Computing at School
CAS is a grass roots organisation, whose energy, creativity, and leadership comes from its members. We are a collaborative partner with the BCS through the BCS Academy of Computing, and has formal support from other industry partners. Membership is open to everyone, and is very broad, including teachers, parents, governors, exam boards, industry, professional societies, and universities. We speak for the discipline of computing at school level, inc. FE, and not for any particular interest group.
CAS seeks to work at many levels, including
- Directly supporting ICT and Computing teachers who are excited by computing, by providing them with teaching material, training, local hubs, newsletters and the opportunity to meet with like-minded colleagues.
- Acting as a Subject Association for computing teachers.
- Working at an institutional level, for example by encouraging the developments of GCSEs in Computing.
- Advocacy at national policy level; for example, submitting evidence to the Royal Society study on Computing in School.
