Picademy@Google Glasgow


Thanks to the generosity and support of our friends at Google, educators can apply for FREE Raspberry Pi Continued Professional Development (CPD), hosted by Google in cities around the UK, in conjunction with the Digital Garage programme.

The next set of events will be held in Glasgow at Glasgow Mitchell Library (see full address below).

Teachers of any subject at primary, secondary or post-16 level, as well as other educators who either work with children or educate student teachers, can apply to Picademy@Google. The courses are run by a group of our highly skilled community members and educators, and are a mix of hands-on making, project-based learning, and hacking.

Attendees graduate as Raspberry Pi Certified Educators, ready to share their new-found enthusiasm with the children they work with and other educators.

Primary schools in Glasgow can also apply for our free, volunteer-led, in-school training sessions. The two-hour CPD sessions are designed for you and your fellow educators to gain the skills and confidence needed for teaching computing at First and Second Level.

Choose from three learning pathways: Computational Thinking, Programming, and The Internet, and submit a request for one of our local computer science expert volunteers to come to your school and run a free twilight session. We’ll help you feel confident and excited about delivering the computing curriculum!
