When booking IT Teacher CPD we have the perfect tutor for you. With the current changes to the curriculum many schools have found that the ‘expert’ they booked from elsewhere turned out to have less than the implied knowledge of teaching computer science or programming, this is definitely not the case when booking with Code College.
Our tutor David Batty has been working as a software developer for 35 years and has been teaching courses defined as Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing or ICT, for 26 years. David was one of the ‘Bedroom Programmer’ success stories of the 1980’s (earning over £100,000 a year from a bedroom in the late 80’s), and has continued the same work ever since.
David is a qualified teacher and programmer, has Enhance DBS as well as QTLS, Cert Ed and City & Guilds 7307 teaching qualifications. He delivers teacher CPD courses to teachers on weekdays and is happy to deliver courses on weekends and during school holidays too. David also delivers night school courses and after school classes for Teachers, Schoolchildren, G&T’s and Support Staff.
Evening and weekend residential courses taught by David over the years have included Programming, Games Design, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Games Design, Visual Basic, Microsoft Office, Online Safety, Internet Marketing, Build A Computer and many other subjects.
David has been a technical reviewer for Apress (a technical reviewer is someone tasked with highlighting any errors or omissions made by authors) so spends some of his time examining programming code and checking book contents for the author to make corrections or amendments prior to publication.
David is also a tutor for the AQA, Gaia Technology and Westminster Briefing, you may have met him if you have attended an AQA CPD course for Gamemaker, Scratch or AS Computer Science, or if you have been on a Gaia, Westminster Briefing GCSE or A Level Computing course. He is also a Computer Science Inspector for OCR.
With decades of experience, David is the perfect choice for getting staff quickly up to speed with skills based around computing and programming.
