The Regional Delivery Partners will provide a comprehensive programme of support for local schools and colleges until the end of October 2019, and are already running computing courses at various venues in their local area.
“We are excited to widen our offer of support for teachers through our new regional network, providing national coverage for the National Centre across the country. Working together, we can help teachers access the right support, resources and guidance wherever they are.” Louise Ishani, Programme Manager, National Centre for Computing Education
