03: How to Start a Coding Club As a Coach

Congrats on hosting a roadshow and starting your lessons with the students! It is now time to create coding clubs. Download the documents below to get started.

04: Offline Curriculum

Most schools don’t have sufficient connectivity to enable learners to use the online CodeJIKA platform. The offline curriculum enables you to teach without any connectivity and without installing any software.

Teaching Style: Remember, this is mainly self and peer-to-peer driven learning. So as the Coach your job is to enable learners to discuss in small groups every 30 minutes to solve each other’s bugs and make progress. Only after discussing and asking help from another group, should you help them directly.

Freakin' Awesome Questions

CodeJIKA is a coding curriculum designed for high school learners, it aims to promote digital literacy and prepare students for the digital economy.

You can approach your local school’s administration and pitch the idea of starting a coding club. You can also reach out to other students who are interested in coding and collaborate with them to create the club. 

While previous coding or teaching experience can be helpful, it’s not necessarily required to become a CodeJIKA coach. You should have a passion for education and a willingness to learn and help others.

CodeJIKA provides training and support for its coaches, including online resources, webinars, and in-person training sessions. You can also connect with other coaches and educators in the CodeJIKA community to share ideas and resources.

You can start at any time, however if you want your students to take part in the upcoming competitions, please follow the competition page and stay up to date.

You can find it by visiting the Coach Hub page and see the curriculum section: https://codejika.org/coach-hub.

Please look at the milestones document, it will guide you https://codejika.org/coach-hub/

You will receive a daily stipend (Equivalent to $10 in your local currency) based on the fixed number of days aligned with coaching outcomes and the milestones reached.

  1. We have “Day Goals” for each successful day of coaching. ( Equivalent to $10 in your local currency)
  2. And Milestones which equal two daily stipends. ( Equivalent to $20 in your local currency)

For more details on the goals for each day and what the milestone are, please check the “Milestones” document in the “Next Steps” section on the Coach Hub page

Firstly, you’re amazing. Thanks so much for this impact you are making.

In order to keep communication smooth, we request evidence for each day and milestone. Most of this will be submitted via a form once or twice a month. But we’d love to see your selfies in the classroom in our chat groups as well.

Evidence:

“Day Goals” evidence is primarily the selfies and photos you take at the classroom.

But may also include the outcomes created by learners or the attendance register of the day. ( We’ll be building better tools for this as we move along, but for now our reporting is quite simple.)

Milestone Evidence is directly related to the specific milestone. For example, if the milestone is to create a Coding Club, then a filled out Club Ethos sheet and Club Profile along with a photo and list of the founding members is evidence.

We pay via Mukuru or World Remit, but if this is not available for your country an alternative is arranged.

Payments are made monthly, and are calculated based on the number of “Day Goals”and milestones reached which the coach has listed and attached evidence for.
