- Q&A - All
The world is being transformed by rapid digitisation and our schools and teachers play a vital role in continuing to deliver that change. However, since the introduction of computing to the national curriculum in 2014, the subject knowledge enhancement course has only been available to those who already graduated in the field of study.
Join us for an online workshop, where we'll be delving into the Teachers Teaching Tech Programme, you'll get to hear from the online tutors first-hand and the opportunity to ask your most pressing questions. We'll also be delving into a demo of the course and attendees will receive a link to a taster demo to give you an idea on what you can expect on-programme.
Who it's for:
This programme is open to everyone looking to boost their knowledge in Python and teach programming at GCSE /IGCSE standard, including:
- Aspiring teachers
- College lecturers
- Anyone with a genuine interest in developing their skills in Python
