Description This course is designed for ICT coordinators who are new to coordinating this subject or coordinators who wish more support during the new changes to the computing curriculum. After the first day participants will be able to implement initial ideas and action plans. They will then return in the second session so that these plans can be developed. Participants will be able to communicate between sessions with the trainer so that on the second day, all objectives set will be relevant to the returning co-ordinators. Initial areas to be covered will include relevant teaching ideas, software purchasing and general procurement issues. They will develop their understanding on how to Link IT to other subject areas and ideas on how to enthuse reluctant colleagues. As with all our courses suitable technology resources will be provided which can be used back in school.
