To run the National Centre for Computing Education, we’re looking for people to fill a number of job roles across software development, educational content creation and programme management:

Regional Delivery Partners

We are now inviting proposals to become one of around 10 Regional Delivery Partners to support the work of the NCCE for the period 7 January 2019 to 31 October 2019. We will decide the final number by the need to provide a geographical spread across England.

Regional Delivery Partners will make sure that teachers can access a suite of relevant, inspiring and effective CPD opportunities, covering practical and theoretical aspects of teaching computing.

You can find the invitation to tender and more details here. If you would like to submit a tender, you should send it to [email protected] by no later than noon on 7 December 2018.

School and industry partners

We’re also looking for schools and industry partners to help us deliver the aims of the centre. If you’d like to find out more about becoming a partner, contact us at [email protected].
