Course content

Our SKE Spanish courses are tailored to your individual subject knowledge needs, with the flexibility of studying online for 8, 12, 16 or 20 weeks. They refresh and help improve your existing knowledge of Spanish, enabling you to apply it within the context of your individual role or as part of your wider studies. For example, our SKE Spanish course is perfect if you need to strengthen your subject knowledge to be accepted onto initial teacher training, or simply if you feel that additional learning would be beneficial. Courses are free for those eligible for funding.

The Spanish Subject Knowledge Enhancement course aims, through a blend of self-directed learning and online tutorials, to refresh, consolidate and improve your subject knowledge; develop your language and conversation skills; practise vocabulary and grammar; promote independent learning, improve meta-cognitive skills and develop your ability to identify and address your own learning needs.

The course is designed to meet your subject knowledge needs. Study is flexible and can fit around your lifestyle and commitments.

The course is designed for:

  • Pre-Initial Teacher Training (ITT) applicants who need to strengthen their existing subject knowledge.
  • Anyone who would like to improve their subject knowledge.
