This two day CPD course is aimed at Computer Science teachers. This comprehensive course teaches computational thinking and programming concepts suitable for GCSE Computer Science or for simply introducing programming to your classroom. There are no course pre-requisites apart from the ability to use a computer.
No prior knowledge of programming is assumed, in a friendly supportive class, this course will gently introduce you to the concepts, skills and techniques required to be a programmer and to teach programming. The course also includes tips on delivering programming courses, differential learning, peer evaluation techniques and ideas for projects. The course includes “how to write a controlled assessment sized project”, list handling, file handling, regular expressions, libraries and more.
This is very much a hands on course suitable for teachers who have never written a line of code before and also for teachers who have already been teaching python for a year or three! Course attendees will leave the course ready to confidently start teaching Python in the classroom straight away. You will have a plan for teaching Python to GCSE students and have a wealth of knowledge, skills and resources to back up your teaching and support your learners; including around 80 programs written in Python. This course is suitable for all current exam boards.
The course is delivered by David Batty, who has 25 years of classroom experience teaching computing, and has been a programmer for 35 years. David delivers courses for the AQA, Westminster Briefing, Code College and other organisations as required. He is the UK's busiest IT teacher trainer having delivered over 100 in-school programming courses to teachers in the past year alone.
