Coding Courses for 8 - 15 year olds (Python Coding)
July 2017

At CodeToday we prioritise teaching the foundations of programming and mastering the skills required to think like a programmer — communicating with a computer through coding is very different from communicating with other human beings.

It is not fun copying code someone else wrote, we therefore let the kids write the programs rather than do it for them. This means children can return home confident in their ability to open a laptop and write their own programs. 

These fundamental programming skills can then be applied to any application, whether writing games, manipulating data or developing apps.

All our courses

  • have small class sizes to ensure individual attention;

  • focus on understanding how to communicate with a computer through coding, which is the essential skill for a good programmer;

  • teach the fundamentals of computer programming thoroughly while making sure it's fun and engaging. We deliberately choose to teach Python programming on a computer rather than using other gadgets and devices that can distract from learning the basics of coding well;

  • include additional resources including video summaries, notes, and email support for the duration of the course and an additional four weeks after the end of the course.

Courses are centred around one or more projects including writing animations and games through which we cover the key topics in programming, including data types and data structures, conditional statements, control flow and functions, and focus on the skills required to plan and construct a computer program in an efficient manner.
