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.
Many of you may have noticed that Aspin’s Login newsletter has taken on an electronic format and landed in your email inbox, rather than on your desk. After much deliberation, we decided to do right by our environment and retire the paper based version for good. The birth of aspinblog.com at the beginning of 2014 created a hub for all our news, stories and marketing and we felt it was the perfect home for Login, too.
