Our NCCE Impact Report, published on Wednesday, details how our work is making a difference in the classroom and to the next generation of learners.
We’re delighted at the feedback from teachers in the report; whether that’s the 68% of primary teachers who told us that NCCE had increased children’s motivation and engagement or the three quarters of secondary teachers who reported increased motivation and engagement.
Around half of secondary teacher participants had seen improved progress and/or attainment.
But the NCCE is not working alone. As well as our six strategic partners who have supported our work, Arm, Google, Microsoft, Nationwide, Rolls-Royce and BT, we work closely with other organisations and we're grateful to have received their feedback on our second anniversary.
Rachid Hourizi, Director of the Institute of Coding:
“The Institute of Coding is proud to be working with the NCCE to create a more cohesive, joined up approach to digital skills and computing education, with our combined efforts reaching learners in schools, colleges and higher education.
“There is a recognised digital skills gap in the UK and, as our country turns to the tech sector to power our post-COVID economic recovery, there will be a continued need for a broad and diverse group of people to have digital and computing skills.
“Through the NCCE’s support of schools and teachers over the last two years, they are helping to ensure that the next generation of learners have the digital skills needed to increase their future employability and contribute to the UK’s economy for decades to come.”
Dr Helen Harth, Senior Policy Adviser (Education), Royal Society:
“In only two years since its inception, the NCCE has made a significant and positive difference to thousands of teachers who were able to access high quality specialist training, resources and guidance and increase the number of computer science specialist teachers.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the NCCE has continued to help teachers of computing to achieve the best outcomes for students through online lessons, and maintain the progress made in computing, which is so important given the increased importance of digital and computing skills to young people’s lives and careers in an uncertain future.”
