It only seems like yesterday that codetoday's founder Stephen Gruppetta started teaching his first Python course to a small group of keen students in Hampstead. Fast forward a few years and codetoday has run private courses and school holiday camps for hundreds of students. Stephen puts the success down to a clear teaching philosophy that prioritises teaching real coding, using a real coding language delivered at a pace consistent with the students' ability.
Owing to the continued growth of codetoday, this autumn will see the launch of St Albans coding courses, covering the city and surrounding area. Private courses for small groups of friends will be available first, with holidays camps to follow. The team are excited about the next phase of growth as it represents an opportunity to help more students uncover a passion for coding and develop another tool to harness creativity.
Private courses from codetoday
Private courses are ideal for groups of friends and classmates who wish to learn coding together. The standard minimum number of participants for a bespoke private course is five. The codetoday curriculum focuses on teaching proper coding, guiding students through various modules in order to create confident, self sufficient coders. Further engagement and support is a key part of codetoday's approach, with project materials and expert support available outside of lesson time.
Scheduled courses from codetoday
Holiday courses are designed for students in year 3 and above who are ready to start exploring coding using a fully featured programming language. At this age students are ready to start moving away from children-specific platforms. These courses introduce them to coding with Python. As students progress, codetoday provide a number of follow on courses and codetodayCLUB sessions where students are free to explore projects of their own design with expert support from codetoday instructors on hand.
