The champion’s handbook

Learn about the champion's handbook — your reference guide to setting up and running a Dojo.

In the CoderDojo champion’s handbook, we’ve collected information a CoderDojo champion will need to know to run a Dojo. You can download it here for free!

Most of the topics in this course are covered in it, sometimes in greater depth. It covers:

  • An introduction to coding and CoderDojo
  • The members of your Dojo community
  • Starting a Dojo
  • Running a Dojo
  • Planning your Dojo
  • Working with young people
  • The CoderDojo ethos
  • The CoderDojo community
  • The CoderDojo Foundation

The handbook is a reference guide rather than something you need to read cover to cover. If you’re looking to learn more about a particular CoderDojo-related topic, or want to find the answer to a particular question, this guide is the place to start.
