Develop an evidence-informed approach to education recovery over a sustained period, securing the computing education of young people following a period of great disruption.


Topics covered:

Teaching and curriculum – consider the impact of disruption on learning and long term recall, and strategies to overcome this. Evaluate the curriculum, and core subject knowledge for progression, developing informed plans for curriculum implementation and assessment. Focus efforts on the approaches most likely to benefit students and lead to lasting improvement and engagement.

Targeted subject knowledge support – reflect upon the range of classroom approaches and resources at your disposal, with guidance to implement those that best meet the needs of your students. Ensure that all students, including those with SEND, and those transitioning between key stages, receive the support they need to succeed. Skilfully use assessment to target and evaluate interventions to maximise the return on your effort.

Wider strategies – support the academic, emotional and social development of young people through computing lessons and innovative approaches to homework. Engage with parents to maximise progress in partnership. Enrich the computing curriculum, and raise aspiration in computing. Consider the needs of your own school context, and plan to successfully support the education recovery of your students.
