We can work with a team to help give more children the opportunity to learn to code.
Code Club is programme which has created an international network of free volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9-11.
We create projects for our volunteers to teach at after school coding clubs or at non-school venues such as libraries. The projects we make teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites. Our volunteers go to their local club for an hour a week and teach one project a week.
Each term the students will progress and learn more whilst at the same time using their imaginations and making creative projects. Terms 1 & 2 use Scratch to teach the basics of programming. Term 3 teaches the basics of web development using HTML and CSS. Term 4 teaches Python and so on. As well as learning how to code, children will learn about planning, testing and improving, problem-solving, team work and speaking to a group.
We have also created online training for our volunteers, to make sure they have all the info and know-how they need to run a successful Code Club.
