At codetoday we focus on proper coding.
We use Python in all our courses.
Next Live Online Courses:
Weekly courses start June 9th
LIVE ONLINE COURSES
The live sessions for all courses run over four weeks. The on-demand content is accessible beyond the end of the course too. Courses start every few weeks and there are several course options at each age group..
Level 1 courses (for beginners to coding in Python)
Higher Level courses will be rolled out over the coming weeks
BRICKS & MORTAR COURSES
We'll be back soon…
We have currently suspended our bricks and mortar courses in London owing to the current COVID-19 outbreak. Please read our full COVID-19 statement here.
Our courses will return as soon as the situation permits, and these will run during term-time and during holidays. At present we expect to resume our Bricks & Mortar courses for our Summer courses, starting at the end of July, although this will depend on the circumstances over the coming few weeks.
Courses can be run as a private course for a group of friends, either during holidays or term-time. Private courses can be either held at one of the participant's homes or can be run remotely as online courses.
[Note: at present all courses are being run remotely owing to the current COVID-19 outbreak]
One of the activities we often start with to introduce Python to kids.
We accept childcare vouchers from all major providers. Please email us if you wish to book using childcare vouchers and we will provide instructions.
We believe that the most important skill to learn is to be able to think in the manner required to be able to communicate with a computer. This includes thinking in a logical and systematic way, problem-solving, and fostering a mindset in which errors are seen as a key part of learning — these are all key aspects of programming and skills that are relevant beyond coding as well.
Writing games is fun and engaging, and uses many key coding skills. This video shows one of the games written in our courses for 13-16 year olds.
We encourage students to carry on coding at home after the course, however coding can be tricky for the beginners as errors are not always easy to spot. For this reason, all our courses include a six-month support package during which students can ask questions as they program at home using our course management system. We can help them find solutions to their problems and understand the error messages they get and give feedback and ways of improving their code.
