London Subject Matter Experts in Computing – London SMEs

STEM Learning on behalf of the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) have appointed a number of Subject Matter Expert (SME) consultants to work with schools and colleges across England to promote the development of their computing curriculum. SMEs support a number of primary and/or secondary schools and colleges within their assigned region, working closely with their appropriate NCCE Regional Delivery Partner and others.

Schools and colleges that are not currently offering GCSE computer science, or those which are based in Local Authority Districts 5 and 6, are eligible for fully-funded support from a subject expert to help improve their delivery of computing. Contact your local Subject Matter Expert.

Prior to becoming a secondary Advanced Skills Teacher (AST), I was a programmer analyst for a large software house and web journalist for the BBC in Liverpool. After moving to London, I started my teaching career and I have never looked back. Now with over 14 years of teaching experience in ICT and Computing, I am fortunate enough to be able to combine two fields that I am most passionate about, Technology and Teaching & Learning.

For the last 6 years, I have been working as a consultant and supported hundreds of schools from both Primary and Secondary sector. Being an SME for Stem Learning and NCCE, I am able to provide fully-funded support to schools within Computing. Please contact me on the details above for further information and discuss the bursaries available for your school.
