In preparation for the move to our new CAS website, activity across our current site will be limited between 13th and 20th September. This means that between these dates you will unable to apply to become a CAS Member or Community Leader, no updates will be possible to existing resources or events, and no new events or resources can be added. Members wishing to register for events will be able to do this, except for on 20th September. We apologise for any inconvenience, however are really excited for you to see our new site!

Leading a local CAS Community

Leading a CAS Community

Running a local CAS Community has been described as "low maintenance, high impact". It takes, at most, a few hours each month to organise a CAS meeting, but all – including the organiser – leave these meetings motivated to try something new in their classroom.

Benefits of leading a CAS Community

  • Development of own understanding and practice in supporting collaborative professional development within and beyond school
  • Raising profile in own school and local community of schools
  • Opportunity to shape development of the subject through CAS and the NCCE
  • Access to new resources provided centrally and through the CAS community, supported by training in these resources and pedagogies
  • Develop as a Community Leader through the CAS Community Leader development programme
  • Training in using classroom resources for teaching computing
  • Public liability insurance through BCS for all CAS activity
  • Discuss and share with other CAS Community leaders on Community Leader's forum

In addition all CAS Community Leaders will be invited to attend a Community Leader induction which covers:

  • First steps as a Community Leader
  • Administration and branding
  • Recognition and development

After induction each Community Leader will then receive a Community Leader pack, which includes a CAS supporter's certificate, CAS banner and other resources/information to support you in your role.
