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).

The Lighthouse at Spurn has undergone a major restoration project during 2015 and is now a Heritage must see for visitors to the area. The Lighthouse tells the story of Spurn through beautifully crafted interpretation story boards and also has a fabulous audio visual experience for visitors to enjoy. The story of Spurn spans across five floors and will enable visitors to get a glimpse into the past of this unique place; the journey concludes at the top of lighthouse where visitors will get a chance to see what Spurn is like from the top of the Lighthouse. We are looking for volunteers who can help bring the story of Spurn to life while our visitors are taking a look around. 



 



What will the volunteer be doing? 



You will inspire and interact with our visitors while they are in the Lighthouse by bringing the story of Spurn to life through talking to them and sharing knowledge about the history and changing landscape that is Spurn today.



You will move around the floors of the Lighthouse and be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have and monitor numbers. Part of this role will be to collect entrance fees so you must be happy with handling money and welcoming visitors.



Making sure visitors are well informed about potential hazards of tides and weather are also a key part of this role, plus keeping the Lighthouse free any of litter that could be a fire hazard.



Volunteers will be required to attend a formal induction and essential training prior to their stay and once volunteering will be expected to commit to at least 1 week to access the free accommodation. We anticipate a closing date of August 11th for applications to this opportunity.
