Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE)


“One of the best things about the Hibernia College UK (HCUK) Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course is how convenient it is. As you can work through the sessions at any time, you can fit it around your work, family or other commitments. From speaking to the other people on the course, in the forums and during the tutorials, it is apparent that many have young families, meaning that they would be unable to do a traditional SKE course. HCUK is ideal to address this issue.


“I required an SKE of 6 months, 5 months before I was due to start my School Direct Programme. Normally this would mean that I would have had to wait until the following year to start on an Initial Teacher Training course. However as the HCUK course is online, it can be done in my spare time and therefore the end of my SKE and the start of my School Direct Programme can overlap.


“From my experience so far, the SKE through HCUK is an exciting and fulfilling way of gaining the knowledge needed to start on the School Direct Programme or any Initial Teacher Training Course. The support network is fantastic and widespread. If you have any problems, there are a number of people that you can approach; depending upon the situation you are in. Your main port of call is your Pathway Tutor, who is responsible for your personal development throughout the course. If you have any subject specific problems then you can contact the Subject Lead Tutor directly.”
