The other 50% of the time will be dedicated on the use of technology including O365, Minecraft: Education Edition, Micro:bit, Skype, hands-on workshops, computational thinking and working on redesigning the lesson.

The professional development can be part of the accelerated progression scheme and will have a total value of 150 hours.

This will be done to ensure all colleges will get a possibility of representation.
