#Tech Teach

Teacher Training


Here at CodezAcademy we are an independent training provider where we offer teacher training in coding and technology to those teachers feeling abit out of touch with one of the fastest and ever growing tech industry. The particular areas we focus on are Web-Development, Graphic Design, and the use of python based Scratch systems such as Tynker. We have developed the training to apply to the National Curriculum at Key stages 2 and 3 ensuring that you are learning skills that are applicable to your classroom as well as skills that compliment the curriculum and giving you a broader understanding of the topics so you feel completely comfortable safe in the knowledge that you have the necessary skills to share with your students.

Educational Stage


Primary

At Primary School level, Being able to choose the right words and explanations of coding and working with computers can be rather difficult with what may seem to be a whole new language of abbreviations and Syntax, That's where we can help out offering training on how to work around this so the student can get the best possible start to their digital lifestyles. With the new Digital Competency Framework a whole new set of compulsory skills to be taught in school are going to be introduced so get prepared today.

For Primary School Teachers we will tailor the course to where the skills gap in your school falls, So please get in touch and have a chat to discuss where you need improvement or just to keep up to date with the ever changing Digital Environment.

At Secondary school level, With an ever increasing digital footprint on todays young learners its easy to see that the young learners can sometimes seem to know more then the average teacher as they use technology every single day.
