As you learn how to integrate the TCC into your own curriculum to fill any gaps, you’ll discover how it can support you in your computing teaching.

Utilise the full range of teaching resources available to you

You’ll develop an assessment strategy that combines the TCC’s assessment materials with your school’s own system, identify how formative assessment can aid your pedagogy, and see how to modify resources to suit the needs of learners in your school.

Create a computing curriculum that suits you

Studying with computing experts at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, you’ll learn how to create a high-quality curriculum for your computing classes, in a way that fits your setting and with a minimal workload.

This course would appeal to all computing teachers at schools teaching 11-16-year-olds, from those that are newly qualified to heads of department.
