Learn to code in Python
Codetoday specialises in teaching programming in Python to students of all ages. We offer a variety of courses for those looking to develop coding skills to enhance work opportunities, supplement school learning or simply for fun. Our experienced instructors have been trained by codetoday to deliver courses using Python, one of the world’s most popular coding languages.
The codetoday curriculum introduces attendees to how a computer "thinks", guiding them through various modules in order to create confident, self sufficient coders. The emphasis is on developing skills, not just the ability to code, including critical thinking, problem solving and resilience. Further engagement and support is a key part of codetoday's approach, with detailed course material and expert support available outside of lesson time.

Courses for children and adults
All our courses are designed to get you coding quickly. We teach using Python, one of the world's most popular coding languages. Courses are supplemented through extended learning after the course with the codetoday team on hand to help. Beyond that the courses are fun, developing a raft of skills in students young and old.
We provide a full programme of online and in person courses with live sessions, on-demand video and practice resources.
Why coding builds skills beyond just coding
As Steve Jobs said "coding teaches you how to think".
Coding skills are becoming increasingly important for children and adults. They will be the defining skill of the next 20 years and beyond as our society becomes increasingly digitised. Coding is a brilliant medium for developing a host of other valuable skills such as creative thinking, problem solving and resilience building. We actively promote these skills alongside the nuts and bolts of teaching coding in Python.
All codetoday courses emphasise building skills that benefit the learner beyond coding.
Your Questions Answered
Who are these courses for?
Python coding courses are ideal for anyone young and old looking for an introduction to programming and to build valuable skills. Our adult courses are suitable for those working or looking to work in quantitative and data-driven fields such as finance, science and more. School holiday, after school and private courses for children provide continuous learning in coding with like minded individuals in a safe, supportive environment.
When and where do courses take place?
At codetoday we pride ourselves on the flexibility of our course options. We run online and in person courses. Our online courses are centred around a live, interactive session run by our experienced instructors as well as on-demand videos and further resources.
Who are the instructors?
Instructors at codetoday are excellent communicators with a range of experience from science to software development. The codetoday philosophy is that instructors should be both exceptional educators and highly proficient programmers in order to offer students the best learning experience.
How is codetoday different?
At codetoday the focus is exclusively on learning how to code. All codetoday courses are delivered in Python. The curriculum is designed to ensure course participants quickly grasp the concepts of programming and begin to write programs as quickly as possible. The emphasis is to learn programming not a programming language - programming is a mindset, a systematic and logical way of thinking aimed to solve problems.
Python is one of the world's most popular coding languages. It is widely recognised the best place to start learning to code as it's easy to read and write. Python though is not a watered down coding language. It is used by the likes of Google and Dropbox as well as being the default language for data scientists. It is used heavily in areas such as finance, artificial intelligence and machine learning. It is an amazing place to start. Codetoday's curriculum and lessons have been designed to make Python, a full-featured programming language, highly accessible and relevant to various applications.
What's included in the course
In addition to the live sessions course also include:
Course resources including the instructor's version of the code written during sessions, video tutorials covering key aspects of the course and detailed notes.
Ongoing support during and after the course with our six-month support package that is included in every codetoday course. You will be able to ask questions, share your code to get feedback or to get assistance with problems in your coding.
Instructions and support for installing the required (free) software required for the course.
"I appreciate your patient explanations and listening to all our crazy questions! I am so sxcited that I am finally starting to understand programming!"
– Morgan, attendee on Python course for adults
Codetoday courses are aimed at those who want to attend a concise course to get a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of programming and have access to online support after the course.
The emphasis in both courses for children and adults is to learn programming not a programming language – programming is a mindset, a systematic and logical way of thinking aimed to solve problems.
Not all adult beginners want to dive into a 12-week full time bootcamp aimed at producing professional software developers. Our courses for adults are aimed at those who want to learn coding as an additional skill to use in their current or future work.
