Code Club is a nationwide network of after-school coding clubs for children and young people.
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
Who is the training for?
- People who 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
This event will be held in the university of Salford: Room number 2.02
Thank you to the University of Salford for kindly hosting this training session. Full details of how to get there are can be found on their website.
At 7pm as the Code Club training session wraps up we will be joined by the Code Up Salford meetup group who utilise the room 7pm – 9pm. If you wish, you are welcome to stay for the monthly Code Up meetup and continue working through the Code Club projects or try your hand at something new.
About Code Club
At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
This is why we support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs where young people aged 9-13 build and share their ideas, learning along the way.
We currently have more than 10000 clubs in over 100 countries, and our club projects have been translated into 28 languages.
Our projects are easy to follow, step-by-step guides which help young people learn Scratch, HTML & CSS, and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow young people to build their knowledge incrementally, which also means there’s no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.
