Why we teach online…

Pencils and paper flying around a set

After teaching at General Assembly, I started a code school in London called Steer. We held 5-day courses where students would turn up to our classroom on a Monday morning and leave on a Friday evening. I would stand in front of the class teaching the same material, week in week out, and over time, I noticed so many of the tiny issues of running a classroom-based school.

It was strange that we were teaching digital skills but not using any of the innovations that the same technology gives us. When I left Steer to start SuperHi, I wanted to take the best parts of an in-person classroom and use the internet to make the experience even better.

SuperHi is a more affordable, accessible way to learn. You're not paying thousands of dollars extra because we rented a classroom in a prime city location. We teach you wherever you are — our students are in 90 countries and 16 time zones!

We call it ‘asynchronous learning’. You don’t need to be there at a certain time. Whether you’re a quicker or slower learner, learning is at your pace, not ours. You can ask any question without feeling embarrassed in front of a group, and there’s no need to quit your job to skill up.

Just like our students, the SuperHi team is distributed globally which means we hire the best teachers in the world. You’re not being taught by some guy who happens to be available to stand in front of a class at that time in your city.

Learning anything creative shouldn’t feel like you’re in a military bootcamp. We get much stronger outcomes than whenever I taught in a classroom previously, and our results speak for themselves. Our students have gone on to change careers, increase salaries, go freelance and receive top awards for digital design.

Learn the SuperHi way.
