Summary:

Computing at School (CAS) is a community of professional practice composed of individuals who are passionate about giving children a great education in computing. Raising the profile of computing in the classroom cannot occur without skilled teachers who are confident in both their subject knowledge and their pedagogical knowledge. The successful CAS (England) model of CPD starting with the Master Teacher and Lead school, moving to the Network of Excellence and currently developing the CAS Regional Centres has supported computing in schools at all Key Stages. Northern Ireland would benefit greatly from the implementation of a similar model.

This talk will describe the progress that has been made in Northern Ireland and our plans for the future.
