New to teaching A-level computer science CY202


Summary

The step-up to A-level Computer Science is significant – for students and teachers alike. This course is aimed at teachers new or relatively new to teaching A-level Computer Science.

It will improve subject knowledge; provide experience in practical and investigative activities including a range of programming challenges; and deepen understanding of underlying concepts that flow from earlier stages of learning as well as those that appear for the first time at A-level. The course will help you, too, to develop strong mental models of computer science concepts with your students, providing them with a basis for better attainment.
