“A couple of months ago I delivered a CPD session to around 20 teachers on how to teach the Code Club curriculum from within local schools with the aim being to help start new clubs and give more kids the opportunity to learn something about programming.
I’ve received an update informing me that the demand for code clubs has since been phenomenal, with a number of of new clubs having sprung up and being run throughout the city, with dozens of kids involved from different schools.
This was made possible through an initial monetary donation by brightsolid, matched by a grant from the Arts Council which enabled us to buy a load of Raspberry Pi kits. I’m excited about the opportunities afforded by a whole network of Code Clubs in the city, and we’re currently in talks about what we can do around Code Club and the Waterfront”.
Looking to the future, we are sure that Code Club will be a continued success and encourage anyone interested to get involved no matter what their technology knowledge or background. Find our more about how to support and join Code Club here.
