The first rule of Code Club is always talk about Code Club.

That’s right. Tell everyone you know.

Specifically we’re looking for programmers to volunteer to run clubs. Without volunteers there are no clubs, they are the life and soul of Code Club.

So please print out this poster and put it up everywhere on every pin board, tree and free bit of wall. Especially near developers! I want to see this poster everywhere I go so if you can’t code but you want to help Code Club then this is a great way to start!



Code Club meet up in London

Code Club meet up on Thursday 14th March 6.30pm – 9pm

Are you interested in volunteering for Code Club? Or are you a teacher at a school who is looking for a Code Club volunteer? Then is this the meet up for you!

We’ll kick off with a 10 minute introduction to Code Club from co-founder Clare Sutcliffe then you can quiz her for about 20 minutes.

Then it’s time for some chatting. Meet teachers and volunteers (we’ll label you up accordingly) and have a nice relaxing beverage.

This event will be hosted by the lovely folks at Steer. They teach web development to adults. Check them out here

Steering a new generation

codeclub-steerSteer is a new London-based education initiative, teaching fantastic web development and design courses – to adults! They’ve just launched with a great range of lessons, from designing and creating a site in HTML and CSS to teaching how to build and maintain the back-end of your site with Ruby on Rails.

The team at Steer have long been supporters of Code Club, helping us out with everything from our very own website to giving our teachers introductory lessons on how to use Scratch.

Because of this, we’re very pleased to announce Steer’s partnership with Code Club! They have pledged to donate part of their courses entry fee to further bolster the rapid growth of Code Clubs all over the UK. Steer will fund a child in Code Club for a year for every day a person is on a Steer course. So if you’re on a Steer course for 3 days then you’ve funded 3 Code Club children for a year!

“What Code Club has achieved so far has been monumental,” said Rik Lomas, co-founder of Steer. “I feel we have a common goal to get more people, of all ages, learning to code. We’re delighted to lend our support and help turn more of the nation’s kids into expert programmers.”

Thanks Steer!
