The presentation will look at the opportunities at the present time and in the future for Computing, and provide key pointer to the skills that are required to undertake a career in related areas, including covering the key areas related to computer security (which are included in N5 and N6).
Along with this Bill will outline the results of the work undertaken on the Bright Red Publishing Digital Zone related to Computer Science, along with an analysis of engagement within the on-line environment, and on future developments.
