Meet our Subject Practitioner Panels

The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) exists to support computing educators in developing their subject knowledge, pedagogy, and practice, whilst helping to reduce their overall workload. To help us meet the needs of computing educators, we work with a panel of teachers from a range of contexts to gather constructive feedback and ideas, and ensure that we’re always listening.

Panel membership

Panel members bring a wide range of experiences to help us represent teachers across England in a variety of settings. We work with teachers who:

  • Are teaching computing now, either as a specialist or not
  • Are interested in or planning to switch to teaching computing
  • Are training to become computing teachers
  • Have leadership responsibilities


Each panel member spends between 10 and 15 hours working with the NCCE each year: meeting, discussing, reviewing, and providing feedback on our work. For the most part, time is spent focusing on content and discussions relating to specific education phases. For their time and commitment, members receive a modest honorarium, and have the opportunity to positively affect our programme, which in turn benefits thousands of other teachers.

Joining a panel

We will periodically review our Subject Practitioner Panel memberships. If you're a teacher in England and would like to help support the work of the NCCE please express your interest in joining our panels here.
