    TRAINER

    Carol Murray

    I have been a teacher of ICT and then computing in an 11-18 school for over 15 years, as an AST and SSAT lead practitioner. I am currently one of the regional coordinators of the CAS Regional Centre North West (Manchester) based at The University of Manchester.

    About Tenderfoot™: The purpose of Tenderfoot courses is to broaden the outlook of teachers new to computing. The intention is to provide a buffet of resources on which teachers can draw, to enrich their computing lessons, at the same time of meeting the key aim: providing a greater depth of knowledge for teachers themselves.

    All materials and resources used on this course will be made available to all delegates after the course.
