The course is aimed at teachers with a responsibility for computing. It will be delivered by IBM professionals alongside teachers from the award winning London Connected Learning Centre. The course will help teachers to:

  • explore effective ways to support colleagues in teaching computing
  • better understand the computing attainment targets
  • get to grips with assessment and progression
  • develop imaginative and creative ways to embed computing across the curriculum

The programme will explore the principles of computational thinking, digital literacy, online safety and information systems within real world contexts, including IBM’s commercial and social programmes. All those taking part in the summer school will be offered an IBM mentor to provide ongoing support.

What teachers say about the course:

IBM’s involvement gave me a wider context which enabled me to develop my thinking. Having London CLC underpinning it, gave me a security blanket to go and try new things, tell me it was ok and hold my hand.’ Computing Subject Lead, Merton Park Primary
