Primary INSET : Computer says yes! Bringing Computing to life


Are you confident that the computing curriculum is being well delivered across the school, or would like ideas on how to bring a ‘wow’ to computing lessons? Are all teachers working together to deliver a consistent, well planned curriculum, and has computing come to life and captured your pupil’s imaginations? It is a sad fact that for many schools the introduction of the new curriculum has been patchy and gaps in teachers understanding have meant that the great potential of this exciting new subject has not been realised.

This course is designed to address this and bring computing to life in your school. It presents a full understanding of the computing concepts and knowledge required to confidently deliver the curriculum. It covers the key concepts, ways to bring the subject to life and where to find essential resources to engage and inspire pupils across the primary age range.

Delivered in house with your resources and your familiar computing systems it gives a practical and relevant way to engage, enthuse and inspire teachers to bring this subject to life.
