Our modules

Our objective is that all teachers feel more confident about teaching the computing curriculum. The sessions are aimed at teachers who want a comprehensive understanding of the computing curriculum.

The sessions are delivered in school, as INSET or twilight sessions. We offer three modules, each are 2 hours long. Our sessions are fun, engaging and designed to provide teachers with practical activities and engaging resources that develop young people’s understanding of computing.

Robot 1

The Internet and the Web

This session explores networks and the internet. We look at the Web in more detail, including how to code using HTML, and how search engines work.

Robot 2

Computational thinking

This session looks in detail at the new programme of study. We explain core concepts such as algorithms, abstraction and patterns as well as a little programming using floor turtles.

Robot 3

Programming

In this session, we start programming using Scratch and Code Club projects. We look at variables, debugging and iterative development, as well as cross-curricular coding activities.

Bookings

Bookings for the academic year 2015/16 will open in September.

If you would like to enquire about a booking please email hello@codeclubpro.org

Pedagogy

Our materials are written by primary school teachers and experts for primary school teachers. We believe children learn best through doing and making - this philosophy runs through all our materials.

Expertise

Having taught over 30,000 children to code in the UK through Code Clubs, we have a lot of experience in successfully teaching programming to primary school children.

Our Trainers

Our trainers are computer science experts who really care about education. They won’t teach you how to teach though, you’re the experts on that front. They'll help you understand the computer science you’ll need to teach, in the most accessible way.

Not for Profit

As a not for profit, we don't exist to make money - just enough to cover the costs of this training program and help us run Code Club. Ultimately, this means we tend to charge less than other CPD providers.

"As Computing Co-ordinator at the school it was hugely useful to see others explain that it won't be the huge, difficult monster to teach that it might have appeared to be when we first got news of the new curriculum."
