Julia Adamson, Director of Education BCS, provides a short update on the progress to date of the National Centre for Computing Education and how the CAS Community can get involved.
Following the announcement earlier in the month we’re working hard to:
Communicate with stakeholders, please register
Create courses and content
The latest CAS webinar is now available, we pre-recorded this one – it covers all the questions that were raised following the webinar last week.
Please use this thread on the CAS Forum to raise questions, provide feedback.
You can help get involved in a number of ways:
- Lead a CAS Local Community If you’re a CAS Community Leader please look out for an email from Simon Humphreys, we are asking all Leaders to re-register. We will be providing all Leaders with resources to support you to provide an update on the NCCE. Do drop us a line at email@example.com if you have any questions.
- Support your Local CAS Community. Please go along to support your CAS Local Community Meeting this term.
- Apply to be one of 40 Computing Hubs. Applications from schools to lead a Computing Hub will be open early in the New Year – more information to come soon. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are thinking of applying.
- Support the training and CPD delivery. A tender has been published for institutions to be around 10 Regional Delivery Partners – these partners will ensure that training is available very soon –in parallel to the school-based Computing Hubs getting established. There will be opportunities for 200 local facilitators to get involved once the Regional Partners have been selected. Local facilitators will deliver the CPD programme to teachers in their local area. This is a great opportunity to CAS Master Teachers to get involved with delivering the CPD from the NCCE. We’ll keep you posted as things progress.
