Computing
Our dedicated team can provide tailored support based upon the needs of the individual or groups of schools. 

The services which we provide are high quality professional development programs and are presented through briefing session for subject leaders, best practice and advise through e-briefings and newsletters, in school consultancy and support based upon the needs of the school.

This information can also be communicated through telephone and email advice guidance.

From September 2014, Computing replaces ICT in the new National Curriculum.

The National Curriculum for Computing aims to ensure that all pupils:
  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
