With funding from Google’s Digital Garage, we are looking to offer free training on the computing curriculum for 200 teachers in the Manchester area over the next few months, and we need your help.
The computing curriculum came into effect in England in September 2014, and teachers are now expected to teach computer science to children from ages 5 – 11 years old.
However, many teachers feel they have not had sufficient programming experience or training. Our goal is to train teachers, so that they feel confident and excited about delivering the new computing curriculum. Informed and inspiring teachers help develop great students who have computational thinking skills and have a thorough understanding of how technology works.
We are therefore looking for volunteers who understand and are passionate about computer science, and who want to share their knowledge with local teachers. If this sounds of interest, we’d live to invite you to join us on 6th February 2016, 9.30am – 5.30pm in central Manchester for a workshop which will provide you with support and advice to help you you run our teacher training sessions.
