The University of Manchester is home to the CAS Regional Centre North West (Manchester) and were proud to recently host a training day for new Master Teachers. The training was delivered by Simon Humphreys, the National Coordinator for CAS.
CAS Master Teachers are the NoE’s “Practitioner Champions” – experienced, high-performing classroom teachers with a passion for the subject; enthusiasm, energy, and a desire to support others.
CAS Master Teachers:
- Champion computer science in schools and the wider teaching profession
- Provide training, mentoring and coaching to teachers in their local communities
- Support collaboration between schools and universities.
They are part of the local community of practice and will work alongside their CAS Regional Centres and the local hubs to support teachers of computing in their local area, enable their professional development, and support curriculum change.
Congratulations to our newest Master teachers who you will undoubtably meet in the region over the coming months.
