Student Skills

Computing, The student should have good IT skills and be knowledgeable in regards to programming.

Expected Pupil Outcomes

The learning outcomes expected from the pupil is that they will be able to get an insight into this subject area of programming and develop skills within the area with the help of the student teacher. They will also find a benefit of a computing science student, teaching them how to program as they will have studied this all before and can answer questions and provide guidance for them. As a result of this, they may develop a liking for the subject which may encourage them to study it at a higher level for example GCSE, A-level or at University.

Expected Student Tutor Outcomes

The student will be able to further develop their programming as well as communication skills as they will be in contact with a range of different pupils individually as well as members of staff; this will allow them to build up relationships with the pupils. The student will also have to help within classes and speak to the pupils as a group as well as giving one to one guidance. This will help boost their confidence and interpersonal skills as well as communication skills.
