Why Coding

A Growth MindSet

Coding teaches you the skills and mindset that will last a lifetime. We get children excited to learn. Children who enjoy learning are curious, inventive and resourceful. These creative thinkers will hopefully become adults that solve real world problems and make a meaningful impact.

Did You Know

Did you know that learning to code and developing digital skills are part of the National Curriculum? The government are well aware of gap between the number of STEAM roles and the lack of people qualified to fill them. New STEAM roles are expected to double in the next 10 years: businesses warn of the economic impact if the skills shortage continues.

Coding is essential to help students thrive in a future driven by technology.  From self-driving cars, social media to surgeons performing robotic operations from other continents, tech – coding is revolutionising our lives. 

Our coders will Play, Code and Grow in their knowledge, ability and confidence.

We believe in using guided play to establish the early steps of coding, and STEAM

Our dynamic and responsive coding program combines unplugged play to help kids understand and translate programming concepts to the positive screen time.

Children are learning and creating in a playful creative way.

Coding isn’t about what you know.

It’s about what you discover through exploration, imagination and enthusiasm. 

Children create and build code to make their digital interactive stories, games and animations.

We bring the tech! and everything we need to deliver the sessions.

 

First Class Coders gives children the fundamental skills needed to start on their STEAM and coding journey. 

We expect students to grow and progress on to more complex  coding languages and platforms.

We are happy to advise and signpost First Class Coders to continue on in their learning journey.
