Join this volunteering initiative for children at Key Stage 2, helping to teach them how to code, build their confidence and develop their social skills.

 

How does it work?

  • All you need is a passion for ICT and coding and an interest in enabling children to explore their potential
  • We’ll match you with pupils in a Primary school close to your home or place of work
  • We ask that you attend for one hour each week to work with the children on coding projects and activities
  • The initial commitment is for a school term with the option to extend
  • Business in the Community and Code Club will provide training, volunteer/schools matches, and manage the ACCESSNI clearance process
  • All you need to do is turn up and enjoy the sessions!

Why get involved?

  • Great personal development opportunity
  • A huge sense of achievement
  • Guaranteed rewarding and enjoyable experience
  • Help raise young people’s aspirations and develop their skills for the future
  • Digital technology is growing and continues to have a significant impact on our schools, workplaces, economy and wider society
  • The ICT sector is forecast to deliver the greatest level of job growth between 2016 and 2026 – an estimated 63%
