Mentoring Support for Non-Computing Mentors (Remote)

CORE

Trainees and NQTs can bring so much to a computing department, including fresh eyes, new ideas and lots of enthusiasm.

This CPD, aimed at current mentors, outlines the benefits of having computing on the curriculum, attributes of a successful computing mentor, and outlines how to support computing trainees in their subject knowledge and pedagogical approaches to computing.
