Welcome to Jam Coding
“Jam Coding have been working in Primary Schools since 2014 delivering computing and coding programmes that help children and young people engage in the computing curriculum. We recognise that good computing knowledge and proficiency is a life-skill. Our workshops are developed in conjunction with O2 and have grown to cover the entire curriculum.” R.Grogan, Director and Founder
Roger Grogan, CEO
Jam Coding was founded as a part of Jam Thinking in 2014. The idea was simple. As a marketing agency, that was founded by a teacher and coder, there was an obvious skills and knowledge gap in the provision of quality computing provision for children, parents and schools in the UK. Jam Coding grew and was setup as it’s own company in 2019. We see good computing knowledge and proficiency as a life-skill, our workshops are developed in conjunction with O2 and have grown to cover the entire curriculum.
“We are proud to have helped to raise the computing experience of thousands of learners whilst helping them stay safe online. Through the sheer demand for our services we have been able to see the huge disparities from school-to-school in resources and knowledge to deliver computing properly.”
“Jam Coding have now developed a number of services and products to help communities to access quality educational programmes at affordable prices. We are able to teach our core values of Create, Collaborate and Communicate with Confidence in fun, interactive workshops that teach numerous coding, computing and creative skills.”
“It is only a matter of time before Ofsted pick up on the disparities in computing education. At that point Jam Coding are ensuring we are well positioned to help schools nationwide. What an exciting time to join us.”
Becky Jackson, Area Manager
Becky Jackson has worked for leading technology academic institutions and has overseen the growth of the provision across her area. Becky is passionate about the difference the workshops make to the communities they serve.
“The appetite for Jam Coding is phenomenal. For parents and schools to know they can access our fun, safe and educational programmes is a refreshing change from the usual menu of programmes and services they are able to access. The business model is unique and means that we can help schools with their entire provision without the need for heavy investment in up-skilling and resources.”

Why Jam Coding…
We have been providing schools and children with innovative computing programmes and initiatives for over 5 Years . Over this period we have constantly updated, improved and refined our workshops and delivery model to what it is today.
With our extensive experience of designing and delivering workshops we have an outstanding reputation with the schools we work with. Year-on-year, term-on-term, we are growing and reaching more and more young people, helping them to enjoy and understand Coding and Digital Skills.
Goals and Objectives
Technology is advancing at an incredible rate, and we’re just getting started! Jam Coding believes that there’s never been a more exciting time to be involved with Science and Technology. Every child deserves the chance to unlock their innate, unlimited capacity to learn.
Whether or not they pursue coding, programming, designing, videography or any other digital skill as a career, we want to provide kids with inspiration and skills that will help them start their journey.
We also help children stay safe online
eSafety is a growing concern for the government. Schools, Colleges and Community Groups are targeted to have an impact in helping young people stay safe online. Our eSafety workshops were designed in conjunction with O2 and offer a 360 degree approach to eSafety.
These workshops have had a huge uptake and are another example of the continual product development that allow Jam Coding to have a positive impact on the communities that they work.
