    Abstract

    Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses aim to provide sufficient subject knowledge; in shortage subject areas such as mathematics and science, with the intention of enabling those who attend them, subsequently to, undertake initial teacher training and to go on to become teachers in secondary schools.
    This paper, which examines the learning experience of a group of SKE participants, assesses whether this added significantly to their subject knowledge and helped prepare them for work in the classroom, comparing this outcome with conventional teacher trainees who had not undertaken such a course.
