Computing education allows students to acquire the computing skills that are necessary to succeed in our modern society. The key part of the computing curriculum is computer science, which entails learning about the core principles of computation and information, and learning how digital systems operate and how to use this knowledge through programming.

Over time, students will obtain the necessary skills that are required to create systems, programmes and a range of content. The knowledge that is gained through a computing course will enhance a student's future prospects after they leave education and enter the working world. In addition, computing can also enhance other core academic subjects such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM subjects), as they are all interlinked with computer skills. Therefore, this means that students who study a STEM subject would also find a computing school trip beneficial to their own study. Consequently, you could join up with another teacher from another subject and take a combined group. For example, The National Museum of Computing is designed around the Computing curriculum at GCSE, A Level, and Level 2 or 3 equivalents. However, students can also benefit from the school trip if they are studying Mathematics, Design and Technology, Information and Communication Technology, and History.
