Feedback and Testimonials
Hear from some of the parents and kids that have completed courses with Cocoon TECH:CLUB and find out why they love it!
Very high quality content...the content is highly reflective of contemporary thinking in the area of digital learning as it aims to develop pupils’ ability to create rather than consume digital content.

What Parents and Kids Say...
'She can see herself gaining the points as a motivator. She can set goals for herself, learn a few skills - and become more independent.'
Leagh, mother of 9 year old girl
It's great that they have a productive tool, that they can go to one safe place and learn all these things that they can use later on in life.
Lynn, mother of 14 year old girl
When my children are using Cocoon, they are more eager to show you what they are doing on [the computer]. They're more eager to share.
Lar, father of 16 year old boy
I like being able to make graphics and intros. It means I will be able to make my own YouTube videos some day - and be famous!
Ryan, 9 years old
I love that if you stuck or you need to ask someone a question, that there's someone there to help
Jayne, 14 years old
It's cool! The step-by-step videos make it easy to do.

What does 'Risk-Free' mean?
We are so confident that your child will LOVE our course that we will refund you in total if they don't, no questions asked.
Is the timetable flexible?
Yes. Whether your child is doing the live, or flexi-learning course - we operate a flexible timetable to meet your needs. Your child will have their own learning platform, with lessons made available every day over the duration of the course. Our step-by-step, visual lessons, supported by mentor videos that your child can pause, rewind and control mean that your child can learn in their own time, at their own pace while being fully supported. Our ‘Discussion Board’ allows them to chat ask questions and chat with mentors and peers at any time during the course.
What if my child can't make one of the live sessions?
All lessons come with a pre-recorded mentor video anyway - your child can play, pause and rewind in their own time. If they are doing the live course and miss a live session then they can catch-up using the flexi-learning tool, no problem!
What experience do Cocoon's tutors have?
Cocoon have taught over 10,000 students through in-class teaching, holiday camps and our teacher training service. All tutors have at least two years in-class teaching experience, are Google certified trainers, and have trained 100s of teachers.
If Cocoon are teacher trainers, does that mean that my child will cover this in school anyway?
Unfortunately not. If your child is in a Cocoon-supported school then they are definitely getting a better digital learning experience than children in other schools. However, TECH:CLUB was designed specifically with the knowledge that school curricula doesn't allow teachers to go anywhere near the depth of learning that we go into in the clubs, or the breadth of options we are able to provide.
