£78m government funding for world-leading computing education: FutureLearn plays a role in online delivery. 

The Department for Education announced yesterday afternoon £78 million in government funding to make sure every child in every school in England has access to a world-leading computing education.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation, STEM Learning and the British Computer Society, will establish a new National Centre for Computing Education, and deliver a comprehensive programme of support for computing teachers in primary and secondary schools. This will include resources, training, research, certification, and more.

Stephen Somerville, MD, Government and Employers said,

“We’re passionate about transforming access to education and are keen to play a role in addressing the digital skills gap. This project goes to the heart of that so we’re delighted to be working with The Raspberry Pi Foundation to provide high-quality online courses as part of this initiative."

Stephen continued, "Digital has an important role to play in enabling education at scale; we’re proud that’s being recognised here and proud to be chosen as their online learning partner.”
