Course summary

Delivered in specialist computer laboratories at the newly completed state-of-the-art Innovation Quarter (IQ) in Swansea, you will work to develop your passion for technology with the most modern hardware and IT infrastructure.

The IQ space has benefitted from significant investment from Sony, who are using the facilities to lead its own technology developments in education; you will be learning to teach at the cutting edge of technology.

The blend of the purpose built IQ building, Sony Vison Exchange facility, and being placed in schools that nationally lead in the use of technology will equip you to be educators at the centre of practice.

Innovation and the use of technology has become an essential part of the lives of everyone in the 21st century.

Technology and Computer Science teachers are highly sought after by schools and colleges and demand is much greater than supply, therefore employability and promotional prospects are excellent.

There is no doubt that the role of computing, technology and all things digital have become key pillars in the modern world.

Preparing learners to understand the computational thinking that underpins digital systems, is a significant responsibility. We need to prepare young people to be ethical, informed citizens of the world as well as equipping them with the digital skills needed for the workplace.

You will develop the knowledge and expertise needed to teach the subject discipline, together with developing expertise in the cross-curricular responsibility of digital competence.

Information Technology and Computer Science’s importance as a key competency has never been more significant

The importance of technology to support learners’ own productivity has seen schools place the development of computing and ICT skills at the forefront of students learning. Schools have invested heavily in computing and technology systems to support these highly prioritised skills.

You will be prepared to teach the new Area of Learning and Experience: Science and Technology through to the GCSE and A level exam groups.
