Why we should all learn how to code


Coding is offered in many schools, but it is often considered with an ‘all or nothing approach’ – that is to say – ‘if I didn’t study computer sciences I cannot possibly work as a developer’. For many this is detrimental to their development in the subject. Lucia Gore, founder of Kozi wants to inspire 18-24 year olds to learn this essential skillset.


Kozi makes a field of study that can seem inaccessible – welcoming, friendly and fun. Learning to code, and the internships Kozi can lead to, can open doors and present opportunities that students may not even have imagined they would be interested in. Graduates of Kozi acknowledge they are inspired by the confidence a new skill gives them.

Kozi is for those that are keen to expand their reach but may not have had the chance yet. Our specially designed course allows each student to gain a fundamental understanding of the technologies being used in industry today, learning alongside friends in a safe and friendly environment.

We cater for all skill sets and have extension material for those with experience, but our syllabus is designed for complete beginners. Most of our students are either on gap years or at university (most not studying/have never studied computer sciences). This 5 day course is not just for people who would like to become a developer, but for anyone wanting to gain a skill, and who might be considering working in the tech industry in any capacity.

Just having an understanding of the concepts and basics of coding is important in today’s world where technology plays such a massive role, and this course helps students to hold their own in conversation and in the workplace with regards to the technical side of a business/website or app.

Expert coaching, family run accommodation, and dinner parties each evening make for a fun and productive week of learning and collaborative research. Students stay onsite and all meals and tuition are also onsite – this encourages friendships and helps to cement the knowledge with a mutual goal for all students throughout the week. Kozi aims to help students not just whilst they are onsite but going forwards with their respective careers when they leave university.

There are a variety of companies that are keen to offer internships to our graduates, given the skills they will have learnt. These range from banks, to fashion houses, to small start-up brands and sports technology companies. Kozi Graduates will be in a fantastic position to reach out to our growing network of developers, designers, entrepreneurs and businessmen/women who are enthusiastic about helping young adults find their feet in the tech industry. With guaranteed ongoing support, our students and alumni will have a safety net and mentors they can rely on to help achieve their career goals.
