Description

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.

Hello, Yes It has been a good learning experience to enhance my skill. This is definitely going to help me in my professional career. Thank you

Great information and expression! Learned how I would get practical advice and tips from volunteers, teachers and code club teams, and I also explored the free resources the code club provided. I'm glad you broke it down, just to get a better sense of the concept. Thank you very much.

This short course will give your child the confidence and skills to run a hands-on coding club for young people and inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital manufacturing.
