Please note, each Unit has Training Notes for the whole unit and Session Notes for each session and Handouts to support the training activities.

There is an Introduction to Tenderfoot that provides a 90 minute training session drawing out curriculum concepts from the programming and algorithm units. If you have experienced an introduction session and feel that it would be useful presentation to a hub or less formal delivery, then please email Tenderfoot@computingatschool.org.uk. The Trainer’s Notes are available.
