Our aim is to inspire the next generation to get excited about computer science and digital making.
At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
To do this, we support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for children aged 9-11 to build and share their ideas, learning along the way.
We currently have over 10,000 clubs in over 100 countries, and our club projects have been translated in 28 languages.
Our projects are easy to follow step-by-step guides which help children learn Scratch, HTML & CSS and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to build their knowledge incrementally, meaning there’s also no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.
We also support active clubs with a range of extra resources like certificates and posters, as well as competitions and offers.
Code Club was founded in 2012, and in 2015 joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity. Code Club is a key educational programme for the Foundation, working to help many more young people learn how to build their ideas with code.
Since 2012 there have been 7416 clubs registered in the UK
We work with volunteers and educators across the UK to inspire the next generation to get excited about computer science and digital making.
