We've had a great experience so far with Code School Finland! For a school looking to implement coding across KS1-3, but with no teachers trained to teach the subject, CSF has provided the necessary training and materials to get us started, with progression clearly built in. Our trainers and consultants, Sirkku, Jussi and Kaisu, have been friendly and most accommodating. They understand the unpredictable environment in schools, and are on hand to support with onboarding when we have changes in staff deployment. Should we have any questions, they are also quick to respond. We are just 6 weeks into our first year teaching CSF's brand of coding, but have already received some positive feedback from teachers, parents and students! One suggestion I would like to put forward, is to perhaps have more consistency in the format of each module. For instance, it would be very helpful for teachers' planning if each module has a list of learning outcomes provided that teachers can use to assess progress, like a syllabus document.

Yao-Jin Choong found Code School Finland:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Student books and teacher manuals are provided with lesson plans and suggested activities already laid out.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    The Pedagogy training course is a good introduction to student-centred teaching practices for new teachers, and a good refresher for seasoned teachers. The module-specific training courses empower teachers with the confidence to deliver the content.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Student books are colourful and engaging, with clear colour-coded instructions. These can be used by teachers are independently by students for learning.
