Summary

This course is delivered as part of the National Centre for Computing Education, and forms part of the Computer Science Accelerator programme.

Computer programs are written in a language that humans understand, but what about the computer itself? Every piece of software, and the instructions and data it contains, is made up of 1’s and 0’s, pushed around the parts of a computer system.

This course opens the box, looking at the components of a computer, what they do and how they work together in computer systems. You’ll learn about the processor that sits at the centre, as well as memory, storage and the other key pieces of hardware.

Mapped closely to the specifications of GCSE computer science, the course will provide you with deepened knowledge and confidence to equip your students with for their exams.
