You can train to teach any one of a wide variety of subjects. However, some subjects are particular priorities and so additional financial support is available. If you're eligible, you may be able to receive tax-free funding of up to £25,000 to support your training.

If you're interested in teaching one of the subjects below, but studied for a different degree, you can boost your subject knowledge before you begin training by completing a subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) course
