Code Club is a nationwide 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.
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.
We’d like to put a Code Club in every single primary school in the country. There are over 21,000 primary schools in the UK, it’s a big task but we think we can do it!
In November 2015 Code Club became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the combined aim of creating a Code Club in every community in the world.
