How to train new mentors for your club
Dojos are often looking for innovative ways to support and encourage parents and other potential volunteers to become CoderDojo mentors. You may find that potential volunteers are very enthusiastic about young people learning new creative skills, but they may need encouragement to try coding so that they have the confidence to get more involved.
Over the past two years, the CoderDojo Foundation team have hosted training sessions across Ireland, the UK, and Belgium. They’ve used their experiences to develop a step-by-step guide to hosting and facilitating a training session, which you can use wherever your Dojo is based!
On Thursday 4 July we will be hosting a webinar to talk you through facilitating a training session using the guide. We will:
- discuss training methods and approaches
- highlight the most useful tips and tricks for facilitating
- provide scenarios to help you overcome any challenges
- give you the opportunity to ask questions
All those who sign up will be emailed a recording of the call afterwards, so you can hear what we discussed even if you can’t join us on Thursday.
