Communities & Events

We’d like to encourage Code Club volunteers to connect to each other and create Code Club communities.

Two heads are better than one. If you are volunteer who would like some help getting started, running your Code Club or can offer help to someone else, then reach out to the community.

Lots of communities have already organised their own meet ups and ‘Getting to know Scratch’ sessions. Excellent work!


Join in online

We've set up Google groups (forum style) so you can start talking to each other. Here you can organise your own local meet ups and say hello to each other. We have also set up a general forum to ask questions about running a club. Play nice!

Code Club in your local community

We encourage you to hold your own Code Club meet ups where ever you are in the country. We want to create an active Code Club community so get your local volunteers together and see how you can help each other out. Send us the details of your meet up and we'll put it up here and tweet it.

  • DVLA Invites you to Code Club @ DVLA

    12 May 2015 at 9:45am

    DVLA have teamed up with Code Club, Stemnet and local primary schools to teach the next generation how to code in South Wales and we need your help.

    It’s all about the children and how the clubs run, so we’ve got four really enthusiastic Primary Schools to come along and showcase their clubs here for the afternoon.

    It’s a fantastic opportunity to get involved, see how it works, speak to the children, teachers and volunteers and find out how much they’ve all benefitted.

    We hope that you’ll want to get involved too.
