"It has been a great support, to help me with areas that needed development in my teaching and delivery of Computer Science. The impact has been noticeable in my pedagogy and management of the demands of the job role that I am currently in. You have helped me identify steps that I should take, in order to progress in my career."  Coachee

"Since starting I have grown in confidence and now reflect more in my own practice. I feel I have grown and developed as a leader at school and improved my interpersonal skills to develop computer science within the school and with my colleagues."  Donna Robertson, CAS Coach

"It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to work with such a committed and creative group of colleagues as part of the CAS coaching programme. The shared vision to create a coaching culture within and across departments was genuinely inspirational, as was the palpable growth in collective confidence in working with others to achieve this goal. I have absolutely no doubt that this teams of exceptional coaches is now already making a very special and significant difference in their schools."  Derek Peaple, CAS Executive Coach
