codetodayCLUB

Our approach is to treat coding as a serious subject, in an academically thorough manner while still ensuring that students are engaged right from the start. For this reason we run courses rather than drop-in sessions as this enables us to cover material in a systematic manner in the same way that other subjects are taught at school.

codetodayCLUB is an extension to these courses in which students choose a project and work on it in a more independent fashion, with our instructors guiding them through all the stages of programming: planning, coding, testing and fixing errors and bugs. This allows students to consolidate the knowledge they have learned in the course and gain confidence as they become independent programmers.

Our instructors will guide students to ensure the projects they work on are at the right level for them. 

Support after the course

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.
