Bradford Council's Curriculum Innovation consultants Tim Bleazard and Paul Scott are Subject Matter Experts working for the NCCE. If you would like to take advantage of this free support please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See below for details of how the three and a half hours is typically used.
The first part of the session is used for writing an action plan, including:
- An overview of the school’s current position looking at curriculum, devices, remote learning platform, staff confidence and experience in teaching Computing
- Identifying priorities for the development of Computing in school
We also share what the NCCE can provide:
- The NCCE training offer including bursaries, face-to-face, remote and online learning, and shorter training sessions
- The NCCE curriculum including progression, assessment, glossary and resources explaining pedagogy. Please note that the school does not have to follow the NCCE curriculum for the support to be effective
- A look at other free resources available to schools for teaching Digital Literacy and Computer Science including early years.
- Sharing information about nationally recognised qualifications such as the Primary Certificate in Computing and the Computing Quality Framework.
The rest of the time can be used to help the school work toward the priorities identified in the action plan.
