”My advice to anyone else working in a library and considering starting a Code Club would be: go for it, what have you got to lose? It’s a really great experience to see the children engaged and learning at a Club they have chosen to come to.”
Charmain Osbourne, Club Host, Ipswich County Library
To host a Code Club you need to have a member of staff available to help run the club and be present in the club sessions. A volunteer shouldn’t be left in loco parentis. This member of staff does not need to know anything about coding, but it's a great chance for them to learn.
Please note: Code Club does not interview volunteers - it is the job of the club host to find out more about the volunteer and check you are happy for them to run a club at your venue.
