Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) Courses

TSST courses are now starting recruitment for the 2018-19 academic year. The courses are funded and co-ordinated through Lead Schools who successfully bid for funding from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL).
More information about the courses can be found at

As in previous years, CIMT are working with a number of Lead Schools to provide varying amounts of support for these TSST courses in the form of recruitment, resources, assessment and tuition. Listed below are the Lead Schools that we are working with to provide TSST courses and the courses they are running. The available courses are Secondary Mathematics, either up to GCSE Foundation Level or GCSE Higher Level, Core Maths, which encompasses a new suite of Level 3 maths qualifications that have now been running for four years and Physics.

Please be aware that the information published will be regularly updated and changed right up to the point when courses begin in September/October. You should check this page frequently to see if there are any changes to dates and options for your intended course.
