Becoming a Member of Naace has both practical and strategic benefits. Every individual and school concerned with using technology effectively needs access to the developing expertise of the Naace community.

In 2014 Naace is celebrating its 30th anniversary and we’ve asked some of our members why Naace is uniquely important to them, here’s what they said:


“New Advanced Concepts! Considered Encouraging!”, Miss Alison Phillips, Co-ordinator of ICT, E Learning & International Links, iMedia & Computing Technology Department, Stainburn School & Science College


“I have valued NAACE’s contribution to the field of computers in education since it first began in the 1984. At that time the membership was mainly for inspectors and advisors of computing but one of the unfailing approaches of NAACE has been to be inclusive helping colleagues within and beyond the NAACE community. When ACITT (The Association for Computing and IT Teachers) of which I was president was struggling to maintain its functions due to very overworked members, we merged with NAACE and were able to continue our work within a caring supportive organisation. If you are in the field of IT in Education then NAACE is the place for you.”, Margaret Cox OBE. FKC., Professor of Information Technology in Education, King’s College London Dental Institute and Department of Education & Professional Studies at Guy’s, King’s College and St Thomas’ Hospitals


“Every single engagement I’ve had with Naace and its members has been a 100% positive experience – the only membership I renew without any hesitation or doubt – #becomeamember #seeforyourself “Rob Curran, Director, Esito


“Take back the professional initiative with NAACE

Move forward with the National Association for the Advancement of Computer Education.

If you are interested in computer technology as much as computer science, NAACE is for you.”

“Thanks to the Naace Self Review Framework we provide first class ICT services to students, parents and staff”, Eddie Jefferson, ICT Manager, Berwick Academy


“It’s an eco-system of passionate and proactive practitioners, all driven by improving outcomes for learners and sharing the belief that technology – when used in the right way and for the right reasons – is an essential part of preparing our learners for life.  You’ll get more out of Naace membership with the more you put in … why would you not want to be part of that???”, Rob Curran, Director, Esito


“Helping to realise the future of Computing education today through well structured and researched conferences and accreditation procedures.”, Nick Tuer, ICT Teacher, Lime House School
