Free with every Biology course

Enrol on one of our Biology courses and you will be given access to modules at the same level in Chemistry and Physics.

We understand the requirement for most science teachers to teach all three sciences at GCSE. For this reason, we offer free access to the resources in the corresponding sciences.

You are assessed in Biology with optional modules in Chemistry and Physics. We also add optional modules in Maths.

You will enjoy access to all of these resources for a further two years throughout your Teacher Training and NQT years.

Eligibility criteria

To apply for one of our Biology SKE courses, you will need to have been offered a place on a Teacher Training Programme in Biology (or qualifying programme) with successful completion of an SKE a condition of that offer.

It is important that you discuss with your provider which of our courses is most suited to your needs and have a clear idea of the duration of the SKE required. Each partner supplies their own tutors and course leaders plus additional and unique educational components.
