What can I expect from the
University College?
• SKE courses are funded TDA programmes designed to meet
the needs of aspiring secondary mathematics teachers.
• The purpose of this programme is to enable its participants to
be in a position to satisfy the subject knowledge requirements
as set out in the Professional Standards Q14.
• The course characterises this as a Profound Understanding of
Fundamental Mathematics.
• We monitor your progress in this direction and provide you
with regular feedback channelled through your personal tutor
with whom you will have an individual tutorial once or twice
each term where progress will be discussed using your audit
and assessment feedback.

What is expected of me?
• The TDA provide all participants (EEC, MEC and ERIC)
with a training bursary to facilitate their studying on
the Enhancement course.
• You must attend all taught sessions and participate
fully in the learning and assessment process.
• You are required to adhere to assessment deadlines,
to know where to access all relevant material, to
respect University College property/staff/students,
keep appointments and maintain your audit.
