Due to the current climate with the COVID-19 situation, we have made the decision to postpone Communication Works South and North in May 2020. We will update everyone in due course.


Dear CENMAC Community,

Due to the recent government advice we have unfortunately postponed all visits until further notice.  We would like to support schools as much as possible in the coming weeks and are arranging online and remote support where possible. 

While schools are busying trying to arrange supporting students remotely we thought we would share some key free software and resources which could help.

We have also been busy upgrading a number of old  windows 7 machines into windows 10 and would like to donate to any families/students who maybe without technology and could benefit from a laptop. If you know anyone who would fit this need please email
