miniCPD – Controlled Assessment

miniCPD courses are shorter than our full length CPD courses and focus on a particular topic.

“​Thank you very much for organising this CPD day. It is always useful to find out what other schools are doing and to keep my knowledge up to date. I now feel better prepared for September.” Teacher attending our first miniCPD session.

Our one day course ‘Preparing Pupils for Controlled Assessment’ uses Python to program solutions to problems of a similar type to those set in GCSE Controlled Assessments. The aim is to make teachers feel confident about tackling these problems and programming solutions themselves, so that they can pass their knowledge, experience and confidence on to their pupils. Teachers should already have some knowledge of the basics of Python; strings, arithmetic, ‘if statements’ and loops. This is not a course for complete beginners.
