Fujitsu unveils e-learning qualification, Fujitsu CoDE, to enhance teacher tech skills

At Bett Show 2019, Fujitsu will officially launch Fujitsu CoDE (Certificate of Digital Excellence), a digital qualification for teachers which will help develop their tech skills to pass on to pupils.

The online CPD (Continuous Professional Development) course, available free of charge to all teachers, has been designed with support from leading exam board, OCR. It will address the most valuable digital skills that will have the biggest impact on the jobs of tomorrow.

Fujitsu CoDE will comprise six key modules with a certificate issued in recognition once each module is complete. Upon completion of all six modules, the Fujitsu Code Certificate will be awarded.

The six modules consist of:

  1. Internet of Things (IoT)
  2. Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR)
  3. Cyber Security
  4. Data Analytics and Big Data
  5. Programming / Coding / Robotics
  6. Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Cognitive Computing

The digital world is now moving so fast that many of us understandably feel left in the dark about the latest products, services and methods.

For the country’s educators, it is paramount that they are up to speed with these technologies, so that they can impart that knowledge on to their pupils and equip them with the necessary skills to compete in the workplace of the future.

As technology solutions providers, we at Fujitsu are determined to ensure that teachers have the right digital skills and knowledge to inform and inspire their pupils.

In doing so, collectively with the education sector, we can be sure that young people will be ready to live and work in the exciting digital world of tomorrow.

Fujitsu CoDE will be available for demonstration at Fujitsu’s stand E250 at Bett Show 2019 in London’s ExCel Centre on 23 – 26 January 2019.
