    ONLINE Python 4 DofE (age 13-17)

    The ONLINE Python 4 DofE course introduces attendees to a powerful, modern programming language that has a gentle learning curve along with lots of useful accompanying documentation. The nature of Python means you can write short programs really quickly, with the platform remaining flexible enough for its use to be limited only by the programmers imagination.

  • ONLINE Typing 4 DofE (age 13-17)

    ONLINE Typing 4 DofE (age 13-17)

    The ONLINE Typing 4 DofE course is for attendees either looking to take their first steps in learning how to touch-type, or looking to improve on their existing typing skills. Using a gamified approach to learning to type, the challenges start out simple and progressively become more advanced. Using games, levels, badges, stars and leader boards, attendees learn to type interactively, building up their muscle memory and increasing accuracy and word-speed. Note that unlike courses from other providers, these weekly sessions are led by a LIVE!, remote tutor who is able to provide attendees guidance in real-time, along with progress reviews during the sessions.
