Dear primary colleagues, there are still spaces left on the NCCE ‘Programming and Algorithms in Primary Computing’ course that Park House Computing Hub are hosting, before the NCCE review their remote learning process in May. It is unknown what the remote learning will look like after the end of April.
I’m delivering this one day course in the second week of the Easter Holidays, and splitting it into 4 x 2 hour sessions (across Tuesday 14th and the Friday 17th, 10am -12, then 1pm – 3pm). All the other courses I’m running in April are fully booked, so please hurry!
The course is FREE for any primary school teacher, teaching in a state school in England. Simply book on using the link at the bottom of this page.
This is the same course I ran last week with 17 delegates, which was a tremendous success. Here are some testimonials:
I have thoroughly enjoyed this morning’s training. Easy to follow and great trainer. Because I haven’t used scratch before I found it hard to do the activities myself but it was useful being able to watch you do them step by step.Computing subject lead on Programming and Algorithms in Primary Computing course, facilitated by Phil Wickins
Thank you Phil! I’ve never learnt through remote access before but have enjoyed it so much. I now need to ‘play’ with Scratch and learn for myself. You have gone above and beyond to answer questions and provide support for us and share your valuable resources. Keep safe and look after you and your family.Assistant Head Teacher on Programming and Algorithms in Primary Computing course, facilitated by Phil Wickins
Feeling much more confident to teach selection and variables. I think the practical classroom activities will prove really useful to introduce algorithms and programming within my own class. As an NQT this is something that I will take forward and implement in my classroom as soon as possible 🙂NQT on Programming and Algorithms in Primary Computing course, facilitated by Phil Wickins
Course details and booking is below. I hope to see you there on Tuesday!!
