Technology in schools will no longer be micromanaged by Whitehall,” Gove said back in 2012. “By withdrawing the [current ICT] programme of study, we’re giving teachers freedom over what and how to teach.”

 

The new programme was drawn up by members of the British Computer Society (BCS) and the Royal Academy of Engineering, with a fresh emphasis on computer science, and specifically on coding and computational thinking. It’s a move that could redress years of neglect and close an urgent IT skills gap, but are schools ready to handle the change?
