Why we teach online…

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 46 countries and 15 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.

At your pace, not ours

Our courses are designed with flexibility in mind. We know that people get busy with work or freelance, so if you don't finish a course in exactly the amount of time, that's cool, it will still be there for you. We never turn off access.

Dip in and out, or revisit them whenever you're ready to start learning again.

You don’t have to learn alone

Learning any new skill is difficult, especially if you’re trying to do it by yourself. As part of a course, you’ll have access to the help you need if you get stuck and reviews to help your code get stronger

It can be hard to learn best practices through Googling alone so every SuperHi project has a strong foundation that makes it easier to build upon. We also review your work to make sure everything is clean, maintainable and on track - no spaghetti code allowed!

We’re here to support you if you get stuck, either with any SuperHi project, any homework or even one of your very own self-initiated projects.
