Cardiff CAS Hub
Opened: 10 March 2015
Wales is undergoing a major reformulation of its entire school curriculum, due for full implementation by 2021. The ‘Digital Competence Framework’ (DCF) is the umbrella phrase now in use in Wales, a descriptor which was introduced by the Donaldson Review. The DCF is in its draft implementation.
The DCF is a broad cross-curricular entitlement alongside literacy and numeracy but unlike England it does not directly include Computer Science. Thus the focus of professional support and development in Wales could well be different from that of England. Through the initial development of the DCF rather than a Computing curriculum there is more focus on what is more commonly known to CAS as ‘digital literacy’ with aspects relate to computational thinking.
