From April 2014 Code Club will deliver Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training to primary school teachers.
We want teachers to feel confident and excited about the new computing curriculum. Our sessions aim to demystify the new curriculum, explain key language and concepts and provide useful materials to use in and out of the classroom.
You will understand the language, concepts and objectives of the new Computing Curriculum. You will learn about programming and leave with materials and resources to help in the classroom.
The sessions are designed to increase your confidence and we’ll show you activities that can be used to enrich other subjects like Maths, Science and English.
Code Club Pro training sessions are designed to keep your attention, get you excited about teaching the new computing curriculum and practising your new skills as soon as possible.
We believe in learning through exploring — we won’t show you a powerpoint presentation on circuits, instead everyone will make a piano out of bananas.
Code Club Pro will train programming experts as volunteers to deliver CPD sessions to primary teachers. We will charge for these services, however, we are a not-for-profit and the scheme is designed to be as accessible as possible so prices will be affordable.
All our materials have been created in collaboration with Computing at Schools and with primary school teachers across the UK.
We will run twilight sessions, INSET days, off-site sessions. You’ll be able to choose from pre-arranged sessions or arrange for a volunteer to come and deliver training at your school.
We are moving as fast as possible. We will launch our live booking system and full website in April.
Full details such as timing, availability and pricing will be available then. If you’d like to hear more or be notified as soon as sessions are available, then sign up here and we’ll let you know.
This is just a mailing list, it does NOT obligate you to purchase course places!
Our trainers are amazing Code Club volunteers and experts in programming. They won’t teach you how to teach — you’re the experts on that front. They want to help you understand the slightly alien world of computer science in the friendliest, most accessible way possible.
At Code Club we think everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of Computer Science. It’s our mission in life to make that opportunity available to everyone whether that’s through after school clubs or teacher training sessions like these. As we’re not for profit it also means we won’t charge through the roof. All profits from these sessions will be ploughed straight back into our work at Code Club.
Having taught over 28,000 children to code in the UK through Code Clubs, we have a lot of experience in successfully teaching programming to primary school children. Children choose to go to our clubs, and schools choose to run them, which means they really must be fun.
Code Club Pro offers computing training and resources for teachers of the computing curriculum.
Code Club is a not-for-profit, 1,800 strong UK network of volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9–11.
Code Club World provides open-source project materials and a volunteering framework to support the running of after-school coding clubs around the world.
