A CPD course for ICT teachers of all abilities, this will equip you with the skills and confidence to teach, in an interesting and engaging way, the GCSE CS curriculum, including the programming content and skills required for approaching examination questions as well as the non-examination assessment.


Day 1 - GCSE overview and understanding programming
Overview of the GCSE concepts and assessment criteria
Variable assignment, data types, selection, and iteration
Creating user interfaces, validation, formatted output
Use of functions with global and local variables

Day 2 - Advanced Skills: identifying the key characteristics of student success at GCSE
Advanced Python: file writing, list manipulation, string slicing and dictionaries

Delegates will each work at a computer and receive collective and individual tuition throughout the day. This is a practical training course that will help you teach GCSE computing.

There are two teachers on this course, both of whom have extensive experience of teaching Computer Science at GCSE and A Level. They are extensively involved with a major examinations board, providing resources, training, assessment and examinations.
