Coding Club is helping Amble’s children gain digital skills

An out of school club aimed at introducing young people to computer programming, is proving popular with girls and boys in the town.

The club is run by Amble Development Trust, with the intention of helping youngsters get to grips with he basics of coding and digital making.

Organiser Anna Williams said “I’m really impressed by the young people in the club. Some of them are familiar with programming software like Scratch, while others are completely new to it all.

“But they are all benefitting from what they’re learning, and hopefully this will mark the start of a future career in programming or working in the digital sector for many of them.”

The club helps children problem-solve and think analytically, as well as gain skills in coding.

Anna was also pleased at the number of volunteers who have signed up to help. “They are a great help and are really enjoying helping the children.”

The club runs on Wednesdays, 6-7pm. For more information, email anna@ambledevelopmenttrust.org.uk
