Over 4,500 teachers have now engaged with the Computer Science Accelerator, a professional development programme, leading to a national certificate in computer science subject knowledge. Among them are teachers from the Delta Academies Trust, which runs 51 schools across Leeds, Doncaster, Harrogate, Scunthorpe and the North East. The team at Delta Academies has encouraged teachers to engage in the CSA, with 40 now taking part in the programme.
Dave Hewitt, principal of Manor Croft Academy in Dewsbury, part of the Delta Academies Trust, has encouraged teachers to take part in the CSA.
“This last year has really highlighted the importance of good computing and digital skills, with online education and the growing demand from employers for technical skills. We’re thrilled that nearly 40 teachers are taking part in the CSA. We know that our young people will benefit from that enhanced training; we hope to train all Delta teachers who deliver computing across all our academies.”
“Here at Delta, we recognise the importance of computing and equipping our staff and students for a future where tech will play an increasingly vital role.”
