QuickStart Computing is a FREE CPD toolkit to help teachers plan, teach and assess the new computing curriculum. Produced by Computing at School (CAS) and funded by the DfE and Microsoft, QuickStart Computing helps teachers develop and run CPD and training sessions in your school and cluster to help all teachers with this brand new subject.
Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said:
"I am delighted that our world leading computing curriculum has got off to such a strong start. Giving young people a solid grounding in computing from an early age is a key part of our plan for education, ensuring they are prepared to succeed in modern Britain. More than 4 million primary school children have already received computing lessons, which I hope will empower and inspire more young people and open their eyes to the exciting opportunities available.
"QuickStart Computing is an important national programme that will help all computing teachers to confidently plan, teach and assess the new computing curriculum. We value the funding that Microsoft has provided and it’s essential that we work in partnership with industry and teacher networks like Computing At School."
It includes a downloadable teacher’s handbook, links to resources, online videos and interactive tools. So, whether you need to understand the basics, assess your knowledge or get inspiring ideas for the classroom, QuickStart Computing can help!
