The North West CAS Regional Centre (North West) is based at The University of Manchester. The Regional Centre is an initiative to build regional support for computing in all Primary and Secondary schools. It is run jointly by the University of Manchester (School of Computer Science) and Edge Hill University, and is funded by the Department of Education through BCS (CAS). Are you a member of CAS? Find out more information and JOIN NOW!
Interested in forming a CAS hub? We are keen to support more hub groups to set up in the region so teachers don't have too far to travel to reach their nearest CAS hub meeting. There is plenty of information about what is involved in setting up and running a CAS hub here. Or just drop us an email for more information.
We are here for you! Please let us know how we can help in your school, or what help you can offer other schools. We can provide personalised CPD for any of your computing needs!
Please get in touch! To contact the Regional Centre: firstname.lastname@example.orgFollow @CAS_Manchester
