Teaching digital technologies

Up-skill and gain confidence in teaching digital technologies at NCEA level with our COMPSCI 101: Principles of Programming course.

COMPSCI 101 is the standard entry-level course to a Computer Science degree at the University of Auckland.

The course is offered three times a year and does not assume any prior programming experience, so it is perfect for school teachers looking to develop their programming skills.

On completing COMPSCI 101, you will receive a Certificate of Proficiency, which can be used as credit if you choose to continue onto a degree programme in the future.
