Computing Coordinators

Date(s): London: TBA | Birmingham: TBA

Computing coordinators both experienced and new to this role will find this course very useful. The course is run over two days.

How to assess without using levels, what OFSTED will be looking for and good procurement of both software and hardware are some areas that will be covered.

Computing coordinators will be offered personalised support. They will be shown how to develop their own vision and action plans. Participants will go on to develop and implement these plans back in school. They will then return in the second session to organise these and tackle any problems that they didn’t foresee in the first session.

Participants will be able to communicate between sessions with the trainer so that on the second day, all objectives set will be relevant to the returning coordinators.  Furthermore, during the two day programme they will develop their understanding on how to link computing to other subject areas as well as how to enthuse and support reluctant colleagues.

As with all our courses suitable technology resources will be provided which can be used back in school.
