Do you know your nearest NCCE hub and what they offer you and your community? During December and January CAS Community members will have the opportunity to meet their local NCCE hub to find out more.
What are these meetings about?
Join your CAS Outreach Manager and local NCCE hub leads for a special ‘Meet and Greet’ meeting to bring CAS Community members and NCCE hubs together to:
- Raise awareness of CPD opportunities available and what is needed by teachers;
- put names to faces and build local collaboration in computing across the Computing Hub areas;
- to discuss hot topics for future events, especially where NCCE resources can be integrated;
- to plan for future CAS and NCCE events, from local CAS Communities to larger scale strategic events.
Why should I go along?
These meetings are a great way for you, as a community member, to strengthen the relationship between communities and hubs, so that they can contribute to and support your meetings. Your community can learn how they can benefit from the range of activities in your area and find out about courses, accreditation, bursaries available and free resources for teaching computing.
It is an opportunity for you to share your training and support needs with the hubs so that they can provide up-to-date and relevant training and support which meets the needs of schools in your community.
Which meeting should I go to?
There are 34 computing hubs across England, led by schools and colleges with excellence in teaching computing.
