I have personally found learning programming to be extremely difficult. When I was on placement last year in a Secondary School, I observed a Year 11 Digital Tech class where they were using Unity. I really like the class, however, it was obvious to see that when some students had to alter their code, they struggled. Programming cannot be rushed and I think introducing the basics before year 10 would help a lot of students that wish to continue with the subject past year 10. Student readiness would improve and it would give students the opportunity to learn what programming is before they decide on their senior subjects.
