Code Club is a nationwide network of after-school coding clubs for children. All our clubs are led by volunteers and this training is designed to give volunteers all the information they need before they start running a Code Club.
The training will cover:
What is Code Club?
Volunteering with Code Club
Working effectively with schools
An introduction to Scratch & the Code Club projects
There will also be a hands on session where we'll work through a Scratch project so it would be ideal if you could bring a laptop and have installed Scratch via this link.
Who is the training for?
People who are confident with technology or coding and are keen to find out more about running a Code Club before they start
“Do it, no question. Volunteering for Code Club is immensely rewarding on so many levels: from seeing the kids light up when they solve a problem, to being able to coordinate and communicate to a varied bunch of individuals.”
Steve Manson, Code Club Volunteer
If you have any questions in advance of the session, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or @codeclubnw on Twitter.
The training session is hosted by the amazing Leigh Hackspace (www.leighhack.org) and coincides with their weekly Code Club (6-7pm) so you'll have the chance to see it in progress and talk to the volunteers too. We look forward to meeting you there!
