WHO WE ARE
The Academy of Code was founded in 2014 by a group of software developers who believed that everyone should have
the opportunity to develop technical skills, either to prepare them for further education or just to give them the digital
skills to thrive in the 21st century no matter what career they choose. For Enrolment and more details about the Academy
of Code visit our website, http://www.theacademyofcode.com/
We deliver an immersive curriculum, which offers students a pathway to build their skills year on year. In our experience,
exposure to full programming languages such as Java and Python leads to better learning outcomes which include
transferable skills such as computational thinking, creative problem solving and enhanced collaboration.
We believe in giving every student the opportunity and support to stretch and progress their subject knowledge at their
pace, while keeping a focus on the core learning outcomes. Our curriculum is built with differentiated instruction at its core.
1/ Understanding code will help you to learn the basic inner workings of computers. A sound understanding of code will
set you up for a lifetime of successful use of technology no matter what career you pursue.
2/ Improved computational thinking which includes the ability to communicate in a structured and logical way, as well as
problem solving in a methodical fashion.
3/ Improved creativity which allows you to think in a more “out of the box” way in a wide range of different situations. From
your understanding of code you will understand that there is a logical beginning, progression, and ending in every story
4/ Greater access to the job market. Most jobs now require basic IT skills whether in retail, hospitality, technical or
professional jobs. Coding specialists are well-paid and highly sought-after in all sectors of the job market.
These classes offer a strong foundation in coding through the Java-based Processing framework. Future terms will offer
foundation of coding knowledge from which to progress that student’s coding journey.
