Progression Through the Curriculum
Getting the basics right is very important in coding, and making sure that these fundamentals are very well understood is a key part of our curriculum. At each of our age groups we start with the basics in Level 1.
Progressing from the basics onto more advanced material is equally important. We guide students all the way from their Level 1 course up to whatever stage they wish to get to. We progress at different speeds in different age groups to make sure that all students learn the material at a pace that is suitable for them.
Our beginners and intermediate Live Online courses range from Levels 1 to 6, and beyond that we have a programme of Higher Level courses and workshops that focus on specific themes within coding.
What matters most is learning coding, not a coding language. The concepts and the way of thinking are the same or very similar whatever language we choose. However Python is very well-placed as a language to learn coding in. Unlike Scratch and other children-specific platforms, it is a full programming language used in the real world. But unlike other languages like Java or C++, Python is easier to learn and allows students to focus on what really matters: learning the key coding topics. Read more on how Python and Scratch differ.
What's included in the courses
All our Python coding courses for kids and teenagers are delivered by experienced instructors who have been trained by codetoday. Teaching focuses on making sure students understand the fundamentals of coding and learn how to become independent coders.
Small class sizes
An important part of all our sessions is the interaction between the students and the instructor. Our courses have small class sizes to ensure each student gets individual attention.
Additional resources and ongoing support
All our courses whether Live Online or In Person come with additional resources including videos and notes. We also provide ongoing support during and after the course as students carry on coding.
