Advances in computing are transforming the way we work and our computer science specifications have changed with the times.
These specifications focus on the skills students need to progress to higher education or thrive in the workplace.
The AS and A-level specifications work alongside each other and our schemes of work will show you how the two levels can be taught together.
Our free resources, events and support, along with professional development opportunities, will help you to inspire and help your students fulfil their potential.
