Key stage 3 Key stage 4
Free online course Join now 2 hours per week

On this course, you’ll explore Python programming at an intermediate level. 

You’ll discover how to break down problems into smaller parts, and then design and apply algorithms to data. You’ll also explore list structures and their various uses. 

Ultimately, what you learn will build upon your foundational Python skills - preparing you to progress onto more advanced programming.
