Exploring the Role of Computing/ICT Subject Leadership
Computing and ICT are fundamental to the world we live and learn in, yet pupils can easily become passive consumers of these tools rather than inquisitive comprehenders of ‘how’ and ‘why’ they work as they do. The Computing Subject Leader plays a key role in embedding the teaching of Computing across the curriculum to improve outcomes for all learners. This course will equip Computing Subject Leaders with skills and strategies to lead with confidence. We will begin by identifying how to evaluate current practice, using a range of strategies, and then consider how to develop an action plan, lead improvement and monitor the impact on learning for all pupils. These are vital steps supporting leaders to articulate their understanding of the 3 'i's [intent, implementation, impact]. Delegates will become more familiar with ‘what works well’ drawing on the course leader’s extensive experience of supporting Computing Subject Leaders in Derbyshire schools. Quotes from a previous course: “A fantastic course! The course leaders were approachable, friendly and the information given was invaluable.” “As usual, the energy and humour of the presenters was inspiring and has given much ‘food for thought’.” “Information of documents that can be used and implemented into school straight away.” “Great course, bespoke to help us succeed.” “Fab! Thank you. I’m excited to get back to school and get on with implementing things!” You may also be interested in: Developing and implementing a scheme of work for Computing using the Wokingham Computing Scheme of Work.
