Bill Mitchel, Director of Education BCS, explains the impact of the new regional centres, like CAS London.
The Network of Teaching Excellence in Computer Science (NoE) is a national community of professional practice. This community is a partnership between schools, universities, IT employers and professional bodies. It is run by the Computing At School group (CAS), which itself if part of BCS. Thanks to funding from the Department for Education (DfE) the NoE now has ten university partners coordinating regional activity for the NoE.
Thanks to these universities:
Reach: The NoE has doubled the level of activity during the 2015 autumn term compared to the same period last year (see Section 9 of the latest network progress report, note this excludes any CPD that university NoE regional centres were already providing outside of the NoE).
Impact:Teachers who receive CPD from the NoE report their confidence in teaching computing has increased on average by 88% (see Section 7 of the DfE report).
