Gone are the days of teaching young people to use office suites to make presentations and word process letters.

Computer programming is now being taught in secondary schools with a new curriculum, so it’s an exciting time to teach computing. With a 1st or 2:1, graduates could also get a tax-free bursary from the British Computing Society to train.*

The University of Roehampton’s secondary Computing PGCE programme is a new, bespoke postgraduate pathway to Qualified Teaching Status. Trainees will benefit from tutelage under Miles Berry, Senior Lecturer and Subject Leader - ICT Education at Roehampton and respected author, academic and consultant.

CS students who demonstrate not only great computing knowledge and skills but have what it takes to pass on this passion to others and inspire a new generation of coders and computer scientists can attend a PGCE Open Day to meet staff and see the campus - register today.

Furthermore, if you have any questions about the programme, please do not hesitate to contact Miles at M.Berry@roehampton.ac.uk or +44(0) 20 8392 3241 .
