Session title:

A critical review of subject mastery recruitment initiatives – is this supporting inclusivity & social justice for all?

Abstract/brief summary:

This session aims to share a critical policy analysis of the subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) course offered to prospective science teacher trainees. To what extent this supports teachers' identity early in their career and the implications this has on inclusivity and social justice for all. With persistent shortage of teachers for some subjects in schools and the current pandemic climate, this may have further exacerbated social inequality. Arguments to support more complementary trajectories are highlighted to help close the gap.
