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).

We know it’s important that young people have access to information about cancer. Seven out of ten 12-19 year olds in the UK know someone who has, or has had cancer. The same number says they wouldn’t know what to say to a friend with cancer.



 



By giving them information they want and need, we can equip them with facts to make informed lifestyle choices and help shed taboos about cancer. We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.



 



We need your help to raise more income and reach more people so that we can provide Macmillan’s vital services to everyone who needs us.



 



 



- putting up posters and leaflets promoting our largest national fundraising event



- leading on getting a group of students together to organise your own coffee morning within your place of education



- distributing Macmillan collection tins where possible



- organising your own fundraising events throughout the year



- raising awareness of Macmillan and growing support for our work by talking about what cancer is and how Macmillan can help in your assemblies, student council meetings or within your student union meetings



- putting posters and leaflets up in your building to promote keeping healthy



- asking teachers, lecturers and students to become campaigners by having a campaign sign up day.



 



The experience and skills you can obtain by taking on this role:



•           meeting and working with new people



•           learning new skills which would benefit future applications to further education, volunteering roles or employment whilst having fun



•           a reference and invaluable experience for your CV

We’re looking for people who are interested in volunteering - and would be prepared to commit to a Thursday evening recording once a month - from 6.30pm to 9.00pm. We are all on teams for editing, reading, despatch etc and each of us attends on a rota basis - either once a fortnight or once a month.



 



If you are ‘techy’ already then the training for the sound recording role for example should be fine - but probably the best thing for anyone interested in any aspect of the work we do, would be to visit us on a Thursday evening. 



We are very fortunate indeed to have our own recording studio in central Hull - thanks to you legacy of a kind volunteer many years ago.

Personal qualities and requirements

Volunteers come from all sorts of different backgrounds and are aged from 17 to well over eighty in some cases, but the team system works extraordinarily well and we have never missed an edition in nearly forty years. We put together a varied magazine of local news, articles and information for the blind - which we hope meets the needs of our listeners, many of whom live alone.
