Programming is one of the most important skills of the 21st century.
It is the skill of the future which will be used in every profession in 10 years' time. From financial markets to medicine.
Brain Development
Programming helps develop analytical skills and teaches the ability to build complex, logical constructions. Whatever profession a child chooses in the future, logical thinking will come in handy (and outside of work, too).
Help in Learning
At Algorithmics lessons, students learn not only programming but also physics, math, design, astronomy, architecture, and other related disciplines. We show that school subjects are interconnected with each other and with programming in particular. It is proved that children who have got basic programming knowledge do better at school.
Self-confidence
Algorithmics lessons build project thinking. In class, students learn how to create large, serious projects step by step by applying theoretical knowledge in practice. With the help of programming, it is possible to realise one's ideas and dreams, create a game, a cartoon, or activate a robot.
A Worthy Career
Today, 90% of all jobs require basic knowledge of IT technologies. Experts say that one in two jobs in Australia will require high-level programming and IT skills within 15 years. Even if a child is not going to be a professional programmer, any employer will highly appreciate their knowledge in this field.

How Algorithmics classes work
Our training program was developed by an international team of educational experts, including Derek Brin, the world-renowned teacher of programming for children and author of textbooks on creative programming translated into 7 languages.

The quality of our educational content is crucial to us. Every week, experienced educational experts from Algorithmics update our current programs by studying and applying the best global practices and approaches to teaching programming to kids.

Our proprietary online platform allows us to track students' progress and create an individual study path for each student, taking into account their individual abilities.

Class format:
• Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes.
• Class capacity: from 8 to 12 students.
• Age of students: from 7 to 12 years old.
• Students do not sit at the computers the whole time. They also paint, calculate, create, and do group projects. The classes follow a general storyline, the launch of a spacecraft to Mars.
• Parents know what their children are doing. After each lesson, parents receive an email sharing what their young programmers learned that day.
• By the end of the course, students will have created their own projects, such as a game, cartoon, or interactive book.
• Enrollment is open year round.

• Students do not write code. Instead, they set commands using pre-set coloured blocks. This makes learning programming simple, understandable, and fun.

• Every student learns the material at a different pace. The Algorithmics system monitors students' progress and makes tasks more complicated if the students cope quickly, or offers additional similar tasks for those having difficulties with the material.

• Students receive points for completing tasks, which increases their "level." With this approach, students endeavour to work better and faster and they end up better remembering the material without even noticing it.

• You do not need a super-powerful computer to use the system. All you need is an internet connection.
Our Teachers
We conduct three stages of interviews to find the best specialists in programming teaching for children. Every one of our teachers has experience working with children, is a professional in programming and coding and, most importantly, is passionate about the project and sincerely wants to teach children how to program.
Before the teacher begins to conduct classes, they go through additional training and receives detailed guidance. We continuously monitor our teachers' work and our students' progress, and we organise training programs and seminars for teachers to improve their professional levels in programming, psychology, and teaching.
Our team is growing. If you are passionate about teaching, like programming, and want to share your knowledge, please send an email to info_au@alg.academy.

The fees on your invoice may not be altered for any reason.

Tax invoices are emailed/sent to you one week before the end of the booking period that you are currently enrolled in. To secure your position for the following 5 classes, payment must be made by the due date.

If you are not able to pay on time but wish to be enrolled in the program, please, contact us info_au@alg.academy to discuss available options.

In the event of a class cancellation, you will not be charged for that class.

Cost
4 classes (1.5 hours each) are $160 (inc GST). Regular price.

Discounts
8 classes (1.5 hours each) are $300 (inc GST). 6.3% off the regular price.
12 classes (1.5 hours each) are $420 (inc GST). 12.5% off the regular price.
For 2 or more siblings, we provide additional 10% discount per person.
If you bring a friend, both you and your referral get one class for free.

Refunds
In case if a student is unable to attend one class, no refunds are available. Algorithmics will provide to the student the full access to all class materials online. One-time absence will not affect the student performance.

In case if a student is unable to attend two or more classes but willing to continue the course, the price paid for the second and subsequent classes that are missing will be transferred to the next booking period.

In case if a student is unable to attend two or more classes but not willing to continue the course, the price paid for the second and subsequent classes that are missing will be fully refunded.

In case if Algorithmics Australia cancels a course or remainder of a course, students will be refunded the full amount of the number of cancelled classes.

Class Timing & Schedules
Classes are timed on the teachers watch. Please ensure you are always early to your class to ensure you are not missing out on any class time.

The teacher will always endeavour to start and finish your class on time. In the event of a class starting late due to the instructor, the class will not be cut short, it will be extended to ensure students get the whole time that they paid for. For example, if the teacher is 5 minutes late starting your class, your class will finish 5 minutes later than scheduled.

We reserve the rights to cancel the classes at any time. In case we cancel the classes, we will notify you beforehand and refund the cost of cancelled session/sessions.

Refunds are issued by direct deposit only.

Public Holidays
Classes are not held on official Public Holidays.
Classes are not held during school holidays.

Absence
If you know you are going to be absent for any reason, please inform the office or your teacher.

Equipment
We provide laptops and all necessary equipment to our students. However, if you feel more comfortable working with your own laptop, you may bring it with you.

For Algorithmics classes, students need any laptops or desktops with an Internet connection.

Tablets do not support using software.

Supervision
Algorithmics teachers will supervise the children during the class time only. Supervision before and after the class is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Algorithmics Australia is not responsible for children outside of the scheduled class.

Please, pick up your child on time.
