Ensoft, a UK based software company specialising in developing all aspects of networking software, has once again donated £40,000 to support Computing At School (CAS), part of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.

John Cooper, Chairman of Ensoft, says: “We are delighted to be able to continue to support Computing At School, part of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, with a significant donation. As an organisation that specialises in developing the highly complex software that runs the Internet, we are passionate about enabling all young people to navigate the digital future with confidence, and also encouraging them to consider computing and technology as a career option. Through the work CAS is doing in supporting teachers who want to teach computer science, it is helping the next generation to be equipped to thrive in a digital world, whatever path through life they choose. We are also delighted to be helping directly, with a number of our engineers volunteering to help run Code Clubs at local schools.”

CAS, which is part of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, also has support from Microsoft Research, Google, and the Council of Professors and Heads of Computing.

Simon Humphreys, Coordinator Computing At School, adds: “The ongoing support from Ensoft is very important for Computing At School. With the new curriculum in place, over two hundred people joining the CAS Community each week and the need to support teachers in the classroom the support we get from companies like Ensoft is so valuable. It enables us to provide training and provide other support to both primary and secondary school teachers of computing.”
