Two routes: Guided and Independent

Two routes: Guided and Independent

Once enrolled every teacher will be given a login to the Certificate system, and guidance on how to assemble and present their evidence. Teachers will be allocated to an e-assessor for individualised feedback.

Guided route

With this option (new for this academic year) you enrol for the Certificate but also attend online courses to guide you towards completing the work.

  • You attend one course for Part 2 (which is either in Scratch or Python) and one course for Part 3. The two courses fulfill your requirement for Part 1.
  • You then submit the projects worked on during the courses for your Part 2 and Part 3 projects, and write up your reflections on the courses for your Part 1.
  • You pay for the Certificate (£300 ) + Part 2 online ( £100) and Part 3 online (£60).

If you wish you may choose to take only one of the Part 2 and Part 3 courses if you feel confident in one of these areas.

Independent route

With this route, you enrol for the Certificate, are allocated to an e-assessor, and use the resources on the VLE and your skills from other CPD that you have attended, to complete and submit your evidence for all three parts.
