Free Certified CPD Programme for Primary School Teachers

Megan ChickEvent, News, News and Events

We are offering a free 10-session CPD programme for primary school teachers with the aim of improving knowledge of Computer Science and Computational Thinking, and applying these skills in the classroom and across the school.

Following the success of the virtual training sessions we offered primary school teachers during the lockdown period, we are pleased to be able to offer a full programme of support to you in the Summer term. The sessions also link with the DCF and work across the new AoLEs of the new curriculum.

By participating in the programme, you will gain accreditation as a Technocamps Certified Teacher, and your school will become a Technocamps Certified School status at the level of Bronze, Silver, or Gold.

Awards will be based on the completion of the Technocamps Teacher Training (CPD) programme by individual teachers, and the number of teachers to complete the programme in a school.

The next CPD course will run as follows:
10 x 2 hour sessions
1. 4.30-6.30pm, Monday 5th June
2. 4.30-6.30pm, Wednesday 7th June
3. 4.30-6.30pm, Wednesday 14th June

All participants reported that it has had a significant impact on themselves, their schools and their pupils. Hirwaun Primary School and Sketty Primary School have both achieved Gold accreditation, with Ysgol y Castell, Rhyl earning Silver.
