What is Code Club?
Code Clubs are run by volunteers in communities all across the World, and give children the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
Brookes students will work in small teams together and are matched with students from local primary schools in Headington and Cowley libraries after school for an hour once a week, and are trained and given the resources through Brookes Hub to teach young children to code.

All training provided
You'll be in teaching groups with other Brookes students
Team socials organised
Brookes Hub is inclusive and encouraging of all Brookes students who want to volunteer and will happily accommodate all reasonable adjustments you need
You don't need to know how to code
There's no doubt a knowledge of coding could be useful - but if you've never coded before then you just need an open mind at the training we provide, as your role will be facilitating the children’s learning rather than telling them the answers. Code Club currently works with Scratch, HTML and Python.
Volunteering for Code Club won't cost you
We've made sure all the Code Club locations are on the free U1 and U5 bus routes. However if reasonable adjustments require you take an alternative form of transport, just get in touch and we can cover your costs. We reimburse all Brookes Hub volunteers' travel expenses. We will also arrange and pay for the DBS check you'll need to work with the children.
Why not volunteer with a friend?
Volunteering for Code Club is social and you'll have the chance to meet many like-minded people, but why not ask a friend to sign up with you too?
