Renewed funding for computing education CPD and support

National support, training and resources for the delivery of computing education in schools is continuing thanks to renewed funding from the Department for Education.

The £20,000 investment means that the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) and its network of Computing Hubs will continue their work with primary and secondary schools across England for the next two years until summer 2025.

The NCCE was set up four years ago with £84m of DfE funding and is run by a consortium made up of STEM Learning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and BCS – the Chartered Institute for IT.

Since 2018, it has delivered CPD for more than 60,000 teachers and educators while 7,300 teachers have received more than 10 hours of subject knowledge training via its Computer Science Accelerator programme. More than one million Teach Computing Curriculum resources have been downloaded by schools since September 2020.
