Why We Started

In 2018, we set out to combat the startling statistic: only 12% of the ASC community were in full-time employment. That’s when Coding with Codex was born. Initially focused on providing industry-grade coding education to the neurodiverse community, we soon realised the vast potential of our mission. Our founding team experienced firsthand the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to education and knew there was a better way. No matter if you’re neurodiverse, come from a low socioeconomic background, or belong to a marginalised community, everyone deserves the support they need to succeed.

Starting as an Enactus Nottingham project, our initial mission was clear: address the employability challenge faced by individuals with autism in the UK. But as we delved deeper, we saw an even greater opportunity. The world of tech was moving rapidly, and we didn’t want anyone left behind. While not everyone might end up as a software engineer, the invaluable skill of coding shouldn’t be exclusive. Our philosophy?

Three Steps ahead

Every instructor at Coding with Codex is either a current programmer or has recently graduated. We believe the best learning happens when the teacher is just a few steps ahead, bringing in fresh, relatable insights.

Community first

Coding can be a challenging journey. That’s why we built our community platform. Some online forums can be intimidating, especially for beginners. We wanted to create a space where learners feel safe to explore, ask questions, and yes, even fail.
