The course provides five short activities that introduce pupils to coding using Python. If they have never coded before, these activities will be a good starting point. Through the course they will learn about some of the fundamentals of programming including variables, sequencing, selection and repetition.
CCEA has launched a new Digital Skills Framework for Key Stage 3 that aims to ensure young people become Digital Citizens, Workers and Makers. Accompanying the framework are a series of resources which will support Coding in the Classroom.
CCEA, in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast, have developed a new resource to support coding at Key Stage 3 (ages 11 - 14). CCEA have designed the resource to support the development of skills in the Python programming language.
