Phoenix Community Housing are offering a free six-week coding course for residents, starting on 15 September! Dive into the world of coding in a fun, creative and informative way.

Did you know, careers in coding earn an average of £57,478 per year? Learn JavaScript, Bootstrap, HTML5, CSS3 and Database Management with SQL, essential skills for web development. By the end of the course, you will be able to build responsive webpages, online games and mobile apps!
