  • Useful guides for our trainees

How should I use the Syllabus?

As a teacher...

If you're reading this then you may be looking to attend or teach a class in the future. In each of the module sections of this website you will find a suggested lesson plan for your lesson. If you're new to CodeYourFuture this is a great place to start with our teaching.

However, you are also welcome to change, remix and re-create the content you find here as you wish. Over your time here you will get to know your specific trainees and will know what kind of content and teaching they need. We encourage you to innovate and experiment with the lesson plans you find here.

Every lesson has a set of Learning Objectives that we're trying to achieve in each lesson, as a teacher your goal to have your trainee achieve these goals throughout your lesson and the accompanying coursework.

Be sure to check out the Teaching Notes attached to every lesson for notes, slides and videos from previous teachers.
