Computing Hub Training
Does your School need Computing Support?
We can help your school to transform its computing curriculum, whatever level of support is needed. Working together with the Harris Academy Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub, we can equip and empower your teachers to deliver the computing curriculum in an exciting and engaging way.
Children in your school are increasingly confident in their knowledge of technology. Help your teachers to help them develop this core skill further for the careers of the future. Are you a new Computing Lead? Do all the staff in your school need to gain confidence in teaching basic programming and algorithms? Let us know your needs and we can provide cost effective, quality training at the appropriate level. If the training falls within the school day we can even offer a bursary of £220 to one teacher per school to facilitate cover.
- Teaching and leading key stage 1 computing

Around 12% of 14-16 year olds take GCSE Computer Science. Let us help you to increase that number by expanding and upskilling your teaching team. We have trained many teachers of other disciplines to enable them to deliver computer science up to GCSE level, as well as boosting the skill level of existing computing teachers by giving them the skills to increase students’ engagement and attainment. All NCCE GCSE support is free of charge, while Core training has a minimal cost of £35.

Fees & Bursaries
For state-maintained schools and colleges in England, courses are either FREE or a minimal charge per day of maximum £35. Many courses attract bursaries to cover associated costs (e.g. supply cover), and to remove the financial barriers associated with attending CPD. Full details at: https://teachcomputing.org/bursary
