Alternative Education Provision

About the Program

We take great pride in introducing our new Alternative Education Provision to students who have faced permanent exclusion from traditional mainstream educational settings, ensuring that they receive a high-quality education.

The local authorities have a power to arrange education provision, where it is not already available for pupils. It is our foremost responsibility to ensure students receive an educational experience equivalent to what they would typically receive in a mainstream school environment.

At School of Coding, our students have the opportunity to pursue studies in English and Mathematics, ranging from Entry Level 1 to 3. We offer a diverse range of courses including Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) education and technology related subjects to further enrich their educational journey. Upon completing their studies, learners have the flexibility to choose between direct entry into the workforce or pursuing vocational training supported by The Work College

Our Approach

Discover School of Coding’s Alternative Education Provision. We offer transition and re-engagement into education and employment, providing Coding and Computer Science tuition in small groups and one-to-one settings, whilst covering core subjects needed for future prospects. As part of School of Coding Alternative Provision, we offer employment support after education through our brand The Work College. This ensures a smooth transition into the working world which can be uncertain and ever changing. Our approach fosters positive relationships, empowering students using praise and encouragement which is underpinned by our set of values.

Our Key Values

Always have the belief we will create coders who will find solutions to the world’s biggest problems.

To be committed to using our skills and resources to create positive change in the world.

To encourage our students and staff to think creatively and push boundaries.

To never give up no matter how difficult it may seem.
