Launch of PLAN C local hubs

With 50 lead teachers in local authorities across Scotland able to provide regular meetings within reasonable travelling distance of your school we’re now ready to open registration for the PLAN C local hubs.  All of the local hubs will have started after the summer holidays with a few having their first meeting in June and the rest starting in mid August to early September.

Based on the feedback from computing teachers across the country, we’ve created a programme that is local and face to face, draws on the latest CS education research and is illustrated with example activities you could use when teaching the new Nationals, the old Computing or new Higher Computing Science qualifications.

This is the largest coordinated programme of inservice professional learning specifically for computing there has ever been and it represents a unique, once in a career opportunity for us to come together and work to help reinvent computing in the eyes of pupils, parents and our other teaching colleagues. It also provides ample evidence for GTCS professional update requirements and certification by the BCS Academy of Computing as well as access to a range of editable materials and online support.

You can register to take part in a local group by visiting http://www.casscotland.org.uk/takepart/ and we’d encourage you to contact lead teachers in your local area to hear the difference that participation in PLAN C has already made to their teaching and, more importantly, the quality of pupils learning.
