Practical programming skills in Python

Essential skills for GCSE projects



This unit contains ten topics each guiding GCSE students through the essential programming skills required to undertake their own practical projects with success and competence. The unit assumes little prior experience of Python and gradually builds up proficiency in ten key skill areas including file handling, validation and working with lists. The practical application of each of the skill areas covered will also assist students with their understanding of the theoretical examination questions required of all the (9-1) GCSE and IGCSE specifications.

The unit concludes with exemplar solutions to five projects which each demonstrate different applications of the major skills commonly required at this level.

What's included?

The Python skills unit has been written to satisfy the core skills required for the Computer Science GCSE. This unit contains:

  • PowerPoint slides for each lesson
  • Detailed lesson plans

What people say...

I get offered probably every IGCSE, OCR and AQA resource pack out there and have seen most. I can tell you without doubt yours are the best. Your resources are head and shoulders above the rest.

Kieren Reynolds. CAS Master teacher and teacher, Henry Beaufort School

Your resources have saved me hours of planning. From lesson PowerPoints to the end of unit assessments, each part of the subject is covered. Department budgets should be spent on these.
