2018 National CAS Conference

"Such a great buzz!!! So many practical ideas :-)"

In 2018 we will be celebrating the 10th annual CAS Conference!  It is incredible to reflect on the way members of the CAS community have supported each other during the period of curriculum change.  This year we will be celebrating all things CAS with the usual range of inspiring plenaries, classroom based workshops and breakouts, the opportunity to meet with like-minded colleagues and return refreshed with new ideas and activities for the classroom.

 

The National CAS Conference is suitable for primary and secondary teachers alike and we promise there will be something for you whatever your background.  It's a great way to experience all that the CAS Community has to offer.
