Course Content

This course is aimed at getting you started with coding in Python using the Raspberry Pi. It is aimed at anyone who has an interest in learning to code but has no previous experience. You will learn the basics of coding including:

  • Variables and arrays
  • Loops and conditionals
  • Specialist functions

This is a practical, hands-on course. You will learn by completing a number of simple programming tasks and then putting the skills and knowledge gained together to tackle a more complete project. This should give you the confidence to continue your learning beyond the course.


There is no recognised qualification associated with this course.


More advanced Python programming courses may run in the future depending on levels of interest.
