Abstract

The UK needs more teachers, particularly in shortage subjects. One way this shortage is being addressed is through Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses; aspiring teachers lacking enough degree-level knowledge of their chosen curriculum subject can complete a fully-funded course before commencing their Initial Teacher Training. Canterbury Christ Church University was the first university provider to offer a fully online SKE course, using computer-based assessments and gap analyses, access to high-quality digital materials and live group tutorials to provide a supportive and flexible environment in which students work autonomously.

This article outlines the mechanism and impact of our ‘flexible autonomous’ approach through the lens of course designer, tutor and student.
