School Improvement & Development Conference 2023: Book your early-bird place

Teacher Support Programme in Computing

Programming and computer science are often stressful areas in a primary teacher’s workload, because very few of us were taught anything like this when we were at school! This three-part training course aims to relieve that anxiety by providing you with a wide range of ideas and support, helping you to meet the high expectations of a 21st century computing curriculum.

  • Ensure that your computing lessons are ambitious and well sequenced
  • Explore assessment methods that are meaningful and effective
  • Practical ideas for exciting and engaging lessons in computing and ICT
  • Three training sessions that each support half a day of reflection and development

About this course

This three-part programme supports primary practitioners to improve their teaching of computing. Each session is about two hours long but supports half a day of reflection and development.

Session 1 looks at what we choose to teach:

  • Creating a strong rationale to engage children in each bit of learning
  • How can we overcome the barriers to a quality computing curriculum
  • What should we include in the ‘perfect’ computing lesson?

Session 2 aims to help teachers develop their subject knowledge in computing:

  • Programming and coding
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Project-based learning within a computing curriculum

Session 3 explores how we teach computing, and how we establish and evidence impact:

  • Using computers across the curriculum
  • Assessment approaches that don’t divert from the real substance of learning
  • eSafety and ‘cultural capital’
