Example CPD

School Coding Club: (Primary educators) Have you ever wanted to set up a coding club at school, but lacked the confidence to go for it. Let our STEM team support you through the first term of your new club giving you the tools and confidence you need to carry on the club yourselves after the term ends. The King’s Foundation will deliver 5 sessions of your Coding Club with you, followed up by teacher support and training, to empower you to take over at the end of the course.

Industry Insights: (Secondary educators) Find out about the jobs available in industries in the South West of Scotland, through a combination of site visits, online panel discussions and in person presentations throughout the academic year. Keep yourself up to date with opportunities to enable you to offer the best career advice to your pupils.

Industry Engagement: (STEM Industry Practitioners) Have you ever been asked to prepare an activity for a career fair, run a short activity or deliver a full day’s workshop for a school or public audience? Do you want to know how to design and deliver an activity that is engaging, and informative, all at the same time? Well, let our experts help you do just that. Our education team at The King’s Foundation deliver award winning school and public programmes to everyone from 4 to 94 year old members of the community. In the morning we will cover some of the theory aspects of public engagement, looking at different learning styles and how to strike the balance between information and fun. In the afternoon you’ll be supported to come up with or develop further your own engagement activities, to ensure that the next time you are asked to work with members of your local community that you are ready to go with confidence! £75 per person
