    KS4 Computer Science: Make the move to Computing

    Suitable for: Any teacher expected to deliver Key Stage 4 Computer Science, especially non-specialists who need support in moving from ICT to Computer Science.

    The programme will support all Computer Science teachers regardless of exam board.

    Focus: This online programme of support is an introduction to the theory of Computer Science and practical programming using Python. The online programme consists of ten, two hour Thursday after school sessions.

    Recordings of all sessions will be available 24 hours after each session date. This provides added flexibility should you be unable to take part in every live session.

    Each session is aimed at helping ICT teachers explore relevant topics as they move towards teaching the new GCSE (9-1) Computer Science course. Course content will be relevant to new specifications from all exam boards.

    Sessions will be split into interactive workshops, using practical examples of relevant theories (such as Von Neumann architecture and layered network models) and hands-on programming sessions. By the end of the course you will have created, in Python, a fun to use game that can be used in teaching programming to your students.

    No prior knowledge of Computer Science or computer programming is required.
