We recommend that all new CoderDojo volunteers take this free, online e-learning module in order to better understand what volunteering at a Dojo is like. This module is equally relevant for mentors with or without a technical background. It should take around 20 minutes to complete.
You can read about how we launched this module on our blog here.
Once you’ve completed it, you will:
- Understand what mentoring means at a Dojo
- Know what’s needed to be a good mentor
- Have an awareness of some of the different mentoring styles you can use at your Dojo
- Know what resources are available to help mentors
