Abstract: Intensive curriculum reform is currently being undertaken in Wales across all school years and all subjects. However, political, geographical and socio-cultural issues have to date hindered any substantive educational policy or curriculum reform for computer science, due ultimately to the marked lack of teachers who are qualified and/or confident to teach the subject. In this paper we describe Technoteach, a University-based model for supporting prospective computer science teachers and thus drive the delivery of the evolving computer science curriculum across Wales. We argue its need, justify its methodology, and detail its impact.
