Support for ITE providers

We offer a programme of expertise to help you provide your trainees with everything they need to deliver excellent teaching of computing.

The high-quality support we offer will enhance and complement your own programme, giving your trainees the confidence, skills and knowledge for the classroom, aligned to the ITE Core Framework.

Trainees can then continue to benefit from our support, providing them with meaningful development and progression in their NQT and RQT years and throughout their teaching careers.

We can work with you to identify the courses or pathways that will complement or replace your subject knowledge-based provision.

Supporting the subject knowledge of your September intake

The KS3 and GCSE Computer Science subject knowledge certificate is available to trainees with both conditional and unconditional offers. It offers synchronous and asynchronous courses allowing participants to learn at their own pace putting them in the best possible position to arrive in September with sound subject knowledge.

Funding

Courses are free to attend for trainees and teachers working in state-funded education. For newly qualified teachers, subsidies are also available to support participation. Find out more.

STEM Community

The STEM Community is a forum in which like-minded professionals can share ideas, practices and resources. The New to Secondary Computing group caters for teachers joining the profession or teaching computing for the first time.


Primary support

We offer training and resources to help trainees enrich their understanding of what outstanding teaching of computing looks like. Our introduction to primary computing course is a great option for trainees to take during their training.
