Weekly Students

Daniel loved the Beginner Coding online module. He was completely engaged in the process and was guided by the tutor whenever he was unsure of how to proceed. He can't wait to continue. The entire process of registration through to completion of the course was seamless and so professional. Thank you and keep up the excellent work!

The RocketHour Programme

Programme Overview

The RocketHour Programme is a weekly extra-mural running over the full course of a year. The programme is made up of 40 hour-long lessons led by a tutor who is constantly monitoring the progress of the 6 to 8 student in the class. Multiple weekly timeslots are available, so fitting this into your child’s busy schedule is a piece of cake.

Teaching for Understanding

Every lesson is designed to teach a specific coding concept that can be applied universally to any coding language. Through this method, we foster a deep, conceptual understanding of code in our students. This approach is in line with how Computer Science and Software Engineering are taught at universities around the world.

The RocketHour Tracks

All potential RocketHour students are carefully assessed and placed in one of three tracks. These tracks are designed to best support your child at his or her current coding ability. This ensures that your child is suitably challenged, gains confidence and builds a firm coding foundation.

Payments

The monthly fee for the programme is R1250 which is paid in advance of each month. This is paid for 11 of the 12 calendar months with a payment holiday offered over the month of December. There is a 15% discount on the monthly payment for any additional siblings enrolled. Cancelations can be made at anytime, for any reason, with absolutely no associated costs or penalties.
