QuickStart Computing Toolkit

The CAS QuickStart project is developing Computing CPD toolkits to provide primary and secondary teachers with the resources necessary to successfully run a Computing CPD course for their colleagues.. Funded by the Department for Education and Microsoft, these resources are free to all teachers. 

We currently have hard copies of the Primary toolkit available and ready to order, the Secondary resources are being distributed through the CAS Master Teacher network. Electronic versions of both the Primary and Secondary toolkits can be downloaded for free from the BCS website, please click here for further information.

Within the 65 page Primary toolkit you will find all the support you and your colleagues need to plan, teach and assess your computing curriculum with confidence and success. Complete with a DVD containing all of the resources, the toolkit includes:

  • Computing subject knowledge information and videos
  • Guidelines and PowerPoint presentations to help you run tailored CPD sessions in your school or cluster
  • Support for planning a scheme of work
  • Tried and tested ideas for successful computing lessons
  • Assessment and progression support
  • An online interactive skills and knowledge audit tool

Please be advised that we are limiting the order to one copy per school.
