Computing Hub

Computing Hubs have been established to help schools and colleges lead improvement in Computer Science education in England. Our vision is for every child in every school in England to have a world-leading computing education.

Computing Hubs are led by schools and colleges across England with an exceptional track record in teaching computing. They deliver face-to-face courses and provide local support for teachers in primary and secondary schools in their area.

Beauchamp College, Oadby leads the Leicester & East Midlands Computing Hub. We work with schools and colleges in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.

The primary aim of Computing At School (CAS) is to promote and develop the teaching of computing in schools by supporting teachers. One way to achieve this is to provide teachers with a local forum (CAS Community) to share ideas and mutual interests. These CAS Communities form the foundation of much of the work of CAS. CAS Community meetings are for teachers, run by teachers. Details of the upcoming community meetings can be found on the relevant community page below.
Our nearby CAS communities are:
CAS Leicester North (Primary)
CAS Leicester South (Primary and Secondary)
CAS Leicester West (Primary)
CAS Leicestershire South (Primary and Secondary)
​CAS RUTLAND (Primary)

The DfE is funding support for schools in Leicester that wish to improve or update the teaching and learning of computing. The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) has been set up to offer this support, which includes:

  • Bespoke 1:1 support from a Subject Matter Expert (half a day)
  • Support with planning, resources, and assessment
  • Access to the NCCE's Teach Computing curriculum (Yrs 1-6)
  • Tailored CPD for all staff
  • Free online courses
  • Face-to-face and remote courses with a bursary of £220 for completing a course*

(*The first teacher from each school is eligible for a one-off bursary for a course completed remotely or face to face and taking place within school hours)
