Last week it was time for the staff at Aspin to be on their best behaviour as a group of 26 ICT and Computing teachers descended on their Romsey office. They came as part of a course organised by the Independent Association of Prep Schools, designed to prepare teachers to deal with the changes to the curriculum which have been triggered by the government’s decision to add more emphasis to computing and programming. This change has partly come about in response to companies like Aspin throwing down the gauntlet to the education sector to provide them with a continued supply of quality programmers.
Nathan Aspin (MD), along with his Vistage group, has recently completed some rewarding charitable work in southern Uganda.
The trip was organised by Chris Read, a fellow Vistage member. Chris had visited Uganda earlier this year, and was inspired to not only sponsor various community projects, including the setting up of a Music School, but also to return with his Vistage group.
