Due to a high demand in SKE this year and reduced funding from DfE - we can only provide SKE courses for students at universities and/or schools that themselves draw down SKE funding. Please see below a list of ITT’s we can provide SKE for the rest of this academic year.
We can only provide SKE courses for the following institutions:
Please do not submit an application to us unless you have a conditional ITT offer with one of the the above ITT providers.
The Maths subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) course caters for Primary Maths, GCSE and A level topics which are organised into units making it easy for our tutors to put together a bespoke online course allowing us to cater for all abilities and starting points.
We offer the full range of SKE course lengths, from 8 to 28 weeks.
Students and tutors like how our courses introduce the important principles that underpin all Maths; the depth and detail of the course that allows interested students to immerse themselves in the subject and the engaging resources available throughout our suite of maths courses that help our students gain theoretical mathematical skills helping them with the transition into teaching up to A level in school.
Something that our students often praise us on after completing one of our maths SKE courses is that they leave with not just new maths knowledge but also:
• improved mathematical understanding and technique
• acute logical and philosophical thinking and problem-solving abilities
• the ability to process, interpret and analyse information
We welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds and starting points. Our courses reflect this in that we are able to start students from foundation maths moving up to more advanced mathematic technique over the length of their SKE course. We have a middle entry programme to support those with higher mathematic ability and experience who would like to bypass the foundation stage and get stuck in and we also have students that join us with secure maths at GCSE wishing to complete A level and above. There is something for everyone.
Students that join us with an already good understanding of Maths are given the chance to study it at a more abstract level. On our more advanced SKE maths courses, we provide the mathematical theories that form the foundation for further studies in Maths or another Maths based subject.
The following list of topics cover the main headline topics. In practice, they would be subdivided into refined units of study, pieced together by your personal tutor after assessing and taking into account your subject knowledge audit. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to speak with one of our maths tutors.
• Basic Trigonometry
• Advanced Trigonometry
• Functional skills
• Mechanics and Vectors
• Sequences and Series
• Exponentials and logarithms
• Complex Numbers
• Roots and Coefficients of a quadratic equation
• Matrices and Transformations
I have over 20 years teaching experience and during this time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise that I have enjoyed sharing on the Maths SKE programme here at Eureka Online College.
In my previous role as a tutor for the North West Kent SCITT teacher training scheme, I mentored trainee teachers, guiding and advising them on all aspects of teaching, which allowed me to further develop my mentoring skills.
I was an examiner for many years. I found this invaluable experience to aid my teaching. It gave me a great insight into students’ common errors and major misconceptions in Mathematics. This also aided me in my role as Assessment Coordinator where I analysed student performance to inform future planning.
During my career as a maths teacher, I have held numerous other roles including; Numeracy Liaison Officer, Primary Link Teacher and SEN advisor for Maths. I have also been heavily involved with the LEA in the southeast of England – advising, liaising, networking and contributing to the development of Maths teaching ideas and resources in light of continual curriculum changes.
My name’s Terry Norman and I've been a maths teacher for 9 years now. In that time I have been a curriculum key stage leader and a school based mentor on both the teacher training programme and for NQT induction. I've always enjoyed maths and I am enthusiastic about teaching it. Although I am not an AST, I am often the teacher that newly qualified teachers are sent to observe if they need help with how to engage and inspire students in the classroom. I have been delivering online lessons with Eureka Online College on their Maths SKE programme for just over a year now and I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience. I look forward to working with many more preITT students hoping to start their teacher training next year.
I have worked as a maths teacher for over 7 years and have developed my teaching practice in 4 different schools across the country.
During my career so far I have held many roles; in my first school I was quickly promoted to second in department and I was soon picked to mentor and train new and unqualified teachers - something I have continued to do throughout my career. More recently I have been involved in coaching staff members on improving their teaching practice and holding workshops on creative teaching strategies.
My previous school saw me as one of the lead teachers who focussed on improving the maths pass rate by over 20%. Within my current role I work closely with other staff in the department in order to organise and share resources and I have held information events for parents on how to supports their child’s learning.
I very much enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with students studying with Eureka Online College
Please see below a typical simulation that students will have access to as part of their course and which could be used in the classroom after SKE training (Best viewed on a laptop or tablet). This is just one example, there are many more rich resources available to students signed up to our maths SKE.
