Join us for a day of activities and information designed to support teachers of computer science. The Conference opens with a talk from Professor Leslie Carr, University of Southampton, about 'Upheaval in Computing', followed by bookable workshop sessions throughout the day for KS3, KS4 and Post 16 computing teachers and heads of computing. There will also be a supplier, kit and publisher exhibition during the day.
The conference is very generously hosted by Queen Anne's School in ‘The Space’, the school’s new state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre.
