Our mission and vision
We truly believe that every child and teen is perfectly capable of learning to solve problems, face challenges, develop and create new projects. And our main goal is to help them achieving this through programming and computational thinking.
Companies are looking for professionals who know how to solve problems. Our mission is to prepare kids and teens to face the world where they will live in. Computational thinking is the most valuable skill to acquire and you can develop this skill by learning to code.
Codelearn was founded by IT professionals who, after several years working in different start-ups in Barcelona, noticed an existing gap between the labour market needs and the abilities of college graduates.
Also, we wanted our own kids to learn programming and found no options that matched what we though it was necessary. That is why we decided to found Codelearn, a programming school that prepares kids and teens for the current and future world.
We decided to quit our jobs and open the first Codelearn academy. We started by testing all the existing programming languages and tools with kids and everything we learned from that experience helped us developing our own method and our online gamified platform where students can learn while playing. Learning with Codelearn is an adventure where students have to face challenges and situations at their own pace but always counting on their mentor’s help.
In 2020, we have more than 20 academies in Europe, with thousands of students attending in-person classes in our centres as well as online students from all around the world who are learning programming thanks to our online modality.
Our main activity is the after-school program, where we teach computational thinking through the Codelearn method in our own academies, schools and even companies that want to empower their employees with this important skill. However, we also organize parallel activities such as competitions and specialized weekly courses on Christmas, Easter and summer holidays.
We have our own academies and franchised centres, and we are willing to keep expanding the Codelearn method all over the world.
