Trainees and NQTs can bring so much to a computing department, including fresh eyes, new ideas and lots of enthusiasm. One reason why schools don’t take on early careers teachers is the confidence or experience of current mentors in knowing the computing curriculum and the expectations of a computing trainee.
This CPD, aimed at current mentors, outlines the benefits of having computing on the curriculum, attributes of a successful computing mentor, and outlines how to support computing trainees in their subject knowledge and pedagogical approaches to computing.
