Digi Explorers is our first Computing programme for primary school students, introducing and practicing the fundamentals of computational thinking, online safety, digital literacy and coding using the hugely popular and fun Scratch programming language. The programme provides a high quality, comprehensive introduction to computing for students both in the UK and internationally and is fully aligned with the new English Computing curriculum for Key Stage 1.
The Digi-Explorers programme is suitable for candidates aged 5–7 years old (Key Stage 1 in the English national curriculum) as well as older learners.
It is expected that candidates who are non-native English speakers are able to cope with the demands of preparing for and taking the Digi-Explorers assessment in English.
All students who complete a Digi programme book are provided with a certificate of achievement. On completion of a full Digi programme (i.e. for Digi Explorers this means completing Books 1 & 2) students may be entered for formal assessment leading to qualification certification.
The NCC Education Digi assessment and certification ensures students achieve recognition at each stage (i.e. for each programme book completed) as well as the opportunity to gain an internationally available Computing qualification – and global benchmark for their computing skills and knowledge – from NCC Education.
