About Us

The Department of Computer Science has had a dedicated academic staff member serving CAS Coordinator for York and its CAS Hub as a registered working member of CAS. This position, which is a formal role in the department, is allocated time to: coordinate and contribute to Hub activities, lead continuing professional development with primary and secondary teachers, communicate opportunities for training as computing teachers to undergraduate and graduate studies, and coordinate with our other outreach activities to promote and disseminate CAS throughout schools.

In addition to this commitment, the University of York has had a long-standing collaboration with the National STEM Centre/National Science Learning Centre. National STEM Centre/National Science Learning Centre is now collectively known as the National STEM Learning Centre, operated by STEM Learning Ltd a wholly owned subsidiary of the white rose consortium of universities which includes the University of York.
