About the Computing Quality Mark
Schools that are able to show good practice in their computing curriculum and procedures can apply for the Computing Quality Mark, which is awarded by STEM Learning on behalf of the National Centre for Computing Education.
The first step towards gaining the mark involves an online application via the Computing Quality Framework website. Your Computing Hub will be notified automatically when you reach the required standard (level 4) across all the dimensions in the framework.
If there is evidence that the school has met the required standard, independent assessors will read through evidence and application submitted. The award is then made as appropriate, and their local Computing Hub notified. Successful schools receive an individually printed certificate and the right to feature it on their website.
If the school is unsuccessful, the asessor will inform them about any gaps that may need addressing.
The Computing Quality Mark is active for three years, after which the school will need to be re-assessed if it wishes to maintain the award.
