This course is for ICT teachers who would like to prepare to teach GCSE Computing or Computer Science. It covers the theory you would need to teach at GCSE as well as Python programming. The course is 10 weeks long (excludes half-term 18-22 February) and runs for 2 and a half hours on a Tuesday evening. This will be the fifth time we have offered this course and it has received very positive recommentations from teachers who have previously attended.
