Summary

Some children seem to naturally flourish in computing, while others need more support to reach their potential. This CPD aims to give every child an outstanding computing education in primary school, opening up future study and employment routes and closing attainment gaps while building a coalition of learner support of teachers, peers and families. 

You'll consider how cultural and other influences affect outcomes in computing, including the impact on girls and other groups of children. Using a range of sources of evidence you'll examine the relationship between computing and the rest of the curriculum, leading to better integration of this relatively new subject. You'll plan how to raise the knowledge and digital skills of your colleagues, ensuring positive attitudes towards computing in all areas of the curriculum. 

You'll have time and support to consider how your school's computing curriculum would stand up to scrutiny, and how you can provide equitable and inspirational learning for every child in authentic, collaborative and engaging contexts.

This course is delivered as part of the National Centre for Computing Education.
