Sketty Primary School become a Gold Technocamps Certified School


Sketty Primary School in Swansea has become the first Gold Technocamps Certified School.

Nine out of Sketty Primary School’s ten Key Stage 2 teachers have now completed the Technocamps Certified Primary CPD training following the Spring Term graduation. To achieve Gold status, 75% of a school’s Key Stage 2 teachers must complete the course, and with 90% completed, Sketty Primary can now boast the achievement.

The school will be certified for two years, until March 2023.

Course leader and Technocamps’ Regional Coordinator for South East Wales, Laura Roberts, said “We are really excited to be able to award Sketty Primary School Technocamps Certified Status. They are the first school to achieve this certification, and have achieved Gold. Ten teachers from Sketty Primary School completed the Primary CPD course which gives them individual Technocamps Certified Teacher status for two academic years and qualifies the school for their Gold certification. The teachers were all dedicated to the 20 hours of training and development, providing examples of how they were implementing their new knowledge and skills in the classroom, as well as sharing good practice with other teachers on the course.

Sketty Primary School Key Stage 2 Teacher, Carly Jackson, said “We are delighted to be the first school to have received the Technocamps Certified Schools Gold Award. The staff have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the course which has greatly upskilled us for delivery of the new Curriculum for Wales. It has had a positive impact on the pupils’ learning already.”  

To achieve Bronze status, 30% of Key Stage 2 teachers (excluding LSAs) must complete the training, and for Silver status, 50% of Key Stage 2 teachers must complete the training. The next Technocamps Primary CPD course will start in September 2021. Keep your eyes peeled for the course details!
