It’s been a busy year at the CLC. We worked with almost 8500 young people, 1300 teachers and 550 parents.
We expanded the team and extended our work. We won the NAACE Impact Award for services to schools, secured several bids including funding from IBM and the DfE and immersed ourselves in several pieces of significant research.
We supported trainee teachers from London South Bank University and the Institute of Education and delivered keynotes at various high profile conferences for universities, arts institutions and other organisations .
We established some new partnerships with the RSC, Southwark Cathedral and the Imperial War Museum and we’ve consolidated some older partnerships including a really fruitful relationship with IBM. We’ve explored some new technologies including the Oculus Rift and incorporated 3D printing into our core programme resulting in some fantastic projects. We got our hands on some old tech too working with colleagues from the Centre for Computing History.
And on top of that, we’ve helped many, many schools get to grips with delivering the new computing curriculum.
And it’s for these reasons that we felt justified in letting our hair down a little last week with a 70s -themed Christmas party
We’ve really enjoyed working with such keen schools and enthusiastic teachers and pupils.
We look forward to more of the same in 2015 and we wish you a very restful Christmas and a happy new year.
