Accelerating Computer Science: An Introduction to WJEC AS Computer Science


  • Clock outlineMonday 15 February 2021, 09:00 - 14:30

The Cardiff Technocamps Hub within the School of Computer Science and Informatics are continuing their delivery of the Accelerating Computer Science programme for Year 11 Computer Science students across Wales.

We will be providing a free, online, one-day event for Year 11 WJEC Computer Science students during February half term which will give them an introduction and taster experience of WJEC AS Computer Science.

This programme will be delivered by an experienced Computer Science educator who has substantial experience of teaching and leading Computer Science in both the public and private education sectors.

Participants will cover subject knowledge in relation to the Unit One specification and will cover a range of topics which are not taught at GCSE level.

Learners will be given complete tasks and take additional resources away with them so they can get a real insight as to what studying AS level Computer Science is all about.
