  • COVID-19 and Spring term training

    All our Spring term training will now be delivered virtually and a number of courses are available to book as after-school sessions. We are continuing to monitor government guidance and to work closely with venues so that we can resume centre based training as soon as it is safe to do so.

    To help make it clearer, our courses are now identified on the Learning Zone as follows:

    • Webinar - where sessions are now all virtual.
    • Blended - where the course is now a mixture of virtual and face to face training (where further sessions are later in the year and we may be able to resume venue based training)
    • No categorisation - where sessions are currently still planned as a venue based delivery 

    Should you have any queries regarding spring term training courses please contact htlc.courses@hants.gov.uk.

      Information Technology Progression, Assessment and Pedagogy (Webinar) – 5 February 2021

      Keyword search: Technology Progression

      This course really digs into Information Technology in primary schools and is designed to help you design your own curriculum.  Although there is an overlap of subject material with the primary KS1 & KS2 NCCE courses it does not replicate material.

      This course looks in more detail at skills progression and the connections between different areas of IT which often get missed when computing leads are planning IT schemes of work. We also explore different ways of thinking about IT which can inform what IT schools choose to teach. We also focus on manageable ways of assessing IT.
