‘Back to school’ training sessions offered to support delivery of new computing curriculum

The teaching support organisation Computing at Schools (CAS) is to hold a series of “back to school” training sessions to help teachers prepare for the new computing curriculum in September.

The sessions will offer support to help tackle the coding and computer science elements of the new curriculum.

Funded by a £334,000 investment from Microsoft, the aim is to hold 2,500 local events using the existing CAS network of best practice hubs.

The programme has been dubbed “Countdown to Computing” and will offer both primary and secondary courses as well as supporting classroom resources designed to help teachers during the first term of the new curriculum.

The target is to deliver training and resources for around one in every five primary school teachers and for at least three specialist teachers in every secondary school.
