Not sure where to Start?

Here are some Quick steps to help you get Going with the CQF (Computing Quality Framework) Self-Review which helps to clarify your needs...


Register your school

The easy sign up process will find your school from some short prompts, and enable you to start the online review.



Assign a level for each of the seven strands of the CQF

Ideally, in conjunction with senior leadership, add a self-grade level for each of the seven self-review strands (level 1-5 / each level has a descriptor).

Don’t worry – this is NOT going to be assessed or used to judge in any way unless you think you’re at the stage where you’d like to be assessed for the Computing Quality Mark.

This is to kickstart the process and give you access to a whole range of free resources that are targeted to suit your needs.

(e.g. some schools assign a low level, and then review and change the levels over a longer period of time as they review and develop.)



Add text to each level

Add some text in each of the level boxes to reflect where you think you are at this point. This is just to get started and trigger access to a whole range of FREE resources.

Don’t worry,  this is just to get started and you can add and change text in these boxes over time as you self-review in future.
