Code Club are delighted that the event is being held at the brand new Telford Growth Hub at the University of Wolverhampton’s Telford Innovation Campus (more about the venue below).
What is Code Club?
Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11
Venues including schools and libraries all over Telford, Shropshire and the region more widely are seeking volunteers to run after-school Code Clubs for pupils and to help teachers deliver the new Computing curriculum.
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. Many of the projects use Scratch.
At the event:
- find out what’s involved in starting a Code Club
- get an overview of the training offered to volunteers
- hear about the fantastic things that our volunteers have been up to in Telford and the surrounding area
- receive help to match potential volunteers with schools looking to establish a Code Club
- answer any questions that you may have about starting and running a club.
- find out more about our new Teacher Training programme.
