CodeX is a social enterprise founded in partnership with the University of Nottingham aiming to inspire young people with autism by teaching them to code.
We deliver specialised coding courses to neuro-diverse young people through a variety of carefully tailored programmes.
We help students meet the demand for a more diverse workforce in both the technology sector and the wider working world.
We have built up strong partnership with our sponsors who help to enrich our ability to improve employability.
Only 16% of individuals with ASD are in full-time paid work
Only 32% are in some kind of paid work (full and part-time combined)
Over three quarters (77%) who are unemployed say they want to work
Four in ten say that they've never worked in formal employment
We run our courses in schools over a 5-week period with 10+ hours of content which teaches Python to our students.
We usually run hourly session but we are adaptable to suit the needs of our students
1-on-1 tuition and group sessions are also available if you want to take part independently of a school.
We also run courses for Non-ASD students too!
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
We also offer FREE taster sessions to give you a glimpse of what we offer and the way we tailor our course specifically for these children
These tasters introduce young people on the autistic spectrum to the programming world!

The tasks and detailed feedback have been particularly important to consolidate learning.

Safe, supportive atmospheres to facilitate learning and enjoyment.
I’m a second year Computer Science student on the Computer Science with a Year in Industry course.
Working with CodeX has given me the opportunity to teach a range of different school children over the past few weeks and share my coding skills with them. I’ve also actually learnt a lot from the kids while teaching them, and we all really enjoy the lessons, so it’s been a great shared experience.
Chloe Beck is a study abroad student from the USA studying at the University of Nottingham for the year. She is pursuing a degree in Data Science with an emphasis on biological data.
When she isn’t coding, she loves hanging out with her cats and dog and going biking with her dad. She also has a love for music and has been playing the trumpet since she was 10!
Hi, I’m Emma! I’m a fourth year Natural Sciences student at the University of Nottingham, specialising in Physics. I started learning to code in my first year at uni and now I enjoy using programming to solve scientific problems that can’t be solved analytically. I want to pass on the skills that I have learnt and give other people the opportunity to become enthusiastic about coding! Outside of uni work I love to play the piano and guitar. My main hobby is rollerblading, and I'm keen to get better at speed skating!
