Hi all, has anyone undergone the process of getting a BCS scholarship for teaching in Computing? I have an online multiple-choice test which I need to do, can anyone tell me how hard it is?! Its been a while since I have sat down and studied so a little concerned!

After that, I have an online class and interview to complete- any tips would be gratefully received!

I thought I'd apply for the BCS scholarship but I'm not a big fan of them. My perception is that they're from the age when computers were run by guys wearing white lab coats.

I just did the test. It's really hard, especially if you've not graduated in Computer Science. If you have a Computer Science GCSE book (the OCR one is very good) then it might help if you read that through first. Even then you'll probably struggle as the questions largely test rote memorization.

Personally I think the Computer Science GCSE syllabus is a big pile of :mad:. I spent 20 years working as a software developer and the current syllabus is neither interesting or relevent to what you'd actually do if you were a software developer. The A level one is better.

I've not done my sample lesson yet but I've worked as a teacher overseas so I'm used to planning lessons. I've also had hundreds of job interviews over the years so not worried about that either.

Anyway, good luck unclebob (and anyone else applying for scholarships).
