In our busy and technology focussed lives it is becoming more important for the next generation of school leavers to have an understanding of code. Nearly all industries today have an element of technology to them, whether that be their administration apps to manage staff, their tools they use to hire people, or their products.
Python is a good language for beginners because it is easy to read and there is plenty of documentation, online lessons. It also has a great community, including a women-led community. Codecademy is a great resource for learning to code with plenty of different paths to choose from, I wrote my first-ever line of code using Codecademy in 2014 and fell in love with it.
