Nominate a Charity or Organisation for Codetoday Bursary Places


Ever since codetoday started running Python coding courses for children back in 2016, we've been keen to be an integral part of our community, first locally in our corner of North West London where we started, and now across the whole of the UK and elsewhere in the world, too! We've always offered codetoday bursary places for those going through hardship. We're now extending this scheme further for National Coding Week 2021.


Nominate a Charity or Organisation


We're asking you, our clients, and other members of the codetoday community, to nominate charities or other organisations who work with children who would benefit from a coding course with codetoday.


We're looking to make the codetoday bursary places available to children undergoing hardship or who are otherwise disadvantaged.


As an example, we recently ran a free course for a group of children organised by an Autism charity. This allowed us to tailor the content and teaching style for the group to make sure they get the most from the course, which they enjoyed a lot!


Depending on how the charities and organisations have chosen to operate, we will either run a course specifically for them or make free places available on our standard half-term coding or weekly courses.

National Coding Week 2021


We're linking this to this year's National Coding Week. At codetoday, we have 52 coding weeks a year as we run our coding courses all year round. However, this year we're offering a bit more to celebrate this week. The additional places on the codetoday bursary scheme are one way we can contribute a bit more to the communities around us and mark National Coding Week.
