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.

Foundation knowledge of computer science for KS3 and GCSE

The sessions within this course are designed to give you the subject knowledge around key topics such as algorithms, data representation, hardware and programming, whilst also exploring useful and engaging strategies for delivering this content in the classroom.

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.

Supporting GCSE computer science students at grades 1-3

This course is designed to support your understanding of GCSE grades 1 – 3 by exploring the key terminology used in computer science and how to make this accessible to students; identifying the mathematical skills required and how to make them accessible to students, working towards grades 1 – 3; learn about knowledge and recall strategies and how to embed these within your teaching; and how to use assessment and feedback to support student progress.
