What you learn
Unlock your inner software engineer with a course that teaches you the skills to understand, create and debug like a pro. This course will also show you how to apply those skills through various projects and challenges.
Get ahead at school
A popular choice for students taking GCSE or A Level Computer science. Learn the fundamentals of modern coding including data types, variables, functions, loops and object oriented programming. This course covers all of the coding elements of the GCSE and most of those included in the A levels.
The bigger picture
Fire Tech's tech-savvy, enthusiastic tutors will teach you the programming language behind tech behemoths like Facebook, Netflix and Spotify. Students learn the skills to become problem solvers and creators with the one of the most popular coding languages.
Learn one of the most in-demand coding languages in the world, used in start-ups, enterprise companies, and academic institutions. This is a top choice for students studying Computer Science for their GCSEs who want to take their skills to the next level in a fun and supportive environment.
Our code-loving instructors develop your programming proficiency by teaching you how to use variables, integers, floats, strings, loops, file I/O’s and data structures, as you work on your own challenge-focused projects. You will leave with the confidence to use the Python programming language independently.
While this is a beginners’ course, we do find that many teens who have already started to learn to program on their own find our “back to basics” approach very helpful as they fill in any gaps in their fundamentals.
This course is also available in part-time and online formats.
