MZCS - Law, Economic, Politics and Computer Science

Since completing a degree in Law, I went on to teaching Computer Science and have done this for many years. I am now working in a secondary school / sixth form teaching Law, Economics, and Politics to KS5, Computer Science to KS3 and KS4 and Geography to KS3. Over the years I have developed resources that I have used in the classroom and know how difficult it can be to find suitable resources that engage and excite pupils. I thought it would be great to share my tried and tested resources and I will continue to upload more resources when I can but please tweet me if there is anything in particular you need. - MZCS
