Previous courses
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
