This two-year part-time evening course is aimed at post-primary teachers who require the relevant Computer Science skills to teach the Leaving Certificate Computer Science curriculum, competently and confidently.
It is aimed at educators, but Level 8 graduates from non-computing disciplines are welcome to enrol, as the programme provides a strong foundation in the principles of Computer Science. It offers a focus on integrative and innovative approaches to computer science principles for education exploration informed by national and international developments.
The two-year programme will allow for deeper immersion in content and facilitate teachers to undertake the course outside of their teaching day. The course is run collaboratively between DkIT and IT Tralee.
Who Should Apply?
This programme is primarily created for current teachers that are interested to prepare for teaching the Leaving Cert Computer Science course. Teaching Council accreditation has to be obtained on an individual basis.
