Description

This group meets on a weekly basis throughout term time, with at least ten children attending. You will work as part of a volunteer team to plan and deliver activities and projects for the group to get involved in.
Some I.T knowledge and experience is required, but if you’ve never used Code before – don’t worry – you will soon learn. The children have access to tables, iPads and other software like a Lego Robot and 3D printer!

Due to the Coronavirus there will be social distancing measures in place, as well as hygiene measures in line with public health advice, to ensure volunteers and group users are safe. These measures will have to be followed by volunteers as well as other measures detailed within our Covid 19 policy and in line with risks assessments also carried out. For any volunteer who is not sure of these measures or has any questions, then please get in touch. Anyone who would be considered at high risk if they contracted virus, unfortunately you will not be able to volunteer with us at present, however we would still welcome an application form from you in order that we have your details of file and can contact you at a later stage.
