Even when you're not using a computer, you're benefitting from computer programming. Every device from your smartphone to the systems that control the electricity grid in Nottingham and across the UK have been programmed. If you're interested in computer programming, software development, computing, or software engineering, here's how you can get involved.
Before you start learning a programming language, you should know a little about the history of computer programming and software. The first real programmed devices were Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine and Difference Engine. However, electrically powered modern computers wouldn't arrive until the early 1950s.
Initially, computers were programmed using machine code, the programming languages that the computers understand. However, higher-level programming languages were developed, making things easier (relatively) for the programmers. In the 1960s and 70s, a lot of major programming languages were developed and while they may have evolved quite a bit since then, a lot of the main concepts were devised during this time.
If you're interested in computer programming or software development, you might want to study a computer science degree at university. A computer science degree will usually cover both the theory and application of computing with students learning how computers work, how they're used, and the necessary programming skills to get them to work effectively.
A computer science degree will also teach you softer transferrable skills like teamwork and leadership skills, problem-solving skills, organisation skills, numeracy skills, and communication skills. Of course, you'll also learn about software tools and packages, programming languages, software engineering, network design and engineering, hardware architecture and construction, and multimedia design!
Nearly 90% of computer science university graduates go onto work or continue their studies and nearly 80% of those in work are in fields related to their degree like information technology. Furthermore, the average computer science graduate earns £28,000 a year, with entry positions starting at £23,500 per year and workers with a lot of experience earning closer to £40k.
If you want to get onto a computer science degree course, it's a good idea to study computer science or computing at GCSE and A Level. Fortunately, most schools will offer these courses. Computer science degree courses are also widely available and the entry requirements for these courses range from CDD to AAA at A Level. Most university courses require BBC at A Level.
Whether you're studying computer science at school, university, or on your own, you can get help with your studies from a private tutor. Private tutors offer lessons with their students in mind, meaning you can effectively learn or study at home at your own pace with resources and teaching that's tailored to you.
For those also studying computer science or programming at school or university, tutors can complement the education you're getting by focusing on the subjects or topics that you struggle with. They can help you to learn about computing in a different way, which is especially useful if you didn't quite understand what your teacher or university lecturer was trying to say.
Tutors can also help when the time comes to study for an exam. They can help you go back over your lessons from school or university and put together a learning plan that ensures you get the best possible results or grades.
If you've decided to look for help with computing in Nottingham, look for the perfect tutor on the Superprof website. You can find tutors teaching everything from academic subjects like maths, English, music, and physics to specific skills like data analysis, programming languages, software design, and management.
You can view each tutor's profile to see how many years of experience they have, the type of tutoring they offer, the level they teach, how much they charge for their lessons, and what their other students think of them. There are different types of tutoring available so think carefully about which will work for you, your budget, and how you like to learn.
Face-to-face tutoring is the most common kind of tuition offered and it allows the student to study a subject at their own pace with the lessons taught with them in mind. As they're the only student in the class, their tutor can tailor the teaching and the course to them and what they need to learn.
If you can't find any suitable or available tutors in or around Nottingham, you can always broaden your search to include online private tutoring. As long as you have a webcam and a decent internet connection, you can learn more about computing from tutors all over the world. While these aren't ideal for hands-on subjects, online tutoring can be just as effective as face-to-face tuition for academic subjects like maths, English, physics, and computing.
Group tutorials are a great idea for those on a budget. While you won't get to enjoy the tailored teaching approaches offered from the other types of tuition, you can share the cost of every lesson with the other students in attendance. This means that each student will usually pay less per hour than they would for a one-on-one class with their tutor.
Don't forget that a lot of the tutors on the Superprof website offer their first lesson for free. You can use these free lessons to try out several potential tutors before deciding on which one is right for you and your budget. Of course, rather than just contacting every tutor and arranging free lessons, it's a good idea to think carefully about what you want from your private computing lessons before contacting the tutors that look like they'll meet your requirements.
