WHAT IS CODEUP?
CodeUp is the adult version of Code Club, providing free and friendly adult coding tuition.
We will create an open, friendly and supportive learning environment where any adult can attain new digital skills for zero financial cost.
We see regular, packed and enjoyable sessions run in multiple locations. We see people not only learning digital skills, but going on to change their lives based on those new skills. We see engaged and passionate mentors teaching people who’ve never written a line of code putting together an application. We see our students return as mentors to invest in the future of CodeUp.
WHAT IS A CODEUP SESSION?
CodeUp branches run regular monthly drop-in sessions, taster session style workshops and one-off additional events throughout the year. Both organisers and mentors are volunteers, and all our sessions are free to attend.
CodeUp events are always non-profit and free for participants. We do not pay mentors, speakers or organisers. Attendees don’t need any previous knowledge about programming, all the attendees need is a laptop and some curiosity.
Our passion is learning. as we reach adulthood, attending a learning environment so often comes at a cost. any cost is a barrier. We believe in providing the opportunity for adults to learn how to create great digital experiences; whether that’s writing an app for a smartphone or creating a website for fun.
Most importantly, we provide that opportunity without the barriers; We don’t sell you anything and we won’t charge you anything. We’ll give you a way to learn digital skills in a fun, friendly and inclusive environment.
All we ask is to bring along your enthusiasm a drive to learn something new.

It costs us £20 per branch per month just to maintain the email and Meetup accounts. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but we now have nine branches (as of Nov 2016) and more on the way. That’s £180 per month already! If you would like to help us out, please make a donation via paypal using the button below.
