Steve McGlade: Creating a code club for wellbeing, leadership and of course fun!

Creating a coding club can come with many hesitations but to be discovered is a thriving environment of friendships, learning and leadership.  Creating an environment that is welcoming for all students no matter age or gender is key to creating a successful club within a school.  This was developed in a school that struggles to have a thriving ICT student and teacher cohort therefore it was important to promote and market the club to everybody.  The outcome was student and teacher involvement all within a lunchtime timeframe, and you can achieve success too!
