Implementing the Teach Computing Curriculum in your school
This course aims to support teachers and subject leads in providing the best computing experience for their pupils using the Teach Computing Curriculum. It will guide leaders through the Teach Computing Curriculum’s design and structure, exploring how it can be implemented within an individual school’s setting. There will be a focus on the content children will need to learn, skills they will need to access this and how these are progressed within the curriculum. It will consider the starting point of schools and how best they can include the Teach Computing Curriculum resources to teach computing effectively, troubleshooting any issues that they may have. It will also support subject leads in getting to grips with content, software, and approaches to enable them to effectively deliver the curriculum within their own school.
