Coding is for everyone – easy coding lessons

Introduction

Code powers our digital world. Every website, smartphone app, computer programme, calculator and even microwave relies on code in order to operate. This makes coders the architects and builders of the digital age.

Over the next 10 years it is estimated that there will be 1.4 million jobs in computer sciences and only around 400,000 graduates qualified to do them.

Jobs not directly linked to computer sciences – such as banking, medicine and journalism – will also be affected by the need for at least an understanding of programming and coding.

Who is it for?

Primary and secondary school teachers who would like to learn to code and integrate coding activities in their classroom.  Participants should know basic English and basic use of Internet browsers.
