What we do
The programme has a wholistic approach to the improvement of computing education, everything from teacher CPD, to engaging classroom resources and innovative careers education
In response to an outdated ICT education and with recommendations from the NextGen Skills Report, the new Computing curriculum was launched in 2014. This was a breakthrough. By aiming to equip pupils with relevant digital skills, it would enable the next generation to succeed in a digital economy, whilst encouraging homegrown talent.
With such revolutionary news, reactions within the Education sector were mixed. Whilst some teachers jumped for joy (like us!), others felt uncertain about implementing the new curriculum.
Digital Schoolhouse was ready to provide a solution.
With seed funding from the Mayor of London’s Schools Excellence Fund (LSEF) and expertise from Mark Dorling and Shahneila Saaed, the DSH programme was to be rolled out across the UK.
By helping teachers to explore and innovate ways to approach the new curriculum, as well as developing resources and CPD training, Digital Schoolhouse was welcomed with open arms.
With 8 Digital Schoolhouses in 2014, the programme has now grown to 29 Digital Schoolhouses, and with a projected reach of 15000 pupils and 1600+ teachers over the next academic year.
