Computing at School Network of Excellence Courses

The Computing at School Network of Excellence (CAS) offers free meetings to support the development of the computing curriculum in primary schools.  CAS has a community of over 11,000 professionals, including teachers, academics, industry professionals, school governors and parents. Working with CAS, CTSN delivers local computing CPD courses.

These local CAS courses are hosted by CAS Master Teachers, such as Peter Gaynord. Peter is a KS2 teacher and Master Teacher in the Network of Excellence for the Teaching of Computer Science and also Specialist Leader of Education in the Cambridge Teaching School Network. Peter currently teaches at Hardwick and Cambourne Community Primary School. He has a first-class Computer Science degree and many years' industrial experience. He is primary-trained and is a Computing At Schools (CAS) Master Teacher. Peter is now in his eleventh year as a full-time general KS2 primary school teacher. His passion is to help children receive an exciting and relevant education in computing that leads to them enjoying the superior rewards of being technology creators and not simply technology users. More recently, in his role as Master Teacher, he is trying to support primary colleagues to successfully embrace the challenge of delivering the new computing curriculum. His aim is for other primary teachers to witness the pleasure their own children gain from developing capability in this exciting subject. 

CAS (Computing At School) hosts a regular meeting of Cambridgeshire teachers to share ideas and resources on how to teach the new primary computing curriculum. These meetings are aimed at all primary teachers, heads and subject coordinators who desire to learn more or share expertise about teaching the new computing curriculum.
