Computer Science GCSE Training from AQA and IT Skillsman
The AQA GCSE Computer Science course is supported by Microsoft and aligned with the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications. AQA is a Microsoft Premier Qualification Partner.
How this will benefit teachers?
Because of the close alignment between the GCSE and MTA, there are shared resources for teachers, and extra benefits for students.
Why IT Skillsman?
IT Skillsman is delivering a series of courses to contribute to the skills development of teachers delivering the Computer Science GCSE. The 10 courses will be by subscription, with this first no-cost introductory “Taster” course as a vehicle for providing information about the subscription courses and to provide signposting to no-cost or lo-cost support materials. IT Skillsman is appointed as a Microsoft Academy Service Partner (MASP) and delivers programmes of learning.
IT Skillsman ran a 'Taster Session' web conference on 17 July 2012 that gave details of learning resources and introduced the subscription course that will begin in October 2012. The webconf was recorded and you can view it using the following link:
