Allstate NI Provides Much Needed Teacher Training For New A Level

Following recent requests to Allstate Northern Ireland's training team, and after discussion with CCEA, Allstate NI's training department have created the 'Allstate Teachers' Technology Training' (AT3) programme. Recently 35 teachers from across NI attended a 5 day C# .NET course, customised for the new A-Level in Software Systems Development in the Allstate NI offices, Belfast. The new CCEA A level starts in September 2013 and is the first to require programming skills, which is presently not in the skillset of the teachers that will be delivering the syllabus to students in the upcoming term

An invite was sent out to post primary schools across NI to attend this course and 1 representative teacher from each participating school received the 5 days training along with a full set of C# .NET course material including class notes, assessments, sample code and sample projects geared towards the new A-Level, for teachers to practice and use with their students. The course value is over £1000, however Allstate NI are not asking for a fee for the course and materials but instead request that schools make a discretionary monetary donation to one of ANI's chosen charities for 2013, The NSPCC.

Allstate NI's two Senior Trainers, Gerry Byrne and David Wilson delivered the AT3 programme to 35 teachers from across NI ranging from Newry to Belfast, and from Ballymena to Lurgan. David and Gerry each have over 35 years teaching experience in both the education and industry sectors.
