CAS London is a jointly run collaboration of the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University London (QMUL) and the Department of Education and Professional Studies at King’s College London (KCL). QMUL offers a range of degrees in computer science and KCL trains future teachers of computer science on the PGCE in Computer Science.
Across London, we support over 50 master teachers and some 25 hubs.
We work closely with Teaching London Computing , a collaboration of QMUL and KCL.
One of our key objectives is to strengthen collaboration between our Master Teachers, hubs, lead schools and teachers with Borough teams, Learning Centres, Coding Clubs, Universities, voluntary groups,STEM and Industry partners.
