NATIONAL CENTRE FOR COMPUTING EDUCATION
ALL ABOUT US
The National Centre for Computing Education is funded by the Department for Education, to help improve the provision of computing education in England. The vision is to achieve world-leading computing education for every child in England.
WHAT WE OFFER
Providing quality assured support for the teaching of computing in schools and colleges, from Key Stage 1 through to A Level. Our training, resources and support are available both nationally and regionally across England. There are Computing Hub based across England that are offering face-to-face CPD along with the online CPD and resources to enable teachers to develop their subject knowledge.
To support teachers further there are subsidies available to many of the courses at both primary and secondary, with the opportunity for teachers to gain certification that is supported by the BCS and the Royal Academy of Engineering.
MERSEYSIDE AND WARRINGTON COMPUTING HUB
In July 2019 Priestley College was successful in their bid to become a regional Computing Hub, based at Beamont Collegiate Academy in a new, bespoke STEM Centre.
As a Computing Hub we provide local, responsive, and tailored support that is available to all teachers in state primary and secondary schools and colleges in the area. The hub has been hosting CPD courses for both primary and secondary provision since January 2020, as well as providing bespoke support and guidance.
