Prepare to run a fun and educational Code Club
Code Club is a global network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for 9- to 13-year-olds.
This short course will give you the confidence and skills to run an in person Code Club for young people and inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making.
You’ll get practical advice and tips from volunteers, teachers, and the Code Club team, and you’ll explore the free resources which Code Club provides.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions on face to face meetings, we are currently only allowing new club registrations from teachers on our website. If you are a volunteer and would like to run a club when venues reopen, please continue to do the course and get ready to run a Code Club.
What Will I Learn?
- Learners will engage our resources to support them to run a Code Club.
- Learners will design their own action plan to get a club started.
- Learners will identify what makes a great Code Club.
- Learners will engage with the Code Club and digital making communities.
