What is it?

Code Club is a nationwide scheme aimed at teaching children how they can use the programming languages that lie behind their favourite apps, games and programs. Volunteers and educators run FREE clubs where children follow step-by-step guides to create simple games, animations and websites, whilst gradually building-up their knowledge of programming theory.


Volunteer Requirements

Ealing Libraries already runs two coding clubs at Acton and Northolt Libraries. We would like to find more volunteers and possibly operate more clubs in other libraries. We are looking for motivated volunteers to help run clubs and help the children with their coding.

  • Happy to work with children from ages of 9-11 years old
  • Able to work with the library staff to ensure the club runs as smoothly as possible
  • Confident with computers - you don’t have to be a coding genius, most clubs start with simple programs like Scratch, but you need to be willing to learn.
