The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) is funded by the Department for Education and is run by a consortium of STEM Learning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
The NCCE is offering free online courses and bursary-supported face-to-face courses for primary teachers that work in a state-funded school in England.
In Cornwall, this training is delivered through the Cornwall and Plymouth Computing Hub. Contact the Hub at TeachComputing@truro-penwith.ac.uk.
Download the flyers below for details of upcoming training, and details of the bursaries available.
The Hub can also deliver sessions in school, or through clusters or MATs – contact TeachComputing@truro-penwith.ac.uk to discuss further.
Software Cornwall Education Outreach to schools is all about encouraging students to try coding. All around the county there are companies creating code for industry and in the future the students could be the talent that these companies are looking for.
To engage with students the education outreach takes assemblies and provide workshops in school. At the weekends there also the Cornwall Tech Jams held once a month. Software Cornwall are also working with Code Club and STEM Ambassadors to get more Code Clubs running in schools. We can provide some hands on experience for staff and volunteers and also visits to the clubs once set up.
All this outreach is provided free of charge. We source the funding from elsewhere but if you'd like to donate we wouldn't say no!
If you have any questions or would like us to visit your school please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
