STEM Learning: New funding to address the gender balance in computing
‘The Department for Education has granted the National Centre for Computing Education £2.4 million of funding for the ‘Gender Balance in Computing’ research project.
This funding comes at a crucial time in computing education, after recent research by the University of Roehampton and the Royal Society found that girls represented only 20% of candidates for GCSE computer science and 10% for A level.
The Gender Balance in Computing research project will trial a number of new initiatives aimed at improving girls’ participation in computing.
Over 15,000 students and 550 schools across England will be involved in the trials, which will run from 2019–2022 in key stages 1-4.’
