Inclusion in the classroom

Diversity and inclusion

We believe that every individual, and group of individuals, should feel included and encouraged when engaging with computing education. We make sure that diversity and inclusion is integral to our planning, our programmes and materials, the way we work and how we behave. Within a culture that champions diversity and promotes inclusion, we know we are better able to advance our vision.

Our offer

We provide teachers with a comprehensive range of evidence-informed, high-quality support, including free resources and training courses. Funding is available, including subsidies, to support supply cover for continuing professional development - to help them become inspirational computing teachers.
