We offer two free courses:
- Introduction to Coding — a ten-week coding course designed for beginners who want to get started with text-based coding. The best place to start is by reading our Quick Start Guide and then experiencing the course through the simple classroom for students
- Intermediate Coding — a ten-week follow-on course that is designed for students and teachers who have completed our introductory course. The best place to start is the simple classroom and the Quick Start Guide.
Schools and teachers who want free support to offer these programmes at their Australian secondary schools can learn about how to apply for support here.
We are currently testing a new industry project course that connects schools, teachers, and students to industry through project-based learning. This course is only available to schools who have been selected as pilot partners, and it will be generally available to all schools in 2022.
