Find out about Code Club for your child.
Code Club offers a fun and interactive way for children to build valuable life skills such as logical thinking and teamwork, and also engages them in learning more about the technology they use every day.
Clubs in libraries and community spaces are easy to find — use our map search tool to look for a hosting venue near you. You can get in touch with the Club's host to ask if they have a space available for your child.
Demand for these clubs is high, so you may have to join a waiting list!
Most Code Clubs are run in schools as an extra-curricular activity, and are led by a teacher and an enthusiastic volunteer. If your child's school doesn't already have a Code Club, why not tell them about us to encourage them to start one?
You can download this flyer for teachers and pass it on to the school.
”I volunteer at my daughter’s primary school, running their Code Club. It was easy to set up, and I run it on an afternoon when I do school pick-up, so it fits in nicely with work.”
Geri Reid, Code Club volunteer
Volunteering at a Code Club in your child’s school is a great way to contribute to the school community, and to learn some new skills too!
Code Clubs run for one hour per week outside of school hours. The children work through our specially written projects, which are step-by-step guides to create animations, games, and websites using a variety of coding languages.
As a parent volunteer, you would be there to help the children follow the project instructions, and you would gain digital skills for yourself along the way.
You won't run the club by yourself: a teacher will be there to support you, and you can team up with other parents to run the sessions.
