CAS Tenderfoot is a Google sponsored initiative providing high quality and content rich CPD materials.
Each Unit providing 1 full day or several smaller Sessions of CPD.
The purpose of each Tenderfoot Unit is to equip trainers with material and ideas to support computer science teachers.
Teachers will leave a CAS Tenderfoot session empowered to broaden the outlook of less experienced colleagues, new to computer science.
An important message about CAS Tenderfoot is that it is focussed on developing teachers' deepening subject knowledge. Although the resources used are excellent materials for use in the classroom the key aim is providing greater depth of knowledge for teachers themselves. Developing teachers is the focus, not providing activities for pupils.
The resources are provided in a way that best meets the needs of the providers through unique URLs.
