5 key skills learnt from coding are programming, resilience, creativity, teamwork and critical thinking. These all contribute to understanding the growth mindset whereby “people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work” which “creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.” ( Dweck, 2015).

So why is Programming an Important Skill? 

Our courses ensure that there is something for everyone. Scratch, JavaScript and Python cover all levels for 8-16 year olds. Not only do these courses offer a brilliant skillset in programming but also a passion for coding that will open thousands of job opportunities in the future. Programming is a well sought after skill that a variety of industries look for with 67% of programming jobs being in industries outside of technology!

Programming Helps Build Resilience

By persevering with challenges, students will build resilience as they strive towards completing their end result. Programming is a brilliant way to build resilience because its trial and error procedure means students recognise that success comes from trying. It’s always great to see a student proud of what they have achieved and our courses bring success in fun ways – by teaching kids how to build their own video game! 

Our Courses Focus on Creativity.

From game design to building a savings calculator, your child will engage creatively with others to turn their imagination into achievements. All our courses are interactive tutor led meaning students can easily engage and have fun! Whatever their goals may be within the chosen course, our tutors cultivate a sense of being valued and a safe space to pose questions. This guarantees no limits to the depths of your child’s ambitions and creative possibilities. 

The Importance of Teamwork.

By allowing students to work together to build ideas they will build teamwork skills which will last for life. We surround students in an ambience of potential and creativity where action is promoted through peer encouragement. This motivates students because working together generates new ideas and highlights similar interests meaning everyone can succeed in fun ways and make new friends!

Coding and Critical Thinking.

Students can gain the skill of critical thinking because the step by step process of coding guarantees brilliant analysis and evaluation skills. By guiding students towards their educational freedom they are able to achieve their goals through perseverance and reflection when applying new methods.

Our mission is to bring these skills to your child so that they can grow and succeed whilst also doing something that they are passionate about.
