivering CPD using the Facilitator Development Programme. New facilitators are expected to shadow experienced facilitators for some time. Our participants submit a portfolio of evidence as part of the programme, which includes an application to the externally accredited STEM Educators award scheme (free) offered by STEM Learning.
