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.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we have provided guidance on ways that you can run your Code Club during this time.

This course is ideal for volunteers, parents, and educators who are keen to join the Code Club network to run a coding club for young people.
