Welcome to my blog. I am a newly qualified Computer Science Teacher in an 11-18 Catholic Secondary school in Cheshire. Formerly an IT consultant and manager and an IT security expert, I have just completed my PGCE at Manchester Metropolitan University where I benefited from the BCS scholarship, and I plan to become a Computing At School (CAS) Master Teacher in time, and at some point complete my Masters degree.
This blog intends to capture my thoughts as an NQT, a budding CAS Master Teacher and a collector of all things #EdTech, with hints and tips, a bit of politics and general chit-chat thrown in.
Feel free to comment, I will leave comments open and retro-moderate (for spam, offence and inappropriate content only, never for criticism) unless it becomes a problem, so play nice!
First post will be a round up of my PGCE year with hints and tips for new PGCEs, and second may well be a #Brexit moan, you have been warned.
