I also read that they are offering free access to all 70 of their lessons if you sign up before October 31st, 2014. I contacted the Expresso Coding Team to clarify a few questions I had and they emailed me the information below. Please note, I do not profit financially by blogging any information about companies.

Just to add a note – Espresso Coding has been developed for the UK schools market and curriculum and it would be a manual process to get any international schools signed up for Espresso Coding. Currently we would not be able to offer your school any CPD sessions as these have been developed specifically to address the English National Curriculum. The Espresso Coding service is free for an extended period until October 2014, but after this period there will be a charge based on a schools full time enrolment of eligible pupil”.
