Our Parents' Handbook is essential reading for any parent or guardian who would like to know more about CoderDojo.
Does CoderDojo offer adult coding classes?
While we do not run any coding classes for adults, we do have lots of learning resources that you can use for free.
Safeguarding at CoderDojo
We want to make sure all young people at CoderDojo can develop their digital skills in a fun and safe environment. We’re committed to following best practice when it comes to safeguarding, and we do all we can to make sure that Dojo champions and volunteers know how to protect themselves and the children they work with.

Slack brings the CoderDojo community and their passions together in one place. Discussions are organised into topic-specific channels. You can type and share documents, and hop on a voice or video call all from within the CoderDojo Global Slack. It’s available in the browser and as an app (desktop or mobile).
