Discovery Course – 2 Months
Discovery course is all about finding out what coding is in a space of 2 months. If your child is unsure about coding, this is the correct course to be on! We will be using a popular block-based visual programming language called Scratch to introduce coding to children ages 7-11.
In every lesson kids are given homework to encourage them to learn independently. Homework’s in this course can be facilitated by parents if needed. Around 4/5 hours’ worth of independent study.
Classes will have maximum of 13 children.
This course is not only about coding, but we support children to unleash their creativity. Our course also encourages them to improve their presentation skills and other softer skills.
The course will provide your child with an Arts Award Discover certificate!
To achieve an Arts Award Discover, children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of coding.
This certification will be the building blocks to achieving the other certifications in Arts Award. With the final outcome of gaining 16 UCAS points, when completing our Gold Course.
