One Week Python Programming Course to A level

We are running a one week Python Programming Boot Camp Course which starts from the very beginning and goes all the way up to meeting the demands of the A level Computer Science course. There will be 2 workshops running in this week one aimed at beginners and the other aimed at intermediate and more advanced programmers. The course has been designed not only to teach the fundamental of programming but also to focus on how this can be delivered in the classroom. One Week Python Programming Boot Camp Course
