Teaching London Computing has developed a series of continuing professional development courses and workshops for teachers of ICT and computing. We welcome others delivering them. Get in touch.
What we offer
As part of our work with the Mayor Of London, TechPathways, a collaboration of London Connected Learning Centre and Queen Mary University of London we provide a range of breath and depth CPD courses.
London CLC are delivering depth modules and Queen Mary is developing the depth courses.
Further potential courses will be on Animation, Digital Art and Design, Game Design and Development for iMedia, Using Google in Secondary Classrooms, Industry volunteer training, Geographical Information Systems and others to be announced.
If you are an industry volunteer and are interested in being involved in the networks depth course further details are here.
As part of our work as the CAS London Regional Centre (run jointly between King’s College London and Queen Mary University of London) we offered a range of short twilight CPD courses for Computer Science teachers and have made the course material publicly available.
For those newer to teaching Computing we have a ‘beginners’ KS3 level course, a course for those getting ready to ‘Teach GCSE Computer Science’ and three courses for those who’ll ‘Teach A Level Computer Science’ focusing on different aspects of the syllabus.
These include programming subject knowledge (we use Python) and pedagogy (how best to introduce the concepts in your classroom). There is also a module in Computing Education which is part of the King’s MA course.
Our previous courses were
1. OOP – Object-Oriented Programming
2. A2 Projects with Databases & Python
3. Teach Algorithms and Data Structures to A-Level using Python
