Code Club UK is a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for young people aged 9 - 13. We are a key educational programme of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a charity that aims to empower people to learn digital making skills.
We're delighted to be working with the UoNSU to guide students in becoming Code Club volunteers, and match you, your friends and fellow students up with fantastic schools and libraries in your local area.
About your role
Give one hour a week to inspire the next generation! whether you are an experienced coder or an absolute begineer, volunteering with Code Club is a great way to expand your digital skills, make friends and have fun at the same time.
To volunteer at a Code Club you need to:
• Be available for one hour a week to help with a Code Club session in a local school, library or community venue. (these sessions usually take place after school).
• Commit to volunteering for at least one term (6-12 weeks)
• Have time to prepare for the Code Club session each week. This may include organising resources and completing the project you will be doing with the children in advance
• Undertake a DBS check which we will help to arrange.
• Be confident with computers. You don’t have to be a coding genius, most clubs start with simple programs like Scratch, but you need to be willing to learn.
We provide all the materials you need to get children excited about digital making plus provide free online training.
