Pearson offers a comprehensive package of support which covers all aspects of your teaching, from planning your courses, through the resources you can use to teach, to the tracking and assessment that’s so important for you to keep track of your students’ progress.

Pearson’s brand-new comprehensive published resources* are written specifically to support the 2016 Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specification. New resources from spring 2016 include:

  • Student book and Institutional Activebook: supporting great computer science teaching through a scenario-based approach to problem solving and computational thinking
  • Revision guide and workbook: written to support your students with their GCSE mocks and final exam preparation.

You can take a look at sample chapters from Pearson’s new Student Book to help you with your planning now.

What's more, we’re offering an exciting opportunity to access a selection of our resources for free to help you get started this autumn term. Our scheme of work for the autumn term has been adapted to show how the Pearson published resources can be used alongside our free activities, and we’re giving you the first topics of the textbook you’ll need for free.

* You don't have to purchase any resources, including those from Pearson, to deliver our qualification.
