Please complete the registration form 

You will find more details HERE and below. 

This is a great opportunity to encourage an interest in coding.  If you have any queries please email support@codeclub.org

 

What is Code Club?

At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code. We work with a global  community of volunteers, educators, and partners to run free coding clubs, where 9- to 13-year-olds can learn to be creative with code and share their ideas.

Why get involved with Code Club?
Code Club provides FREE, fun step-by-step project guides that help young people to make their own games, animations, and websites. As well as allowing young coders to develop their digital skills, these projects give them the opportunity to explore ideas that are important to them and develop soft skills like problem-solving and teamwork.
The Code Club projects introduce coding concepts one-by-one, so young people can progressively build their knowledge. Adults running a club don’t need to be experienced coders, and many volunteers and educators in our community start out as complete beginners.
Club organisers and volunteers get access to a wide range of helpful resources, such as downloadable certificates and posters. There is also a range of online training workshops, community events and ways to contact the Code Club team if you need additional support.

What does a Code Club look like?
Code Clubs are fun, informal spaces that are inclusive for all young coders.
A typical Code Club:
? Is hosted in a school
? Runs for an hour a week, outside of class time (after school, during lunchtime or as a
breakfast club)
? Is hosted by an educator, sometimes with the help of a volunteer
? Supports 10 to 15 children during a session
? Runs using an internet connection with the existing hardware at your venue, for
example Chromebooks, laptops, or tablets


How do I get involved?
Join the Code Club team at 5pm on Thursday 8 December for a 1-hour online training on how to get started. At this session you’ll learn about what’s involved in running a club, take a look at the Code Club projects, discover some basic coding in Scratch, and get the chance to ask your questions.
