Prioritise your professional development

This autumn, begin your computing journey, develop your understanding of a specific topic, or improve your pedagogical practice. With our flexible courses, you can choose how and when to engage in professional development, via face to face, online, or live remote training.

Our courses are free or low cost to teachers in state-funded schools in England, with generous bursaries available for our remote and face to face CPD to help free you up to attend.

Plus, make the most of your CPD engagement by enrolling on one of our nationally recognised certificates. Our qualifications can help you develop your primary teaching, subject knowledge or secondary practice, and will equip you with the confidence to successfully teach computing.
