11 - 17 years 4 - 6 students to a teacher Week-long camp, Mon to Fri

This course introduces your child to a very advanced, yet easy to learn programming languages – Python. It’s safe to say that many apps we use today have been built using Python – Instagram Web, Netflix, YouTube, to name a few! This course teaches the fundamentals of coding, and creates a solid foundation to solve more complex real-life problems.

Choose this course if your child is new to Python or has done a few hours of Python before. Or, they have a good understanding of block-based platforms like Scratch, and would like to start exploring text-based programming languages.

I loved making projects from real-life like the COVID-19 case predictor, so cool!​
Liam, 13 years
My son loved this course. This has sparked his interest and got him thinking about lots of coding ideas. Very communicative teacher.
Marco, Liam's dad
My daughter says that the teaching is inspiring, fun, engaging and very different to other types of learning.

FAQs

I get coding. What is Python?

Python is a text based programming language that is widely used today in the most successful tech companies such as Google, Netflix and Facebook. In fact, YouTube and Instagram have been written in Python.

My child already knows a bit of Python, is this course right for them?

We tend to focus on diving deep into the basics - so that the foundation is strong to then take on harder challenges. If your child has done, say a term of Python in school, this course is still the one for them. If you are still not sure, please feel free to call us on +44-75398-90926 and we'll help you decide.

We run advanced courses too, even though we don't actively advertise them.

What are the pre-requisites for the course?

Not much, apart from being curious. And oh, did we tell you that you really don't have to be a genius to learn how to code. Especially in Python.

How many teachers would you have in a class?

We will have no more than 6 students per teacher, ideally between 4 and 6, to maximise both learning through collaboration with peers and personal attention from the teacher.

I already know C/C++/Java. Is this course relevant for me?

Absolutely. You will learn how to code in Python and appreciate how powerful it is. It's a great tool to have in your arsenal. Having said that, if you are already a Java/C/C++ expert, then you should really join our highly-tailored weekly Python classes, instead of our camps.

Do you have a Java course?

Not yet and at the moment, it's not in the works either. That's not to say Java is not fun. Python, in our opinion, is superior in many ways and the language of choice.

Do I need to know Scratch? I already know Scratch

Scratch is not a requirement, but if you already know Scratch, you will absolutely love Python and its power. A text based programming language such as Python is the logical next step from Scratch.

Should I rather start with Scratch?

Different students have different learning styles. Scratch is a visual programming language designed to teach kids how to code, so it might be more suitable for you. Once you have learned Scratch, you can always move on to Python, which is used more widely and not just as an educational tool.

I want to know more. How can I get in touch?

We would love to hear from you. Please call us on +44-75398-90926 or email us at learn@rivalearning.com or simply click here to get in touch.
