FREE Accredited CPD Opportunity for Teachers across Wales 2018!

Published on 10 July 2018

Technocamps is once again offering a fantastic, unique opportunity to teachers from both primary and secondary schools across Wales; training towards the accredited QCF-Level 3 Certificate in Computing for Teachers, commencing in the Autumn Term 2018. Technocamps is offering this qualification absolutely FREE to teachers and schools.

This qualification provides teachers with a wealth of content and pedagogical knowledge to enable and enhance the delivery of the Digital Competence Framework, Computer Science National Curriculum and (for secondary school teachers) the new GCSE and A Level specifications in computer science. The course will be delivered in engaging and hands-on sessions by experienced Technocamps Delivery Officers with the course split over 18 full day sessions throughout the school year. 

The Certificate comprises of four units which cover a range of topics from programming to theory. The recommended guided learning hours for each unit is 30 hours. Assessment for each unit will require teachers to produce a detailed electronic scheme of work and learning resources to support the delivery of a series of more than four to six lessons for that unit which demonstrates the teacher's understanding of how to deliver its content in an engaging way in the classroom. This will be the third year we have run this programme, with 30 teachers successfully completing the course with us. 

We have had two cohorts complete the course over the past three years and currently have a third finishing the course this year. All of the teachers reported that it has had a significant impact on themselves, their schools, but particularly their pupils. You can read more about the second cohort's success here. You can find out more about our first cohort here.
