Coding Assist

Introduced in 2014, the Computing element of the new primary curriculum brought computer programming into the classroom for the first time. Discovery Education Coding was created in response to these new requirements, aiming to help non-specialists deliver engaging and stimulating lessons for a new generation. Our in-class support session - Coding Assist, is aimed at teachers who are unfamiliar with the teaching of computing and specifically computer programming. The session will provide the benefit of a specialist’s support in the classroom, to assist teachers in the structuring and implementation of the Discovery Education Coding service.

Our Coding Assist support session can be delivered for £595 (up to 4.5hrs) or as a part of the 'Coding Digital Journey' where we can deliver two sessions (Introducing Discovery Education Coding to your school and Embedding Discovery Education Coding with in-class support) for £800 to your team.

Coding Assist goals:

  • To gain hands on experience of planning, organising and delivering a Discovery Education Coding lesson with specialist support
  • To increase understanding of computer programming terminology
  • To gain an insight into how to practically deliver a successful activity rich lesson
  • To increase non-specialist teacher confidence to deliver future successful lessons

Coding Assist outcomes:

  • An understanding of computer programming language and its relation to the real world
  • Practical guidance on creating a structured lesson plan, covering set up and organisation
  • Enhanced confidence to deliver computer programming lessons to meet the National Curriculum 2014 specifications
  • Experience, in a supported environment, in delivering engaging and focused multi-device lessons
