Are you passionate about gaming and tech?  Do you want to help introduce children to the diverse, exciting world of coding?

Our mission is to introduce children aged 6-14 to the diverse world of coding by running exciting, online clubs with individually tailored, challenges and games.

As a club’s mentor, you’ll use the tools we give you, as well as your infectious enthusiasm, to inspire young people to develop their love of coding and technology. You'll be running Hacker or Modder clubs, or maybe even both! 

Hackers clubs are for 6-11 year olds. You'll use Scratch, which is like putting code together like lego blocks, you don't need to be a pro coder at all, but you should find it interesting and be willing to learn this simple interface.

Whereas Modder clubs are for 10 and up and use both block-based and written Python.

We're currently recruiting mentors for our Game Dev Club mentoring teams!

Successful candidates will also be offered additional hours at new online clubs.

 

Our ideal candidate:

Passionate about technology.
Is a keen gamer.
Has a favourite Pokémon.
Loves working with children and helping them learn new skills.
Great at communicating and able to make learning fun.
Strong IT literacy. Not specifically in code - we use a simple drag and drop interface, and you'll get lots of training on how to use this.
Confident around children.
Enjoy games and have some idea of what makes games fun, be it boss fights, high scores or new heroes
Available during our core hours, Monday to Friday in the afternoon. For "Hacker" mentors this would be between 3.30pm and 7pm, and for "Modder" mentors, between 4pm and 7:30pm (there are also other opportunities outside of these core hours).
A creative personality, and can come up with original ideas for our new mini-projects and activities.
"Modder" mentors would need some level of coding experience.  "Hacker" mentors would not need this.

 

Duties:

Nurturing and supporting the children’s coding development and creations.
Assisting in the running of the online platform in the form of replying to messages from children asking about their code blocks (we use Scratch).

Must-haves:
