Raising Attainment in Computing

We live in a computer-based world. It is absolutely vital that our children understand how computers work, how to use them, and how to stay safe around them. This full-day training course will look at all aspects of the computer curriculum, as well as how to use technology to support and inspire learning across the curriculum.

  • Requirements and misconceptions in the national curriculum for computing
  • The difference between computer science and digital literacy and how children can achieve high standards in both
  • Ways to use computers and computing in other subjects

About this course

The 2014 Curriculum renamed “ICT” as “Computing” and shifted the emphasis considerably towards the programming aspects of computer science. One negative of this otherwise-welcome change was a drop in the time spent using and applying computer software for research, presentation and other skills. This full-day course, part of our Beyond the Core portfolio, explores ways to raise standards in both of those areas. The training will:

  • Increase your confidence in programming concepts and terminology
  • Offer easy-to-implement strategies and activities to improve teaching and learning
  • Explore computing in the context of “cultural capital” and Ofsted’s new Inspection Framework
  • Enable your school to continue its journey towards excellence.

Audience:

  • Class teachers and teaching assistants (all years)
  • Computing coordinators, curriculum leads
  • Senior leadership

COVID-19 update:

Please note that, until the end of May 2020, our CPD courses will be delivered via live webinar instead of at the venues stated below. This gives teachers and leaders the ability to interact with the trainer and course without the need to attend the venue. 

Even better, if we live-stream your course, a recording of the course will be available for you to view for one month after the course date, meaning you can enjoy the course anywhere, any time, even if your plans change at short notice. 

From June 2020, if government and health/safety recommendations mean that we're unable to operate our CPD courses at the venues below, we will commit to either providing the training by live webinar stream or giving you the choice to reschedule to a later date at no additional charge.

Venue:

At TT Education we aim to provide you with the outstanding training experience you deserve, from the fantastic resources you receive to the beautiful venues we hold our training in, with lunch and refreshments included.

Please note that the exact venues used in each town or city are subject to change. We will send a Welcome Email approximately 7 days before the date of the course, confirming the venue.
