Overview of the programme
This part-time course is designed for teachers of GCSE or A-level computing/computer science. You will gain a firm foundation in the principles of object-oriented programming (software development), design and testing, understanding the role of database systems in information management as well as the theoretical and practical issues that influence the design and implementation of database management, systems and languages, and emerging computing technologies.
This practical course will develop your methods in a number of areas, whilst key skills and techniques of computational thinking and problem-solving are emphasised throughout. You'll also investigate novel application areas and environments where computing can be potentially beneficial.
This programme is run on the Wrexham campus on an intensive block basis, during half-terms and holidays, for 15 days in total.
