Spark4Kids are an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for the Duke of Edinburgh Award (Skills Section), and we offer computer coding and touch-typing courses for DofE participants. Due to Covid-19, these courses are exclusively available online and can be attended from the comfort of your home. The courses teach young people valuable life skills and are available for the Bronze and Silver Skills levels.

At Spark4Kids, we teach kids the basics of programming using computer games – encouraging them to experiment, make mistakes, learn from these experiences, and take ownership of the code they write – in their own time, and at their own speed.
