Government looks to make ICT education ‘essential’ to curriculum

2011/12/21

“The government has said that computer science education should be brought into the new National Curriculum as an essential discipline.

Formulating a response to Nesta’s Next Gen report on reforming the provision of ICT and computer science subjects in schools, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) said that it recognises the importance of ICT.

It also agreed with Nesta that the UK’s ICT programme should be reformed to encourage more young people to study the subject and pursue IT careers.”
