CAS North East is run by the School of Computing and the Teaching Innovation Group. The regional centre is a natural extension of our existing work with CAS. CAS and teachers are at the heart of our schools outreach work and sustained engagement with the region’s computing education community.
Each centre is now responsible for working with the CAS Master Teachers in their area to promote and support relevant teacher engagement and CPD activities, with the ultimate aim of establishing effective and enduring local communities of practice involving Master Teachers, Lead Schools and local Hubs. The CAS Regional Centres are also helping CAS Master Teachers further extend their subject knowledge, so they can better support other teachers in their communities and are promoting best ‘on-the-ground’ practice.
The North East regional hub covers Darlington, Durham, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Middlesborough, Newcastle upon Tyne, North & South Tyneside, Redcar and Cleveland, Stockton-on Tees and Sunderland.
