Welcome to the first step of your journey become a Digital Leader.
Here at the Community Coding Club, we'll give you the necessary tools for developing a 'Computational Thinking’ mindset – the ability to tackle large problems by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable ones.
We believe the skills required for coding /programming, are not only immensely valuable career-wise, but also to your life. We’ll tell you how, a little later.
To engage effectively with a computer, you need the following:
- a logical mindset
- problem-solving mindset
- a mindset that sees errors as an opportunity to learn and improve
Considering the lightening pace of change in computing, the ability to code is not only an essential skill for young people, but one more and more adults are cultivating, as they begin to grasp the dire consequences of being left behind.
It's never too late to learn. You too can master technology.
Learning Outcomes of Our Introduction Course Include;
- Cultivate ‘Computational Thinking’
- Understand basic programming language
- Ability to write a computer programme
- Ability to create a computer game
- Develop a creative mindset
In a world that’s increasingly more dominated by an ever-present advance in technology, the digital world is one that must be as natural to young people as science, language, and mathematics.
To achieve this, we aim to provide every young student of every school in the United Kingdom, the opportunity to learn and develop programming skills; thereby not only empowering them to prosper in an ever-changing world, but also investing in Britain’s future.
At the Coding Club, students will develop the essential power of creative thinking, and fully imbibe the fundamentals that drive technology.
In collaboration with teachers and stake-holders of the education sector across the country, we’ve developed a practical and fun programme that’s designed to foster a generation of tech innovators; thereby harnessing a nation of ‘builders’ and ‘entrepreneurs’.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.

Alex: would you go and learn any other coding languages?
Neel: Yes! java script, java, how to use a language in different way.
Alex: Okay. Would you sign up to the Intermediate Course next term?
Alex: What sort of things would you like to learn there?
Neel: I hope to learn how to make new games, program robots
Alex: When you leave school what industry do you want to into?
Neel: I am not that sure.
Alex: What do you want to do when you get older?

Before relocating to the United Kingdom in August 2017, Segun was a Business Development and Customer Service consultant in Africa and recognised as one of the leading personal development coaches – coaching over 5,000 executives over a seven-year period. He co-designed and implemented the eighteen-month Guests Services Turn-Around Project for one of Africa’s largest and most prestigious hotels - Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos, Nigeria.
Working in retail over 10yrs and witnessing the evolution of the digital world made me realise, the importance of the computing skills. As a mother of one I recognised the advantages of the digital education in the early ages. Which is positively affects our children development in so many areas like problem solving, grammar, collaboration with others and building confidence.
A talented young man who has a strong passion for tech. When was 9 he had already made his first website, then continued to create a Java application at 13. Since then he has helped hundreds of children to have a better understanding of computers, coding, and virtual reality(I BELIEVE IN ACCELERATORS NOT IN BRAKES).
Learning to code and make my first website aged 14, awakened a passion for programming.
I would code hours on end!
My new focus is the effect of technology.
Whether we like it or not, technology is the future.
The best thing we can do is to control it before it controls us.
How is it changing the way we speak, listen, act with each other?
How is it contributing to social anxiety and numerous other issues holding young people back.
What are the effects on the younger generations?
There are many students playing extremely graphics games, watching graphic movies far above their age rating.
It is becoming far to easy to access sensitive material.
My other focus is employing young people in order to get them off the streets with the wrong groups of "friends", providing them a job,
responsibility and discipline with a mentor to guide them on the right track.
