Coding with Purpose Club

This course is full but sometimes we do have people that drop out or we run a second course if there is enough demand. It is definitely worth putting your name on the wait list as we offer places to wait listed children very often. Send your name and details to Patricia Morse and we will add your name to the waiting list.


We're seeking curious children who would love to learn to code, then use their skills to solve a real-world problem. Working together and with our expert tutor in four face-to-face sessions, children will develop their ideas for a computer-based solution to a problem in society or their community. Then they will be taught to code their concept in order to bring their solution to life. Children are not required to have their own computer as this will be provided - although they can continue the learning in their local library or at home if they wish. Children will engage their creativity, team-working skills, and their newly-learned coding skills - and have fun along the way.

The cost for the entire programme is £260, which can be paid in four instalments of £65 (bursaries are also available).
The price includes four 'Virtual Learning' sessions with our expert tutor and peer-to-peer network learning opportunities as well as the face-to-face Masterclass workshops.

The Masterclass sessions will run on 16 Feb, 2 March, 6 April and 4 May, the Virtual Learning sessions will be agreed with students and the tutor.
