Python programming constructs: sequencing, selection & iteration for AQA specification

Take your first steps to becoming a competent teacher of Python programming; this CPD will develop your foundational knowledge around the Python language. This course references the AQA 8525 9-1 GCSE Computer Science specification and the pseudocode representation that will be used in exams.

Computer processors and instruction sets

Explore the core of a modern computer - the processor. Learn how the instructions that humans write in computer programs are translated into machine code that the computer can process. Compare the differences between high-level and low-level programming languages, and how these can used in the classroom.
