Event description

Description




Code Club Australia is a network of volunteers and educators focused on 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.

We are excited to have you on board our ‘Getting Started with Coding’ Teacher Training. This training is open to in-service K-6 teachers across all sectors. By the end of this training, you will be all ready to get your classroom coding, or even start your own Code Club at school.

Please register just for yourself and encourage attending colleagues to register independently. There is a limit of two teachers per school with the option to extend depending on registration numbers. In the case of unexpected absence, all registering teachers are asked to nominate an alternate attendee. Contact us anytime with any questions!

As part of the registration process, you are asked to email through a Letter of Nomination from your principal or Line Manager.


What we need you to do

  1. Register via this page
  2. Email a letter of nomination from your principal naming you as the attendee** to teachertraining@codeclubau.org
  3. Don't forget to nominate an alternative attendee should your circumstances change (please name them in your principal's letter)
