Can you help us get Newcastle coding?

With funding from a corporate sponsor, we are looking to offer free training on the computing curriculum for 200 teachers in the Newcastle area over the next few months, and we need your help.

The computing curriculum came into effect in England in September 2014, and teachers are now expected to teach computer science to children from ages 5 – 11 years old.  However, many teachers feel they have not had sufficient programming experience or training. Our goal is to train teachers, so that they feel confident and excited about delivering the new computing curriculum. Informed and inspiring teachers help develop great students who have computational thinking skills and have a thorough understanding of how technology works.

We are looking for volunteers who understand and are passionate about computer science, and who want to share their knowledge with local teachers. If this sounds of interest, we’d love to invite you to join us on May 14th, 9am – 4pm at Newcastle City Library for a workshop which will provide you with support and advice to help you run our teacher training sessions.
