The Norfolk Computing Hub is one of the national hubs established by The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE). The NCCE is funded by the Department for Education and marks a significant investment in improving the provision of computing education in England.
The National Centre for Computing Education – run by a consortium made up of STEM Learning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, has established a national network of 38 Computing Hubs to deliver a school-led system of leadership of education across England, with a vision to achieve a world-leading computing education for every child in England. The network is led by schools and colleges with an exceptional track record in teaching computing.
Adam Gibson is an experienced teacher of computer science
having delivered the subject at A Level for almost 25 years,
and at GCSE since its inception. He is the Hub Lead for the NCCE Norfolk Computing Hub, which as one of the first Computing Hubs has trained hundreds of teachers in Norfolk and across England at primary and secondary level.
Originally (and still) a geography teacher, Adam can empathise with the non-specialists that much of the training available is appropriate for, and he uses this to support and encourage colleagues who may feel in unfamiliar territory.
He became a CAS Master Teacher on an early cohort and will testify to just how valuable this has been to him. As well as Hub Lead, Adam is an NCCE Lead Facilitator, ISAAC Facilitator, Head of Department and CAS Dereham Community Leader.
Adam, along with our Primary & Secondary SMEs, can help you understand the full offer from the NCCE, provide bespoke support, and identify the most appropriate pathway for teachers in your school.
