Event description

Description

Please join us for ‘Getting Started with Coding’ Teacher Training. This training is open to librarians, in-service and pre-service teachers across all sectors. By the end of this training, you will be all ready to get your classroom coding, or even start your own Code Club at school.

The project-based learning completed on this day can be completed in Scratch, Scratch Jr. or Python depending on the attendee's experience and age of students taught.

Please register just for yourself and encourage attending colleagues to register independently. In the case of unexpected absence, all registering teachers are asked to nominate an alternate attendee. Contact us anytime with any questions!

As part of the registration process, you are asked to email through, or bring a Letter of Nomination from your Principal or Line Manager.
