Code Club Australia is the network of volunteers and educators getting kids coding! Through a grant from the Telstra Foundation, Code Club is on a mission to offer FREE professional development to educators keen on getting their students coding in the classroom.
This training provides ideas and links to activities and resources that support the Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum. The session provides a practical and hands-on experience with Scratch in a support environment!
Please note that each teacher must self-register!
Librarians may register, but must be nominated by their Branch Manager or other supervisor in place of principal nomination (see below)
First three teachers to register are honoured from any one school, subsequent teachers to enroll will be waitlisted until we see how registrations go.
Each teacher registered is required to furnish a letter of support from their Principal to attend.
Each teacher registering must appoint an alternate delegate to attend in the case of unexpected absence.
Open to in-service public and private primary school teachers
Steps for registration:
1) Register via this page.
2) Nominate an alternative attendee should your circumstances change (please name them in your Principal's letter).
3) Obtain a letter of support from your Principal naming you as the attendee** We collect this in order to track our impact and outreach.
