Computing for Educators

Is this course for me?

This unique course allows educators to engage with material that will provide them with confidence and technical skills to deliver ICT in schools for the 21st Century. The certificates have been carefully crafted to ensure that educators will be given opportunity to gain proficiency and to derive tangible elements for their own classrooms.

Each certificate is worth 10 ECT credits and is at level 8. Educators can take as many or as few of the certificates are they wish but completing 6 certificates will enable the participant to convert their 60 credits into a Higher Diploma in Computing for Educators.
