Update: DfE will only fund RE SKE if enrolled / place confirmed by 10th April 2024

Religious Education SKE (SKE)

The DfE have now made funding available for the Subject Knowledge Enhancement of Religious Education. This will allow potential trainees to study on an 8 week SKE course in preparation for their Initial Teacher Training.

The Religious Education (RE SKE) course will allow you to take an exciting route onto a Religious Studies ITT. It will provide you with the confidence to teach RE at GCSE level and beyond where you will develop knowledge that will enable you to challenge your own students on questions about belief, values, meaning, purpose and truth, enabling those students to develop their own attitudes towards religious issues.

What can I study on the RE SKE course?

I have been teaching for 24 years and have worked in 3 large comprehensives. After only a few years of teaching I became the subject lead for RE and this is where my passion has stayed. I have been subject lead in two schools and enjoy preparing and delivering the content.


RE is a broad and fascinating subject to teach and every year pupils can share new ideas and see faith from different perspectives. I have also worked for the exam board in the summer marking season. This gives a great insight in to what the exam board are looking for within structuring answers.


RE gives the freedom to explore a wide variety of philosophical and ethical ideas and gives pupils the opportunity to develop their own views and develop a sense of self.


As well as teaching, I have been an active scout member leading Beavers and now at the older end with explorers.  This has been a great opportunity to explore the outdoors and keep active. Teaching can be an absorbing career and it is good to do things outside of this, scouting has been a good way to try something different. I also love being creative and making things, during covid I was able to hone my crochet skills and learn something new.


I am a huge potter head, everybody needs a hobby!
