Teaching Python
Training Courses

These training sessions will not only teach you how to program in Python but more importantly HOW TO TEACH PROGRAMMING effectively to your classes.

 

We look at common errors pupils make and how to solve them, common mistakes teachers make when teaching programming and how to avoid them and 5 teaching techniques you can use in your classroom straight away.

 

You are taught how to program in Python from the very basics all the way to confidently using sub programs (functions and procedures), using simple lists and 2D lists, reading and writing to external files and using SQL statements to import specific data from an external database.

 

These courses are run on Saturdays to avoid most teachers having to write cover lessons for a mid-week training event and include a comprehensive set of course notes and electronic copies of all of the programs used in the course. Book your space now to avoid missing out, as space is limited.

 

“This course has massively improved my confidence.  Nichola was great at giving time to help individuals with tasks.  This allowed me to ask questions and discuss problems.  I would strongly recommend this course to all who struggle with Python.”
