Code Club’s amazing team of Regional Coordinators help us to grow and to support our community across the UK. They attend events, and meet and speak with volunteers, hosts, educators, and partners on a local level.
We’re really pleased to welcome two new members to the team: Adam Williams, our new coordinator for Wales, who has been with us for a few months now, and Anna Pearson, who has just joined us as coordinator for the North East and Yorkshire. We spoke to both of them to find out a little bit more about what brought them to Code Club…
My name is Adam Williams and I’m the Regional Coordinator for Code Club in Wales.
Having started this role in January, I’ve already learned so much about the amazing community of enthusiastic people that are involved in Code Club. I hope I can continue to help Code Club to grow in Wales by supporting the volunteers and educators we work with, and by providing more opportunities for children to enjoy learning to code.
My professional background is in sound engineering, and I spent many years working for a national music charity providing opportunities for young people to engage in music making, music technology, and the arts. I am very interested in how technology has become intertwined into our broader work, learning, social, and daily lives. This is why it’s so crucial to provide children with the opportunity to develop creative, collaborative skills in digital making.

My name is Anna Pearson. I’m the Regional Coordinator for the North East and Yorkshire, and I’m based in Durham.
As the mother of two small children, I was looking for a new, flexible challenge which would fit into my hectic life. That’s what brought me to Code Club! I have spent the last nine years working within the STEM engagement area, so I have a good understanding of the need to promote STEM opportunities to teachers, students, and volunteers alike. I aim to inspire, educate, and highlight the importance of STEM skills.
The North is a real hub for digital technology, and there is a lot of scope to increase Code Club UK’s presence. This is really inspiring, and I can’t wait to get involved. I am excited to meet and build relationships with the existing support network, and utilise their knowledge and experience to explore new partnerships.
