Professional Development for Teachers

Professional Development For Teachers

Junior Engineers is proud to offer a range of professional development programs to help build teacher capability in order to support the delivery of the Digital Technologies Curriculum in a fun and engaging manner.

Our workshops have been developed by qualified teachers who specialise in STEM and understand effective pedagogy and the Digital Technologies Curriculum. Each program is delivered by our team of qualified teachers who will extend your capabilities so you’re left feeling confident in your ability to integrate digital technologies into your classroom.

We recognise that teachers have differing levels of experience with digital technologies, so we have developed a range of programs of varying complexity in order to align the content to your experience level.

By the end of each program, you will leave with the confidence to start teaching coding in an engaging way that achieves the best outcomes for your students.
