Support for non-physics teachers who teach physics

Whatever your specialism, most science teachers will work across the science curriculum during their career. If you haven't studied physics for some years or feel less strong mathematically, being asked to teach physics can feel particularly daunting.

We're here to help during this challenging time.

Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST)

TSST courses teach secondary physics to non-specialist and returning teachers. The courses are run by schools and approved and funded by the DfE. 

Find further information if you are:

  • a teacher new to teaching physics or a teacher returning to teaching physics
  • a TSST course provider
  • an Initial Teacher Education provider
