Teach Computing Update – National Centre for Computing Education
Wednesday, October 20, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Teach Computing with support from the National Centre for Computing Education and the Local Computing Hubs and experts
The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) is funded by the Department for Education and marks a significant investment in improving the provision of computing education in England. It is run by a consortium made up of STEM Learning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. It aims to transform the way computing is taught in schools across the country – and enable more young people to benefit from studying this important subject, enhancing their skills and career opportunities.
NCCE believes that every individual, and group of individuals, should feel included and encouraged when engaging with computing education. It ensures that diversity and inclusion is integral to its planning, programmes and materials, the way it works and how it behave. Within a culture that champions diversity and promotes inclusion, it knows it is better able to advance its vision.
It provide teachers with a comprehensive range of evidence-informed, high-quality support, including free resources and training courses – mostly free of charge or supported by bursaries – to help them become inspirational computing teachers.
NCCE has 34 Computing Hubs across England, led by schools and colleges with excellence in teaching computing. These Hubs support schools and colleges to provide a high-quality computing education to all young people. Your local hub will work with you to identify your computing needs and provide a targeted programme of support to help embed this key subject in your school. Support includes high-quality CPD with generous bursaries; teaching and learning resources; and school-to-school support.
This session will focus on how the NCCE and your local computing hub can support your school to provide outstanding Computing for all.
