At Mesomorphic, we are passionate about providing learning opportunities to share our passion for coding. During these sessions, we will kick start your coding training, as well as helping to develop your analytical, planning and critical thinking skills.
Our coders and other volunteers will come to your school, where you can use these opportunities to speak to our team to find out more about the fastest growing employment sector in Scotland. You can also find out more information about our work placements and how you can become involved in helping put Shetland firmly on the map as one of the best places to be a coder!
Training the trainer
In order to ensure the project's sustainability we need volunteers to help us deliver sessions to the schools. In order to do this, we will provide bi-annual “Train The Trainer” workshops where we will cover the project material and share tips and experiences from other courses.
We also hope to provide exciting volunteering opportunities in conjunction with Voluntary Action Shetland, such as helping young people between 16-25 work towards their Saltire Awards and gain some solid foundations for their CVs and university applications.
The four weekly sessions we will deliver in the schools follow the national curriculum and will be a mixture of pre-existing material from CodeClub, Coder Dojo and STEM. We will provide the knowledge and materials required to run each club, and work with the schools to ensure that each student has the equipment needed for each session.
CodeClub was amazing. I learned a lot there.
