They can write their own programs to solve problems or develop new ideas. This course is for children between 5 and 11 years old. It will give you confidence in teaching programming. You'll learn programming concepts and also explore strategies to assist your students.

This course will teach you the fundamental concepts of programming, including sequence, repetition, selection and variables. The course will introduce you to a variety of programming languages that are suitable for young people. You will also learn how to modify and create Scratch programs using your new knowledge. This course will also teach you about program design. All stages of program development are covered, from the initial idea to the execution of code. You will be able create and code your own Scratch programs by the end of this course. This course aligns with the Teach Computing Curriculum (TCC), which is a free resource that contains all you need to teach computing. This course will include several activities from TCC.
