Would you be interested in adding that little extra to your CV?



 



Hull Libraries runs a Code Club, part of a nationwide network of volunteer-led clubs for children aged 9-11 years.



 



Our club runs for 2 hours on a Thursday evening, school term time, at Hull Central Library.



 



How often you are needed depends on how many volunteers we have. Volunteer as regularly as you wish.



 



We will be there to support you, and provide all the materials you’ll need to help get children excited about digital making.



 

Location

Hull Central Library

What kind of support/supervision will you receive?

Full Training wil be given

Personal qualities and requirements

Code Club is nationally ran charity that encourages children to develop skills in Scratch, CSS & HTML and Python. Have a look at the Code Club website: https://www.codeclub.org.uk/



 



It doesn’t matter so much if you don’t have experience of coding as Code Club provide projects that children can attempt at their own pace. The idea is meant to be one project per session but I just let them manage it as they like – we’re a less structured environment. I encourage parents to participate with their children as well, with computing skills becoming more prevalent in the school curriculum I felt this might come in handy!



 



The site explains how it all works and shows the programmes used. I had only done some basic programming twenty years ago so I’ve taught myself using the Code Club materials (and even then I’m a bit sketchy). Quite often it’s about taking the children through the problem and helping them break it down – they often have the solution. Our aim is to allow children to enjoy coding and digital creativity, we help them to recognise the problem and work through to a solution.



 

Work-ready skills you will learn or develop

  • Organising resources and prior awareness of the projects the children are working on.

  • Have the patience, enthusiasm and interpersonal skills to work with a group of up to 10 children

  • Help children gain skills in computational thinking, problem solving, planning, designing, collaboration and inventive thinking



Develop your own knowledge of programming –

Availability

The club runs every Thursday during term time. We begin at 5:30 to start up all the PCs and make sure the print outs are ready, children and parents arrive at 6 (ish) and we finish at 7:15, but for the last quarter of an hour I often let them explore the finer details of other block programming uploaded onto Scratch (see projects on the Code Club site).

Volunteering tasks in schools can include: -helping out the teacher in the classroom -working one-to-one or in small groups with the pupils -helping with lunchtime or after-school clubs -listening to reading -putting up displays -helping with administration tasks such as photocopying and data entry. Many students wish to volunteer in schools in order to gain classroom experience in preparation for teacher training. Because of the large numbers of people looking for places, it can be difficult to find a school willing to take you on as a volunteer. We've put together some tips on finding volunteering placements in schools below. Tips on securing a volunteering placement in a school: -Phone up or visit the school in person. -Find out the name of the person you need to speak to. This could be the headteacher or the class teacher of the age group you would like to help with -Ask for the direct contact details of the person in charge of volunteering -When you get in touch, explain why you are interested in volunteering, what skills you could bring to the school and how often you would like to come into the school. -When emailing, check the spelling, punctuation and grammar and ensure that you use formal language and no slang. -If the answer is no, then follow up with a thank you and ask them to keep you in mind in case the situation changes. -Please be aware that some special schools may prefer not to take on volunteers in order to maintain consistency for the pupils. Ensure that you give yourself plenty of time to find a placement. The school may ask you to do a DBS check (formerly CRB check) before volunteering and these can take some time to come through. If the school prefers, the Volunteering Desk at HUU can do a DBS check for you. In this case, please bring in a letter from the school on headed paper to confirm this request.
