Course description

New to Programming:


Becoming a programmer is a cumulative process that builds your skills day after day, year after year.

This package will provide you with the foundation needed to start a career as a computer programmer.

Programming offers a wealth of opportunities from basic website development through to mobile app or computer gaming programming.

Programmers are one of the most sought after positions in the UK with average salaries of £47,500 with 30% of advertised jobs currently paying over £60,000 (source: Reed)


Our ITonlinelearning Certificate in Programming (Level 1) is designed to provide you with an introduction to programming.

The skills and knowledge gained can be used to begin building your new career as a programmer.

This bundle of courses covers the programming basics and history of both C# and Python programming languages.

For brand new programmers, we recommend starting with the Python course first.


This Python course starts by going through how to download and install it. The course further shows you how you can use Python interactively at the command line as well as with a source code editor. We then look at the language itself by looking at some of the concepts behind syntax. We then look at comments, variables and the importance of indenting code to which is very important when coding with Python. We will go over keywords and built-in types. Lastly, we talk about documentation strings that become attached to objects and finish with a course summary.


This C# course covers the basics and history of .NET, and where Visual Studio and C# fit in. We explore a basic .NET program so that you begin to understand the structure of C# code and .NET. We then look into the C# language and why it’s such a strong tool for developing applications. Lastly, we will look at the course as a whole in the summary module.

Once completed, you will have the necessary programming skills to begin developing small applications.
