For students

What is codezoners?

Coding skills have never been in higher demand, but traditional computer science courses are often costly. At codezoners you’ll learn to code while getting paid and you’ll meet people in a fun, collaborative environment. During the 9-month apprenticeship you’ll be taught exciting technologies for two days a week. Three days a week you’ll get a work placement with a technology company while earning above the London living wage (£10/hour) which is just under £1,000/month for three days of work per week.

Who is this for?

Anyone above 18 who is excited about code. No previous coding experience necessary. All we ask is for enthusiasm to learn and work with other people.

What will I learn and how?

You will learn the latest technologies while programming games and applications in Java, web services and web sites with Python and HTML/CSS. You’ll also use Javascript to create impressive visualizations and you’ll create prototypes on the Raspberry Pi and Arduino platforms. Often sessions are built around a creative theme and it will feel like you’re playing a game, not sitting in a classroom.

What can I do after codezoners?

After graduating, some alumni have stayed on with their companies. This is up to them and their company to decide and it’s not mandatory. Some have gone on to study computer science or design & coding at other universities or at Ravensbourne while others have moved on to other tech companies.

Who is teaching and where?

The instructors are university lecturers with doctorates in computer science who have worked professionally in creative coding for many years. They both have a lot of experience teaching computing novices and are vert enthousiastic about showing young poeple the expressive uses of computation.

Coding classes take place at Ravensbourne, the prestigious institute specializing in technology and media in North Greenwich. Its award-winning, state-of-the-art facilities are the ideal learning environment. For details about the facilities and location click here.
