The Computing At School COMMUNITY

CAS is a community of individuals who are passionate about giving our children a great education in computing. It is a community of professional practice, which we join as colleagues in a shared endeavour. It is not a service to which we subscribe.

The CAS Community members and champions run over 150 regional hubs. Here, we meet together, talk, exchange ideas and share resources. Join CAS to become a member of this community. It’s free, you get no spam, and you’ll have access to 20,000+ colleagues, 3,000+ resources, the online discussions, and much more.
