Consultant Opportunity - CS (Computer Science) Champion

The National Centre for Computing Education is a comprehensive and ambitious programme to support and improve the provision of computing education in England’s state-funded schools and colleges, improve teachers’ confidence in teaching the computing curriculum, and drive up participation and attainment in computer science at GCSE, AS and A level.

Our vision is for every child in every school in England to have a world-leading computing education. We will bring that vision to life through the Computer Science (CS) Accelerator, a programme of free, high-quality professional development and support to upskill thousands of teachers with the subject knowledge to successfully deliver the GCSE Computer Science across England.

For the period to October 2019, 10 Regional Delivery Partners will provide local face-to-face CPD to teachers within their region. Over time a network of 40 school-led Computing Hubs will be established which will; provide continuing professional development (CPD) and resources for computing and computer science teachers in primary and secondary schools and colleges; facilitate links with industry, and; co-ordinate the performance of the suppliers across the associated programmes.

This role is instrumental in ensuring that all schools and colleges are able to benefit from the support provided by the CS Accelerator programme, acting as the local point of contact for GCSE Computing support for teachers undertaking the Programme, directing them to appropriate NCCE support, such as online or face to face CPD.

Please see the attached documents for further information on the role and details on how to apply.

The closing date for applications is 29th January 2019 with interviews taking place on 11th, 13th or 14th February 2019.
