MadLab Code Club Trainer Needed!

Code Club Trainer Needed!

Posted by Team MadLab, 18 days ago

We’re looking for someone to run MadLab’s Code Club!

Could that be you?

MadLab has been hosting a Code Club for years now. And – fun fact – MadLab’s was the first Code Club in the world to take place outside of a school setting!

We are now part of a network of over 10,000 clubs across the world. As a Code Club manager, you will be teaching super-keen 9-11 year olds Scratch, HTML, and Python – plus delivering fun activities and projects to engage and inspire the next generation of coders.

The reason this role has opened up is that Chris Ball – our resident maker, tinkerer, all-round coding expert, and lovely person is *really* busy with real-life work. He says:

“It’s been a pleasure to run the Code Clubs at MadLab and MadLab Salford for the last few years. The kids I’ve taught have always been quick to learn, hardworking and a pleasure to teach.”

He adds:

“I’m only stopping due to work commitments, and I hope to restart the club at some point this year [if no-one can step in].”

Do you fancy it?

Here’s the lowdown: Code Club is held at MadLab every Sunday during term time, from 2-3pm. You’ll be given a lot of freedom to run the club as you see fit – and we are big fans of extra curricular activities – like Mitch Altman’s visit for example. You will be trusted with keys to MadLab, and will need to undergo a safety induction as well as DBS checks. Please note that this is a volunteering position.

If you would like to be considered for the role, please email your CV to office@madlab.org.uk.
