With a mixture of subject knowledge and pedagogical advice, this course is aimed at both ICT specialists and Primary teaching non-specialists. Expert ‘Master Teachers’ from Computing at School have designed the course to make sure that teachers have the most up-to-date information which they can take into their classrooms and teach great Computing lessons.” ( University of East Anglia)
