Experience level

Teacher CPD events are designed to help A level Computer Science teachers build their confidence and understanding of the subject. At each event, you’ll learn about a computer science concept in depth, and you can easily adapt what you learn for use in the classroom with your students. We’ll also show you how to use the teacher functions on the Isaac Computer Science platform.
