Teacher subject specialism training (TSST)

Subject specialism training in secondary physics for non-specialist and returning teachers.


Physics TSST Courses aim to improve the physics subject knowledge of:

  • Established teachers who are new to teaching physics
  • Teachers returning to teaching physics

The courses are run by schools and are approved and funded by the Department for Education. They are free to participants and usually take place in term-time.

They are designed to enable non-specialists either to take on physics teaching as an additional specialism or to retrain as a physics specialist teacher."

In addition, they also support teachers who wish to return to the profession after a period away from the classroom.

Please note that this programme is coordinated by the Department for Education and is available in England only.
