​​There are two aspects to the support offered by eLIM to Middle/Secondary teachers of Computing.  There are 'gatherings' for all schools across Somerset as well as cluster or individual school on-site training opportunities.

S4S Shared INSET Day

This day is a day organised by teachers for teachers.
During the day there is a selection of topics with plenty of opportunity to talk to other teachers from throughout Somerset..

Subject Leader Development Days

Although these meetings are titled Subject Leader Meetings (a throwback to National Curriculum days) these meetings cover issues for any teacher of Computing.

Other training and consultancy

All Middle and Secondary schools are entitled to some on-site support at no extra cost. 
Ideas that some schools have used this support for include:
  • Curriculum design
  • INSET training for teachers - Python, coding, e-safety
  • support for liaison between schools
  • 'Master' classes for learners
  • Programming Clubs after school
If you have ideas on how this support can be used then contact igover@somerset.gov.uk with your ideas.

WEICT Conference

This day organised by advisors throughout the South West of England providing an opportunity to listen to national speakers, meet suppliers and talk about It and computing in schools.  Well worth attending.
