As someone who recently learned Python, I would suggest that the
following would fit in one day:

>>> - Python hello world
>>> - Python data types
>>> - Python collections
>>> - Python control statements

I think the below would require additional days:

>>> - Object-oriented programming
>>> - Writing web applications with flask

I personally would also tend to include the following in any "get
started from scratch" training:

python coding conventions
.py files, modules, and include
the debugger and testing

... as a beginner, I had to learn all the above before I could
effectively use python.
