Coronavirus update from the National Centre for Computing Education

18 March 2020

Face to face activity suspended until further notice

In light of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), all NCCE scheduled face-to-face courses have been suspended, until further notice. Our priority is the health and safety of everyone that we work with, particularly our teachers and staff.

Meanwhile we are looking at how our face-to-face provision can be moved online e.g. via webinars.

We’re here online to help you!

  • We continue to provide online Continuous Professional Development courses for primary and secondary schools teachers and we strongly encourage you to sign up.
  • You can listen to our podcasts and hear experts, teachers and educators discussing their approaches to key teaching issues.
  • We have a fantastic resource repository with a library of lesson plans, units and activities that can be used to teach your pupils.
  • For A Level teachers and their students log on to the Isaac Computer Science platform for easy to use resources and activities on a range of topics.
  • And you can join the conversation with the Community of Practice hosted by Computing at School at virtual Community Meetings, through the CAS Forum and via Facebook too.

Further updates will be posted here as we receive more information, and you can keep up to date with us on Twitter @WeAreComputing.


Wishing everyone the very best during this period of uncertainty.
