25 Apr 2013 02:45 PM

Education Minister Elizabeth Truss yesterday announced more than £2 million of funding so the best computing teachers can help train thousands more to teach the rigorous new curriculum.

Each master teacher will pass on their skills and subject knowledge to 40 schools - so that computing teachers in 16,000 primary and secondary schools will be in position to deliver the computer science element of the new computing curriculum and the new computer science GCSE. This continuous professional development programme will enhance the preparations that schools will already be making so they can deliver the new curriculum.
