GCSE 2012 reforms: Supporting you every step of the way
We want to ensure that you have all the information and support you need to continue to teach our GCSE in ICT with confidence.
Take a look at the wide range of resources we offer for teaching and learning:
Edexcel training is designed to fit around you, with an option of face-to-face, online or customised training so you can choose where, when and how you want to be trained.
During the 2012 summer term, we will be running free face-to-face and online events on the impact of GCSEs going linear for ICT.
For more information, visit www.edexcel.com/training or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the specification, or if there's anything you're unsure of, please don't hesitate to contact Gareth Byrne, the ICT Subject Advisor, and his team on 0844 372 2186 or email TeachingICT@pearson.com.
Helping you plan and implement your Edexcel GCSE specification in a linear way
You'll find all the planning documents referred to below under the Teacher Support Materials category on the relevant web page.
Our course planners are designed to help you with long-term planning and give you guidance on how to structure the GCSE ICT course so you're prepared to deliver the new linear format.
Schemes of work
Our schemes of work for unit 1 and unit 2 will help you with planning and delivery, and give you guidance on how to structure the units plus some useful ideas and activities linked to specific sections of the specification.
Free, editable lesson plans and resources are available for both unit 1 and unit 2 to help you deliver the GCSE ICT course.
